Today, as part of the Cadet150 celebrations, there was a cadet march along The Mall at lunchtime, finished off with a flypast by the infamous Red Arrows.

Some lucky cadets also got to fly as passengers in the Red Arrows jets as well.

Some photos of the flypast as seen from my flat – click on photos for larger versions.

This is roughly what it would have looked like from The Mall.

    I was near temple and saw this display, very good it was as well, I love the red arrows, always have and now I am 51 and they still always thrill me with the flying skills. part of our Heritage, god bless them.

  2. The Red Arrows must be training out of RAF Wittering, or one of our other local bases, recently they have flow over our allotment a couple of times (Corby). Last night there was one group in a V, followed by a small formation + one rolling.
