The Red Checkers will provide a formation aerobatic display for the people of Auckland when they take to the skies in a display of manoeuvres set to wow audiences ahead of both RWC semi-final matches.

Approximately three hours before the games start on Saturday and Sunday (6.00pm), the Red Checkers will descend over Auckland Harbour, near the Official Fan Zone at Queens Wharf, and perform a display as a prelude to the semi-final matches.

"We're proud to be flying at such a special event that marks our rugby history," says RNZAF Squadron Leader Jim Rankin.

"We're backing the All Blacks all the way."

The Red Checkers showcase the flying skills of the RNZAF, and provide a tangible demonstration to the public of their key values of teamwork and professionalism. They are well known for their professional and skilful high standard of flying.
