The Red Arrows RAF Display Team performed another spectacular display in the jets over Ramsey and Douglas Bay on Tuesday in celebration of its 50th Display season during TT race week. Formations included the trademark diamond and swan among others. The nine jets also carried 500 pairs of panes of the Red Arrows prestige booklet, which were postmarked Ramsey and Douglas respectively.
Prior to the Douglas Bay display Red Arrows Squadron Leader Mike Ling, 'Red 10' and the team's Technical Director who is an avid stamp collector visited the Post Office's TT shop at the Grandstand and are pictured above with the booklets.
This stunning collector's item features two complete self-adhesive sets of special six-stamp issue marking the 50th Display Season of the RAF Red Arrows, plus special-designed labels featuring icons of the team and photos of the team in action over the Isle of Man. The self-adhesive stamp pane from the booklet is also available separately. The issue date for this item is 21st May 2014.
