Red Arrows

Saw the red arrows for the first time for ages. It was really good as we were right at centre stage while the demonstration was going on.

The show was pretty spectacular, including many rolling games of aerial 'chicken.' However, the commentator was simply awful.

His patter was dull, filling us in on which university each pilot had been to and which types of Jet they'd begun training in.

This is information that could easily be omitted and we could have instead been entertained with tricks and tales of how the tricks were invented, together with stories about how dangerous the ridiculously risky maneuvers were... Posted by Picasa
