Squadron Leader David Montenegro, Red 1 and Team Leader of the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, will be flying at the front of the nine-aircraft formation over the Pride event.

He said: “The Red Arrows are honoured to feature as a part of this year’s Pride in London.

"The flypast will illustrate the team’s role representing both the United Kingdom and also the dedicated, skilled and talented people drawn from all backgrounds serving across our Armed Forces.

"Hopefully all those attending Pride in London will be inspired by the flypast and enjoy the occasion."

More than 200 LGBT Defence Personnel are expected to march in this year’s Pride in London Parade.

If you would like to show your support to those RAF LGBT Personnel taking part in the Parade, the Parade itself will commence at 1pm from Portland Square. To see the Parade Route and plan where you would like to watch it from, please go to the Pride in London Website.
