The Red Arrows are due to perform a display as Cunard’s three ships sail together from Southampton tomorrow evening.

The flying display is due to start at 7.30pm with a fly-past over Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria as they head for the Isle of Wight.

The ships will also receive a send off from yachtsmen and spectators at Cowes and The Royal Yacht Squadron.

Cunard is hosting five children who have won competitions to visit the three ships for a ‘captain for the day’ experience as part of the three ships celebrations.

The winners had to write in explaining why they deserved to be a captain and they were judged on the creativity of their entries.

The children will tour Queen Mary 2 and Queen Elizabeth, spending time with the captains and a bridge visits.

They will have lunch on board and finish their day with a trip round all three Queens in a speedboat.
