The Red Arrows Came to Falmouth

13 Aug

Like thousands of others we went to watch the spectacular flying of The Red Arrows today. My photos do not do the event justice – you need to feel the thrill as they pass each other so terrifyingly closely, to hear the roar of the engines and to marvel at the skill of the pilots. Here’s a small taster in a gallery. Click any photo for more detail.

    The skill that these guys have is just beyond belief. I watched a documentary on them some time ago and you can’t imagine the kind of preparation and practice that goes in to their displays. Also extremely dangerous. They just have to be admired. 🙂

    Some things are so hard to capture in a photo, but to stand under them as they pass over and you can feel the earth shake is truly amazing.
