Formation Flying

Formation Flying
Originally uploaded by Victor Keech.

A fortieth birthday treat provided the opportunity to fly wing to wing in a pair of aerobatic bi-planes. With loop the loops, barrel rolls and a dog fight often at no more than 6ft from wing tips, this really is something to behold. All Ably captained by ex-pilots from the 'Red Arrows', there's even a Piper Pacer that flies alongside and in formation for the wife and kids to see the action first hand and of course provide a fabulous photography platform. (I left Lisa in charge of the SLR for this one)
