The Blades team will be taking to the skies with a Spitfire this afternoon (Wednesday).

Our photographer spotted them in action over Kettering this morning and all eyes will be back on them with a display at 4.05pm today.

This year, The Blades flew at 61 public airshows across the UK and Ireland.

As well as the airshows, they also displayed at new venues including Her Majesty The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations at Burghley House and for service personnel aboard HMS Bulwark.

With more than 30,000 hours of flying between them, The Blades are among the most experienced display pilots in the UK.
