As part of a regional tour, renowned British aerobatic team the Red Arrows will perform a free show over the Corniche on Thursday, Nov. 7th.

The team’s nine red BAE Hawks, all flown by British Royal Air Force pilots, will conduct a series of rolls and formations for crowds gathered at the West Bay end of the seafront from 2:15pm.

The team decided to use its scheduled daily shows at the Dubai Air Show later this month as a springboard for a tour across the region, and will also stop in Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait and Oman.

The Red Arrows, officially known as the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, turn 50 years old next year.

They’ve performed more than 4,500 displays in 54 different countries, including the opening of the London Olympics in 2012.

Here’s a video showing them in action at an air show this summer:
