A grand day out with the Red Arrows

Red arrowIt’s rare that we escape from the office for a day these days but a few of us made an exception when we were invited by one of our long-term suppliers and friend to visit the home of the Red Arrows (who happen to be one of ‘his’ clients). Our day with the Red Arrows included our own private display, lunch and debriefing with the pilots, a real treat ‘and’ a massive eye opener, what a fantastically dedicated and talented team! We were all-the-more saddened to hear a couple of months later (20.08.11) that one of the Red Arrows crashed following a display at the Bournemouth Air Display, killing its pilot Flt Lt Egging (Red 4). Our thoughts are with his family and colleagues.
