  • And now for something different

    The Red Arrows over New York. Some nice shots published by the BBC. Not quite sure what exactly the purpose of the tour is - promoting Britain sounds very vague - probably one of Boris's ideas?

      A group of twenty-four birds, made up of USN Blue Angels, USAF Thunderbirds, RCAF Snowbirds, and RAF Red Arrows, flew south along the Hudson towards Liberty Island, 'bout 1100 hrs EDT, if I recall correctly. If I'd have remembered, I could have sauntered just a few feet across our office here and seen it right out of our window.

          I doubt if Boris had anything to do with it. Schedules are normally set up well in advance.

            AKA , RCAF snowbirds take off. Defective snowbirds land or crash. wreckers called in.
            remaining snowbirds old Tudors on afterburners, flat out
            other air forces Drop flaps and Lower landing gear to , err, 'keep pace.'

            all craft pass by slick-meisters window in formation.
            controllers hear
            "aww, %^$#, he's buried deep in work.'

            All craft return to base More RCAF Tudors collapse gear on landing.
            Wreckers called in.....

              Schedules for the Blue Angels are set nearly in year in advance, so I'm guessing that Johnson had nothing to do with yesterday's flyby.
