The Fowey Royal Regatta in Cornwall at Fowey features and highlights with the Red Arrows nearly every year. Being a local to the area it is normally an annual event where we make the trip down to the outskirts of Fowey to watch the Red Arrows. I have been meaning to blog these pictures from the 2012 Fowey Regatta Red Arrows for a while and have finally got around to editing a few frames and sharing them with you here.
Last years Fowey Regatta Red Arrows display was slightly different to previous years. Firstly because of all the incidents that the Red Arrows display team had publicly had during the 2012 season and the lead up to the 2012 season. Due to these unfortunate accidents and deaths the normal 9 strong display team was reduced to only 7 and with bad weather, low cloud cover and a murky day, it was not the best display I had ever seen, none the less it was a good afternoon/evening out.
From a child I have seen the display nearly every year and have been lucky enough to see them up close and personal during other air shows such as Yeovil and Culdrose in Heslton, Cornwall. My fondness of aircraft can also be attributed to my early life Work Experience at RNAS Culdrose in Helston some years ago now, and if asked what I would do other than photography then I will normally respond with my tale about how I accidentally ended up being a photographer and put my academic life away which was, at the time of going to college, focused on becoming a pilot.
Enough about me and time to enjoy a few pictures of these artists of the sky. For more information on the Red Arrows and the Fowey Royal Regatta please see these links.
