Cleared for landing! Red Devils to drop in for town celebration

THE world-famous Red Devils parachute team will drop into Whitehaven Harbour to help celebrate the town’s World War One Week.

by Andrew Clarke

The devils will meet fans and sign autographs when they land in town on Tuesday, May 6.

Other displays that will light up the skies above Whitehaven include a flypast of a Dakota – a World War Two aircraft from the Battle of Britain team – and a jaw-dropping show from Gerald Cooper, one of the best display pilots around.

The displays (scheduled for 12.45pm to 1.30pm) will conclude Whitehaven’s Freedom Parade, which begins at 11.30am, to run from the hub along Duke Street, Scotch Street, Lowther Street, King Street and back to the hub for the air displays and speeches.

Included in the parade will be the Band of the Royal Marines followed by the ceremonial unit of the Royal Navy carrying the freedom of the borough scroll, the Army and the RAF. Following them will be a small number of veterans and tri-service cadets.
