Very nice tribute Frank! Is there a reason only 3 of them are trailing smoke?
Frank L Croston.: Thank-you Elizabeth, I think it's just part of the display, it depends what maneuver they are carrying out,
A fine tribute to a very brave man
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Bill, I was intending to post this shot this week,then due to the sad news, I thought it might make a small, but hopefully fitting tribute,to, as you say, a very brave man.

I don't know the back story, but this is an excellent photograph!
Frank L Croston.: Thank-you Mike, sadly, one of the Red arrows display team crashed at the weekend, killing the pilot, only after he had flown it away from nearby houses and people,when he could have ejected and saved himself, as Bill said a very brave man.

Great tribute Frank and to be able to fly it away to save others shows what a great pilot he was smile
Frank L Croston.: Thank-you Linda, yes indeed it does
A wonderful picture Frank. I was very sad to hear about the accident at the air show in the UK.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Frances, it is very sad.
A fine tribute Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thank-you Michael.
A very worthy tribute Frank, all pilots are brave in my book, but the risks these guys take is exceptional.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Brian, I can only agree with you. I think we take for granted what they do, and sometimes forget the risks involved, probably because they are so good.
Very sad event - it seems that he was a fine pilot and a fine human being.
Frank L Croston.: It seems so Tom.
