Smoke





Red Arrows with red and blue smoke
The smoke trails left by the team are made by releasing diesel into the exhaust; this oxidises straight away, leaving a white smoke trail. Dyes can be added to produce the red and blue colour. The diesel is stored in the pod on the underside of the plane; it houses three tanks: one 50-imperial-gallon (230 L) tank of pure diesel and two 10-imperial-gallon (45 L) tanks of blue- and red-dyed diesel. The smoke system uses 10-imperial-gallon (45 L) per minute; therefore each plane can trail smoke for a total of seven minutes – 5 minutes of white smoke, 1-minute of blue and 1-minute of red.

These pilots have nerves of steel, hurtling towards each other as they do: how they even see each other beats me.
And what an interesting write up about the smoke trials, all knew stuff for me, Dave.
And your shot captures that by pass with perfect precision.
Ronnie.

surprised by the write up but even moreso by the exif - 1/400s seems an odd choice for something this fast and perhaps is the reason for the one plane to be unfocused?

otherwise, excellently timed - how did you know they were going to cross?

They called out the moves first kept camera on one aircraft panning. Some one shouted there close then hit button for rapid images.
So it was team work from family.
