Armed Forces Day has teamed up with acrobatic airline The Blades to offer one lucky winner the opportunity to join the stunt flyers for an adrenalin-fuelled flight.

To be in with a chance, you have to impress The Blades team by performing some of their moves, or by coming up with your own, and recording the results.

You can view the current entries on the Flight to Remember website, and competition entries will also be uploaded onto YouTube.

You can see Culture24's own superbly-choreographed entry online here.

Over the past three years, The Blades have flown more than 300 displays in front of more than 18 million people and have over 20,000 hours of military flying experience in the RAF between them.

The eight Blades' pilots have an outstanding heritage with OBEs, a distinguished flying cross, and a Mentioned in Dispatches between them.

Armed Forces Day honours the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community, from currently serving troops to Service families, and from veterans to recruits.

The first ever Armed Forces Day event will be taking place at Historic Dockyard Chatham on June 27 2009 and will be complemented by hundreds of events in towns and cities across the UK.
