Dear Ministry of Defence,

Dear Sir/Madam,

My request is in relation to the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Display Team: The Red Arrows. More specifically, I'm requesting information regarding the in flight procedures used by the team members during a display; to clarify, the information I'm requesting is a list of command words used by the Red Arrows pilot(s) during a display and their corresponding meanings  and subsequent actions (if relevant) - including any confirmation to be given by any other pilot(s). I would like to request commands from the beginning of a display (I.e. From engine start) to the conclusion (I.e. When the closing down procedure is complete). The display season I am most interested in is the 2016 season, with Squadron Leader Montenegro as Red 1, if this makes any difference.

Also, if possible, I would like a copy of the RAFAT Display Directive and Standard Operating Procedures; and the synchro aid memoir used when training Red 7

Yours faithfully,

Kyle Stubbs
