Squadron Leader Tom Bould is the Team Leader.

He said: “It is an honor to lead the Red Arrows for the 2021 posting season, which will be my first as a team manager.

“My team and I will be presenting a world leading aerobatic show across the UK and abroad, featuring the best of the British.

“Months of hard work and preparation, by pilots and support staff, go into a Red Arrows performance that will uphold and build on the distinguished history and legacy of our predecessors.

“However, the pride and privilege of creating such a show – meant to inspire people of all ages and from all walks of life – is a perfect motivator.”
