The Red Arrows celebrate the arrival of Prime Minister Narendra Modi with a flypast over Parliament Square, London. They created the Tricolour with their fumes….reports Asian Lite News
The Indian Air Force aerial demonstration team (Surya Kiran) has recently reformed using four Hawk aircraft and India has over 100 BAE Systems Hawks within its fleet of aircraft, some of which were built in the UK, so the trade ties remain strong between the two countries.
Prime Minister David Cameron earlier said the Ministry of Defence has scrambled to find the right colour of saffron for the Red Arrows to match with the colours of the Indian flag.
“I think it’s going to be spectacular. We are going to see for the first time ever the Red Arrows flying but with the colours of the Indian flag coming out in the smoke behind,” Cameron said. “I can’t tell you how many officials it took in the MoD to find the orange smoke – it was one of the most complicated procurement acts we had in recent times. But that will happen.”
