Red Arrows

May 30, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

With the good weather set to end soon and the display season about to start I thought I would take advantage of living so close to the Red Arrows base and go along to shoot one of their practice displays.  They spend most of the spring in Cyprus preparing for the new season and training the new pilots  before getting display approval.  Once back in the UK they undergo more intensive training before the season starts in earnest.

This year there are only 7 display planes (although they will use 9 in some flypasts).  This is due to tragic events last year where two pilots lost their lives and also because one of the current pilots requested to leave the team.  Here are some of the shots from today.
