The skies over Lough Foyle were a trifle noisy this pm. Nine bally Hawk aircraft were flying up and down and up and over for the delectation of the assembled masses on Benone beach. Nothing like a bit of free entertainment to get the crowds out.
These Red Arrow chappies, (I don't think that there is currently a chapess among their number), must have steady hands and nerves of steel. Definitely not a job for someone suffering a bout of delerium tremens. I suspect that as with motor sports there are some devotees of air displays who are drawn by the very real danger and the macabre excitement of the possibility of a crash. Thankfully they were to be disappointed.
