Red Arrows at Epsom College, KLIA, Oct 17

SHAH ALAM: The Red Arrows display in Malaysia will be held over the Epsom College, Bandar Enstek, near KLIA on Oct 17. The display will be held from 12.30pm to 230pm. The exact time for the display will likely be around 1.30pm.

Only invited guests will be allowed into the college grounds, however. Bandar Enstek, located near the KLIA, is accessible by various highways and also the trunk roads. As for the display itself, if its a full one – depending on weather – it will be around 24 minutes. More on the Red Arrows display here.

The British High Commission in Kuala Lumpur is hosting the Red Arrows with the cooperation of BAE Systems.

I have never been to Epsom College, but based on the Google Map there are plenty of areas where the public and spotters can catch a good view of the display. Just be there early and remember to bring plenty of water and some kind of shades.

Although the display is at Epsom college, the team will still be based at the Subang airbase during its visit here. The Red Arrows tour – the first since 2007 – is part of its 2016 Middle East and Asia tour.
