The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team (RAFA), the Red Arrows, flew into Hong Kong recently and ‘landed’ safely in time to witness the rebranding of Cosmopolitan Hotel Hong Kong to Dorsett Wanchai.

The Red Arrows are based at RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire and fly the BAE Systems Hawk T1, complete with distinctive Union flag tailfin. Their aim is to enthral and inspire people with their display of speed and precision and to promote and support UK industry whereas Dorsett Wanchai thrives on the ‘Asia meets Britain’ philosophy is all about showcasing the excellent Asian hospitality complemented with the edginess of British charm and decor.
