I acknowledge slightly blurred, but this is microseconds after the Red Arrows went “Smoke-On” for their display over HMS Prince of Wales in Portsmouth Harbour. The Display was to mark a political event on board the carrier; The Pacific Future Forum.
The display was held under a low cloud base, 1200 feet. The Red Arrows have a low level display to take account of low cloud. Whilst it may not be as impressive as their normal high level display, it is still very good.
We were able to position ourselves a good way along the Haslar Marina Pier Wall, directly under the flight path for some of the passes.
It’s been a while since we last saw them perform. An absolute delight. We are both very pleased that we took the walk into town.
The cloud trail from their final pass a memory of a few exciting moments in the skies over Portsmouth.
