THE RED ARROWS








So the RAF's display team, the Red Arrows were about town yesterday....and they were awesome!! I don't know what it is about them...the speed, the flair or that sound...you know, the one of a jet engine screaming at 500mph, 50ft above your head...okay, maybe you don't, but it gets me buzzing every year. A number of people who I grew up with and went to school with had fathers who were Red Arrows, so it takes me back to being a small kid. Loads of people turned up and the beaches were rammed about 150m each side of Bournemouth Pier with countless more up on the cliff tops so I guess I'm not the only one who gets excited when they take to the skies.

"There they are!!"
...and then there was the pointing and cries of "There they are!!" as the the first few people spot them, red, white and blue smoke trail blazing behind them as they blast along the seafront and soar skywards.
