The Red Arrows will perform a precision display over Stornoway this evening (Monday) as part of the Port Authority’s 150th anniversary celebrations.

The display will start at 5pm and finish at 5.30pm with the main viewing area beside Stornoway Ferry Terminal. A commentary will be provided by the Red Arrows Squadron Leader Mike Ling.

Access to the free event can be gained through the main vehicular gate to the ferry terminal and the gate behind the bus station, all spectators are welcome after 3pm.

The Nicolson Institute and Council car parks are also available for parking provision as the town centre is expected to be busy.

There will be an area set aside for disabled parking in the ferry marshalling area.

Spectators are reminded that the main viewing area is at Stornoway Ferry terminal and the Red Arrows have stated that crowds should not gather in other locations and therefore the Arnish Road and the Low Road after the Woodlands Centre will be closed temporarily.

The famous Red Arrows are the public face of the RAF. This year’s Squadron is led by David Montenegro - one of nine display pilots.

Based at RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire, The Red Arrows have completed 4,660 displays in 56 countries by the start of this season.
