The Red Arrows

Even (arguably) the world's finest national aerobatic display team has not been immune from cutbacks in military expenditure. Their next aircraft might well be the new generation of Hawk trainers...the T2.

There are some national treasures that we have to hang onto. Red Arrows, Blue Angels are timeless PR and pride symbols of our nations, and should be preserved.
And once by God, I was a Marine!
—Actor Lee Marvin, circa, 1967, about serving in WW II

I'm lucky enough to live very close to the Red Arrows and see them all the time.

I have to watch every time and have nearly put my car into a hedge on more than one occasion!

A friends friend works there and develops tactics and manoeuvre's... very cool sounding job
