Thousands of locals and visitors alike flocked to the town’s waterfront to watch the spectacular 20-minute display. The official figure is estimated at 30,000, although in reality there were thousands more watching from other viewpoints around the Carrick Roads.
The full display included some of the Red Arrows’ signature formations including the Heart, Arrow and Concorde.
Guest of honour was 10-year-old James Drage-Hubert, a pupil at King Charles School, Falmouth, who won FHC’s competition to design a poster promoting the Red Arrows event.
FHC Chairman David Ellis said: “The Red Arrows are always an awe-inspiring sight and we are delighted 30,000 people agreed with us and came out to cheer them on.
“This is the third year we have brought the Red Arrows to Falmouth and I think we can safely say they are now one of the highlight of Henri Lloyd Falmouth Week.
“Falmouth Harbour Commissioners were proud to sponsor the Red Arrows again this year and to bring an extra special bit of excitement to Henri Lloyd Falmouth Week.”
Harbour Master Captain Mark Sansom worked with the Red Arrows to bring them to Falmouth and with Red Arrows pilot Red 10 to provide running commentary on BBC Radio Cornwall throughout the display.
As well as sponsoring the Red Arrows FHC has played a major role in ensuring sailors and teams competing in events over the week long festival remain safe, both whilst out at sea and when moored within the harbour.
