Red Arrows training at RAF Scampton

Having the Red Arrows based literally on our doorstep is fantastic. We spent an afternoon at RAF Scampton watching them practice.  They had just 5 planes up, but some had 2 pilots in. Obviously the new guys in training.  They have 3 new pilots each year and they have the whole display to learn from scratch. It will be good to watch them progress as the weeks go on until next spring when we can watch them practice their full displays. It's something that we have never been able to do before as they practice Monday to Friday, but now we are in our retirement it's a trip we will make weekly !

and a couple of other planes dropped in..........
I think our retirement is going to be very enjoyable indeed !
