Crowds lined the Bahrain coast yesterday to watch the world-famous Red Arrows who put on a dazzling acrobatic aerial display. Nine crack Royal Air Force (RAF) pilots put on a 22-minute performance above the Manama waterfront in BAE Systems' Hawk jets. it was led by Squadron Leader Dicky Patounas.
The UK's Red Arrows arrived in Bahrain as part of a tour of Europe, India and the Middle East. They created a special manoeuvre, which they called the Palm Tree, in honour of their visit to the Middle East.
I remember their last tour, which was in 2003. This time also it was superb... simply amazing. Me and my collegues were able to watch it clearly from our office.
The thunder sound when they fly past is something which i liked very much. Gives an impression that u r in a warfront.
And we realy enjoyed the show. So after watching their display i searched for red arrows and found their website. Their website address is http://www.raf.mod.uk/reds/
Indian Airforce too have an aerobatics team called "Suryakiran". I havent seen their display live. But i have seen some photos and vidoes of their performance. They are as good as Redarrows. Hope one day i can watch their show live. Below is a photo of their display, which shows Color of Indian Flag.
