I could see there were official looking bods and cameras on this rooftop, I didn’t know Maurice was up there!

Thanks for that link bini-lizard, brilliant. My dad was in the R.A.F. In WW 11, lovely to see flt Lt. Mounsford being honoured. The 100 was the ( expected) icing on the cake.

All I can think of is that I use the built into HTML 5 video player. Which web browser do you use? Is your web browser up to date?

I watched them land on Tuesday, then saw the display from the cliffs at Calan porter, still get a thrill even after watching them for many years, indeed some of the more mature will remember the aircraft I first saw the arrows fly the Gnat, very apt as my good lady is still smarting from their attack.(not the arrows, the gnats)

We were relaxing at our Villaplus villa and heard the sound of the Red Arrows and thought wow! As they flew past the Son Bou Beach. Amazing even though it was a little bit cloudy. They flew low. :grin:
