Red Arrows over South Shields

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 2 October 2014 in Transportation and Portfolio.

That's it, caught them as they flew over the finish line of the Great North Run in South Shields earlier in September this year. As soon as I fired these few shots off I lost all interest in the rest of the day and headed back off for home, the race had not yet started and the Red Arrows were heading for Newcastle and the Tyne Bridge to great the 50000 + runners!

Oh well, I could only hope that my enthusiasm would soon return.
