Red Arrows through the Ogwen Valley, 5th August 2017

Post by JackyRIATWilson »

Evening all,

Not last week but the week before myself and Tom went halfway up Tryfan, a mountain famed for being a Grade 1 scramble, in the hope of catching the Red Arrows transiting from Bournemouth to Aldergrove via Brecon and the Ogwen Valley. Having never caught a Red Arrow low level, we weren't about to pass an opportunity to capture Hawk T.1A jets low level.

And right on cue, at 12:38, the 9 jets came around the corner. What a sight, something I will never forget.

Thanks for looking guys,

Jack.
