Red Arrows Aerobatic Display Team

Red Arrows and colourful smoke trails

Hurray for the Red Arrows! I visited the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta earlier this month hoping to shoot a carnival of airborne colour. The mass launch of hot air balloons was cancelled due to (not-so) high winds but the thousands of people gathered at Ashton Court were treated to a spectacular display by the RAF’s Red Arrows Team. Tragically, just one week later, a Red Arrows pilot died when his Hawk T1 jet crashed following an appearance at the Bournemouth Air Festival.
