The Red Arrows are to perform a flypast over Glasgow as part of celebrations to mark the centenary of the Royal Air Force.

The RAF's world-famous aerobatic team will be seen above Glasgow's Science Centre at 15:29.

The centre is hosting a weekend of events and displays which includes the RAF100 Aircraft Tour.

Five iconic aircraft, including the Sopwith Snipe, Spitfire, Harrier and Typhoon are on display.

Members of the public are also being invited to sit in the cockpit of the world's most advanced fighter jet, the Lightning stealth combat jet.

Organisers said children are also able to get up close to a specially designed RAFA Mini-Scale Spitfire.

The event will be open to the public on Saturday and Sunday from 09:00 to 18:00.
