RED ONE

By Kevlar
Well, the Red Arrows are out here for the next 6 weeks or so doing their practice for the airshow season. They practice atleast 3 times a day - doing 40 minute sorties Akrotiri.

I went up onto the cliffs today where they do the majorty of their training - you can even look down on them as they fly low above the sea!

Truely spectacular - never get bored of watching them.

Thanks for looking - C&C welcome.....and appreciated - I am not very good at photographing moving objects, but practice and advice will always help.

Kevin

Brings back memories. Am just starting to miss the place. Excellent shot AND good to see the new livery ... prefer the old one myself. Excellent stuff and keep going up to that lighthouse..... Get the keys from my chums in Customs and you can stand on the tower on the outside looking even more down on the reds as they toodle past. Excellent stuff

Very nice mate. Bit warmer than it is here! Snowed in at the mo. Tell Bob to put his hand in his pocket and revisit for a Keo and a chat if. Didn't realise you could get the keys to that place! Take care buddy.
