Red Arrows Olympic Opening Ceremony

Post by TB1 » Fri Jul 27, 2012 10:06 pm

So proud of the boys today. They have been flying all around the country today, the UK's beacon of patriotism in the air and makes me very proud to be British. And yes the boys did make my day, passing directly over my house at 500 feet 2 minutes after flying over East London at the Olympic Park. So proud to be British, so proud to have the RAF, so proud to have the Red Arrows.

One of the reasons I don't want Scotland to become independent ;)

THAT . . . should be done here! Goosebumps at the awesomeness. I wish I could see the Reds someday.

"Faster than Usain Bolt"

OK, that really made me giggle like a little girl there.

Congrats to the Red Arrows in their success of maintaining perfect formation during the whole flypast.

Faster than Usain Bolt is right! Spectacular Fly-by by the Red Arrows but it wouldn't have been the same without that beautiful sunset!

Yeah, The Red Arrows did a Great Job as Usually. It was Extremely Special For Me, Since The Arrows' Did a Little Display for The Villages Surrounding Lincoln. It Made Me Smile Quite a bit; Made me Proud to Be British.
