One of the advantages of living on an Island is that you always have family somewhere near the sea, which means you can visit them to watch an Airshow on a Bank Holiday Monday. I don't know what it is like where you live but in the UK you can normally guarantee that on a Bank Holiday - when most of the major Craft shows, Fayre's, Airshows take place - that it will rain!!! but sometimes we are pleasantly surprised and the day turns out to be glorious.
These pictures were taken a few years ago of The Red Arrows (Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team) at an Airshow near where we lived. The sky was a brilliant blue which gave full advantage to The Red Arrows to perform their routine and for us, the audience, to watch in amazement.
The Red Arrows are an elite aerobatic team and are always part of any 'fly overs' where Royalty is concerned.
