They're going down. Bit of critisism towards UK or to the Queen? :)

Amazing shot - I think they may be just about to loop the loop (or whatever it's called!)

I think its a great shot, I remember seeing the red arrows fly over West London (Hayes) during the Queens Jubilee a few years back - its quite breath taking!

The poor woman deserves a stellar birthday celebration. She's borne so much adversity with great aplomb. I wonder what Phillip is getting her?

I wonder if these are the same guys who flew over Ramsey during the TT. Magnificent images. I almost posted mine but had to use them for something else.

Very cool post. Terific shot of the jets in formation. Dramatic. (Do you think the Queen looked out as they roared overhead??)

Now that is an amazing SWF shot! Great capture. We need them to do a fly over on our 4th of July! I bet it was loud too. Your photos of London are delightful! Thanks for visiting my SWF post.

Wonderfully colourful shot. I do love the Red Arrows.

Did you see the Nimrod go over? It came from here. It kept my husband at work that day!
