THE world famous Red Arrows are coming back to the Northern Ireland International Air Show in Portrush.

Last year, the RAF aerobatics display team pulled out of last year’s event after the death of a pilot in a crash in Dorset.

Flt Lt Jon Egging, 33, from Rutland, was killed when his Hawk T1 aircraft crashed following a display at the Bournemouth Air Festival.

This year’s air show will be held on Saturday and Sunday, September 8-9.
