Skywatch Friday (Waddington Airshow)

In this photo Frecce Tricolori, an Italian display team, are trying to create the world's longest Italian flag (is that a Guinness World Records category?). The team were very entertaining - as well as their airborne antics, the Italian commentator kept the audience fully involved: "Another incredible manouevre" and "Get your cameras ready ... 3 ... 2 ... 1"). Well worth seeing ... and hearing if you get the chance.

  1. I've enjoyed all your images of the Waddington Airshow, especially the 'heart'.. what can I say, I'm a romantic haha!
    p.s I'm not sure if you get a lot of spam but most people have removed the complicated verification thing from the comments bit,your pictures are so good I think you will have a lot more people visit, so many people will just not leave a comment when they have to figure out this new verification code.

    1. Thanks for your comment and I appreciate your advice on the verification code which I've now removed. It was at the default setting and I've never given it a second thought since I set up the blog. As blog owner you never see it yourself so it's easy to forget that others have to negotiate it.
