It might be a grey and drizzly day, but there's a very good reason to turn your eyes to Kent's skies today.

The nationally beloved Red Arrows stunt team are set to fly over a large section of north western Kent, according to military-airshows.co.uk.

Flying over a huge part of east England, this Kentish cameo isn't part of any specific family event, but will see the world-renowned crew pass over London, Essex, Suffolk and even as far north as Lincolnshire.

It's not the first time we've seen the 9 planes in flight over Kent this year – having made appearances at Headcorn's Battle of Britain Airshow and the Folkestone Airshow.

This isn't a ticketed event – so all you'll have to do is keep your eyes and ears peeled for the planes at the right time, and you might just catch a glimpse.

The planned flight path will see the arrows fly directly over Sidcup, Dartford and Gravesend

If all goes to plan, the Red Arrows should arrive in Gravesend at around 12.17pm, meaning you'll be able to grab a glimpse of them very shortly before that time if you're further west on their flight path.

They will fly over Sidcup and Bexley first, before passing near Crayford, Dartford and Swanley, before flying north over Ebbsfleet, Swanscombe and Gravesend.

The tiny glimpse of the Red Arrows comes because of a major arms trade event currently taking place in Central London at the Excel centre.
