First time for me at Dunsfold wings and wheels. Weather was Shocking with a cloud base of 1000ft and a few aircraft cancelled but What made it worth going was the Arrival of the 11 Reds direct from Polland (Rodom sadly). Picture quality is rubbish as light was very bad and had thought i wasnt going to take any pics and just watch for a change, quickly pulled out the camrea for this. (on auto on my point and shoot,excuses excueses,haha)

Reds did their flat display which i have'nt seen for years plus the Vulcan made an appreance eventually, after getting lost on the way due to the weather. Well done to the team for making it.

Some of you Scampton locals may get overwellmed by random reds formations but this is a first for me. Clap

Nice one Clap , I do like the way people in the crowd always spontaneously wave at the reds (I do it too) .

Is there any reason why reds 2,3,4and 5 do not have thier light on?

Laughing Laughing Laughing they all did but it was just the angle i think. Plus its with my point and shoot on auto mode and then photobucketed. Glad you like it.


EDIT; on second thoughts, just looked at the orignal and they dont have them on your right. Weather was really rubbish so may have turned them off for a better visual aid for Red lead to see outer reds whilst in transit from Polland. This was thier arrival and they did the usual break off and landed refueled then displayed. Anyone got any ideas on it?

What time did they display? Just interested as they shot over my girlfriends parents house in Tenterden Kent around 4ish pretty low too. Was gutted as all my camera gear was in the car next to me :( I wonder where they were going.

Out of curiosity... they wouldnt have transited all the way in that formation would they? I would have thought in two fours and a three or somesuch? Sorry if its a silly question but it
just occured to me
