    Default For Kate

    Following on from my previous thread about the Red Arrows , we've just returned from a display by the Patrouille de France. Perhaps you've heard of them, Kate, and may even have seen them perform. They are only just starting to do shows outside of France, so we're honoured to have a visit from them.

    Unfortunately the weather was overcast as we're currently on the edge of a tropical storm, but the occasion still brought hundreds of people to watch. Must say I didn't think they were as show-stopping as the Red Arrows and seemed to perform at a slower pace, but it was still good entertainment. I'll be able to compare them anyway in just over 2 weeks as the Red Arrows should be here again for our National Day.

    Bleu, blanc and rouge, the colours that unite many flags around the globe! Thankyou for the pics, there was absolutely nothing on the News about this, usually it is just the 14th July over Paris.

    Proof (if we need it) that this forum is international.

    Good shots, MB, despite the clouds. I'm generally not a military booster, and am a fan of fuel conservation, but I do love a good display of precision flying.
