Have your say

THEY’RE world famous for their courage and skill behind the controls of nimble aircraft.

And now, the Red Bull Matadors are getting ready to perform acts of aerial derring-do in the skies over Portsmouth.

The airborne stunt duo will be part of four days of entertainment to mark the America’s Cup World Series in late July.

They will shoot into the skies at midday on ‘Big Saturday’ – July 25 – just before the racing teams take to the water at 12.30pm. The duo consists of Paul Bonhomme and his wingman Steve Jones.
