A great photo. I've no idea what the red light indicates but it's not usually good news! Duck

@ Timduck - not necessarily bad news either. In my limited experience of sitting in jet cockpits (Hunter, Gnat & Hawk simulators) there are a pair of big red Master Warning Lights on either side of the coaming which illuminate to indicate something requires attention.

It could be a simple thing like low fuel, which the pilot would be well aware of, and it's only about five minutes flight time to Valley for a top up from this spot. It could also indicate other much more serious things, but he didn't eject Wink

Ta for the comment Tim, and hunter & lufc too.

Fine photo, it probably tells his kettle's switched on.

Great photo, with fine detail and just enough blur in the background to show the speed.

The light is to warn the pilots that there are photographers near bye, thus allowing them to present the aircraft in the best way to permit great photos to be taken, such as this!
