One of the many benefits to living at Akrotiri, in Cyprus, is the thrice-daily Red Arrows display in the spring!  Sitting with a coffee on your patio, or venturing to the cliff tops, residents are treated to a variety of exciting aerobatic manoeuvres as the Reds undertake their annual spring training.  However, this photo above is one spectacular view residents never get to see!

Many love the opportunity to watch the Red Arrows at close quarters and away from the crowds and others (eventually) look forward to the quieter times when the Reds return to the UK!  Excitement or quiet-seeker aside, most residents agree that it is one of the wonders of living at RAF Akrotiri!
