Scarborough War Games club presents:-

War Torn, a weekends war games event in Scarborough on the 25th and 26th June 2011.

Here is a bit of a run down of whats going on over the show weekend.

- Aerobatic display by the renowned Blades team
Several Blades’ pilots commanded RAF Harrier Squadrons in the most exacting of circumstances (in Iraq and Afghanistan) and one of them led the Red Arrows. Six of the Blades were Harrier pilots, two were Jaguar pilots, all were RAF instructors and Blades 1 to 4 are all former Red Arrow pilots.
The Blades fly an aircraft called the Extra 300 LP; one of the leading high-performance aerobatic aircraft in the world.
