Long Island Sports Cars welcomes The Red Arrows, also known as the Royal Airforce, as they continue on their North America Tour . #RedArrowsTour
Along the tour there will be :
- More than 20 displays
- 98 separate ground engagements
- 11 years since the Red Arrows last visited North America
- 108 people on tour, including pilots, engineers and support staff
- 12 Red Arrows Hawk aircraft and 1 Atlas A400M RAF transport aircraft
The Red Arrows’ Hawk T1 jets will be flown to North America over three days.
This is because, as primarily training aircraft, they were not intended to refuel in the air and do not have the range to make the transatlantic crossing in one sortie.
After leaving the team’s base of RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire, UK, they will be flown via several stops, including airfields in Scotland, Iceland and Greenland, before reaching Canada and eventually Halifax – the first major location of the tour.
Aston Martin Long Island has decorated a 2019 DB11 Volante in celebration of this moment in our brands history as the amazing Red Arrows display their exquisite technique and precision. Visit our showroom from 8/22/19 through the end of August to view this special DB11 in person. Our Aston Martin showroom is located at 1047 Northern Blvd. Roslyn NY 11576.
