Red Arrows and other aircraft

After all the nature and beaches and lovely walks, here’s something completely different!

Because Newborough is so close to the RAF base at Valley, it isn’t unusual to see military aircraft passing by, or practising manoeuvres along the coast.

You will get much better views from the visitor / viewing car parks at Valley (that’s where these last two photos were taken) than from Newborough .  They are free.  There is information on how to find the car parks on the RAF’s Valley website. It takes about 20 minutes to drive there from Newborough.
