With their display season well underway, the RAF Falcons thrilled crowds once again at venues across the UK.
Their weekend started with Royal Cornwall Show. Visitors flocked to the country’s biggest annual event, where there is something for everyone.
Wowing the crowds with their precision and accuracy, the RAF Falcons landed in the main ring, having showcased their new 2022 season display.
Next stop for the Team was Teesside Air Show; unfortunately, due to bad weather the team were unable to display but are looking forward to next year. First year Falcon and hometown lad Sergeant Sean McCabe said:
“It was extremely disappointing not being able to jump on home turf. The weather really predicts our displays; there is always next year and its in the diary and something to look forward to.”

Final display for the Team was Cosford Air Show. Returning after two years, this was one not to be missed and the weather, thankfully, was on their side. The air show told the story of aviation and Royalty spanning 70 years, with many themed displays.
The RAF Falcons took to the skies for their final display of the weekend, jumping from an RAF Chinook helicopter to the delight of the crowds below, a perfect and fitting end to a busy display weekend.
Flight Lieutenant Mike Reeve said:
“We were extremely lucky enough to display at the Royal Cornwall Show. Albeit windy conditions, we were able to achieve a jump at 4000ft which featured the criss-cross and carousel. We were delighted by the warm reception from the Cornish crowd. Post-drop we demonstrated to the crowds the repacking process in the military village. On Sunday we opened one of the largest air shows in the UK at RAF Cosford. We displayed alongside some of the biggest names in the air display circuit, including the Chinook display team who provided our platform to jump prior to commencing their own display. Another busy weekend for the RAF Falcons.”
