Red Arrows dog mascot Dusty's grave transformed for anniversary

The long-forgotten grave of the Red Arrows' first mascot, a dog called Dusty, has been transformed to mark the team's 50th display season.

Dusty was killed by an aircraft on the eve of the Red Arrows' first display at RAF Fairford, in 1965.

He was buried at the Gloucestershire base but his grave became neglected.

Now his owner, Henry Prince, 80, from Norfolk, has returned to RAF Fairford to see the Labrador retriever's resting place, which has been cleaned up by school children.
