THOUSANDS of fans at Wembley Stadium enjoyed a flypast by the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team before kick-off of the Euro 2020 final featuring England.

Image shows the Royal Air Force Acrobatic Team (The Red Arrows) conducting a flypast of Wembley Stadium as part of the closing ceremony of Euro 20 (21) prior to the final match where England take on Italy in their first visit to the final of a major tournament since 1966.

Trailing signature red, white and blue colours, the Red Arrows took part in the closing ceremony of the competition, ahead of the match between England and Italy.

It is the first time England have reached the final of a major competition since 1966.

Earlier in the day, the Red Arrows joined other members of the Royal Air Force in sending their support to Gareth Southgate’s team with a short message on social media.
Squadron Leader Tom Bould, Team Leader of the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, led the formation over Wembley as Red 1.

He said: “Like so many others, we have been inspired by the incredible focus and teamwork demonstrated by England throughout the Euros and the leadership.

“To be able to salute both teams and fans at Wembley before the final of this thrilling competition was a huge privilege for the Red Arrows.”
