Press Releases:
Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on RAF Display Teams in 2020

Noting the restrictions currently in place on the UK population during the effort to combat the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Royal Air Force has suspended all displays from its various teams and bands until further notice. This suspension follows the similar announcement this week of the pause in the Red Arrows display season.

This decision will affect the following formations: Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, the Typhoon Display team, the Queen's Colour Squadron, the Chinook Display team, the RAF Falcons, the Grob Tutor Display Team, RAF Music Services, all RAF voluntary bands, and the RAF Pipe Band.

No decision has been taken on this year's display season for all RAF display teams. The RAF will work with event organisers and adapt to the rapidly changing situation as it develops.

Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on RAF Display Teams in 2020...

The RAF Falcons Parachute Display Team is the only centrally funded, professional, military parachute display team in the UK. The RAF Falcons parachute display is both unique and flexible. This is necessary due to weather conditions that will dictate which of the three types of show the team may be asked to perform at very late notice:

High show: 9000 ft - 12,000 ft above ground level
Mid show: 5000 ft - 9000 ft above ground level
Low show: 2500 ft - 5000 ft above ground level

The RAF Falcons Parachute Display Team utilises a variety of aircraft, from which to jump, depending on aircraft availability and the nature of the display, including the C-130J Hercules, Chinook, Puma and Dakota.
