The Red Devils
The British Army’s official parachute display team will be a star attraction of our Lifeboat Week. The Red Devils, based at Netheravon Airfield on Salisbury Plain, are a team of 15. They are widely acknowledged as among the best display parachutists in the world, and carry out spectacular shows at public events worldwide, promoting the British Army and the Parachute Regiment, known as ‘The Paras’. A classic Red Devils display will see up to ten team members jumping from an altitude of 10,000ft.  Trailing smoke to demonstrate their speed and movement, the highly skilled skydivers will freefall at speeds up to 120mph before opening their parachutes. Then they will demonstrate breath-taking high-speed ‘swoop’ landings and spectacular ‘canopy formations’.  2.30pm.

Vouchers for Mark Hicks restaurant, Town Brewery, Lyme Regis Golf Club, Taunton leisure Centre, Cellar 59, Dorset Golf Club.
