Red Arrows fly-past to add coup de grace to Cunard’s Three Queens salute in Liverpool

Red Arrows fly-past to add coup de grace to Cunard’s Three Queens salute in Liverpool
Cunard’s Three Queens on the Mersey event, with Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria performing synchronised manoeuvres on the river for the very first time, will receive a finishing touch with the addition of a flypast by the Red Arrows on Bank Holiday Monday May 25.

The Red Arrows will perform the fly-past at 1.50pm as the fleet completes its manoeuvres.  The world famous aerobatic team will follow the Mersey in from the sea, flying in formation over the three ships to create an extraordinary spectacle on the river.   

Cunard director Angus Struthers said:  'The fly-past by the Red Arrows will add an amazing extra wow to the day – Nine jets in the sky, Three Queens on the river and One Magnificent City.  What an unforgettable combination that will be.  I urge everyone to come and see the spectacle, soak up the atmosphere and become part of a really special, once-in-a –lifetime event.'

Squadron Leader David Montenegro, Red 1 and team leader of the Red Arrows said: 'The Red Arrows are pleased to be able to play a part in the Three Queens celebrations on the Mersey and we look forward to creating a special moment for the crowds on both sides of the river.'
