We just had the Red Arrows going overhead. Presumably on their way to Lowestoft, judging by their course.

On the other hand, their schedule also notes 'Private Military Event', and I note from other news that the RAF is celebrating 40 years of the Harrier at RAF Wittering.

(Looks at course again.)

OK, they were probably on the run in for a flypast there, with Lowestoft following afterwards.

beeblebug was at Fairford for the last week with the air cadets helping with the Royal International Air Tattoo (http://www.airtattoo.com/airshow/AboutTheTattoo/09themes). He came home exhausted from the long days (up at 5.30am and the sleeping on army camp beds in leaky tents). The school agreed to him missing all but the last day of the last week of term - they viewed it as akin to work experience as he's making noises about joining the RAF. It has given him some more real experience of what it might be like living in that sort of environment.
