The Red Arrows took to the Isle of Man skies for 50th display season on Tuesday with a set of stamps on board

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 adhesive sets of its 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 them in action over the Isle of Man.
