I guess there must be an airshow at Duxford.

At least, that's the only reason I can see for the Red Arrows doing a low level pass, complete with smoke trails, over our garden a moment ago.

EDIT: a check of the Duxford site doesn't list anything. On the other hand, the Red Arrows were just down in London an hour or so ago celebrating Brenda's 80th. Why they'd still be at low level 45 miles away, goodness knows. Maybe they're practising.

They often do formation passes over random places en route to/from their jobs. In autumn 2004, not long after I'd moved into this flat, they flew over Cambridge in formation, almost directly over me; I emailed their PR team (to say "ooh! shiny! you made my afternoon!") who confirmed that they were returning home after a display.
