The aircraft, which was donated by the Ministry of Defence (MOD) through RAF Heritage, will be displayed alongside a Concorde and will be there to commemorate 100 years of the RAF.

Red Arrows flew with the Concorde over Edinburgh on the 1st July 1999 to mark the opening of the Scottish Parliament.

The Red Arrow is the exact same to fly over the Scottish capital and is scheduled to be displayed on the same day as the important event.

RAF fast jet pilots mainly use the Hawk for advanced training. The Hawk was first used in 1976.

Over 1000 have now been sold worldwide.
