Weather Pauses Red Arrows Passing at Edinburgh Military Tattoo


A planned Red Arrows flyover at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo was postponed at the last minute due to weather conditions.

The RAF exhibit team was due to fly over Edinburgh Castle on Friday night, with thousands of spectators on the castle’s promenade and around the city watching.

However, the foggy conditions were dense, causing some disappointment as the overpass didn’t go ahead.

The RAF’s Scotland account tweeted: “Sadly, it looks like a haze (basically cloud cover…) will prevent the Red Arrows from flying over the city this evening. Sorry!

“But we can still have a great show!”

The Army Tattoo has returned to Edinburgh for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic broke out.

This year’s show, which runs until August 27, features more than 900 performers from around the world.

They include Mexico’s Banda Monumental, whose over 100 performers deliver dramatic costumes and the country’s vibrant carnival atmosphere.

The US military band also made their debut at Tattoo, performing military mixes of traditional and contemporary hits.

The theme of this year’s show is “voice” and is inspired by people around the world who continue to share and connect with each other through words, songs, music and dance. Weather Pauses Red Arrows Passing at Edinburgh Military Tattoo
