A FLYPAST by a former RAF Dakota aircraft will form a focal point of Rotherham’s Armed Forces Day celebrations.
The historic transport craft will soar over the town centre on Saturday, June 29, as Rotherham pays tribute to its men and women in uniform.
The celebrations, running from 10.30am to 4.30pm, will kick off with a parade from the Town Hall to All Saints’ Square, led by the band of the Royal Armoured Corps.
After the troops are inspected by the Mayor of Rotherham, Cllr Jenny Andrews, the Armed Forces Day flag will be raised.
There will be vintage vehicles, weapon displays, wartime re-enactors, live music, stalls and family activities.
The flypast is due to take place at 2.20pm (weather permitting).
