The Red Arrows

Today the peace and tranquility of the North Coast was shattered by the roar of 9 Hawk T. Mk.1 jet planes screaming across the sky. The Red Arrows\ provided the finale for the fifth annual international air show hosted in Portrush in a spectacular fashion. Needless to say the entire coast was lined with cars and people wielding cameras, and I believe the coastline pretty much came to a stand still for the twenty minute show.

We hadn't really put a lot of effort into getting there on time, and so only managed to pull up on a kerb between Portstewart and Portrush, and therefore missed the centre of the action, but nevertheless it was a super viewing spot. Next year we will endevour to get to the West Bay area to get the full effect.
