According to an insider, there is a “massive, under-the-table” investigation into alcohol and “suspected inappropriate behavior.” According to them, the head of the RAF is personally involved in the investigation.
One pilot has also been sent home from Greece, where the aerobatics display team is training, according to the source.
Team members have been posting photos on social media from the Hellenic Air Force base of Tanagra, north of Athens.
Sources claim that a drinking problem was reported to Whitehall chiefs less than halfway through the Greek leg of Exercise Springhawk.
“A member of the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Display Team – the Red Arrows – has been temporarily withdrawn and has returned to the United Kingdom for personal reasons,” an RAF spokesperson said. At this point, it would be inappropriate to make any additional comments.
“The Red Arrows’ pre-season display training and preparations for events such as the Platinum Jubilee program are continuing.”
According to MailOnline, RAF insiders dismiss claims of drinking.
