Swoosh

It was a lovely day here in England on Sunday . I sat in my garden with my newspaper when a loud roar overhead rendered the skies .

Those magnificent men in their flying machines so fast, were there 7 or 9? so fast so precise in their formation , awe inspiring , and so brave . It was a beautiful sight .

It was 12.30 just after mid day and I suddenly remembered there was an air display in a neighbouring village . it was cancelled last year because of bad weather.

Three cheers for these men who keep us safe if need be . It all happened so quick.

When I lived in Cyprus,Thursday was the day of air practice with helicopters. There are military bases in Cyprus . I would sit on my balcony watching the helicopters swooping and turning in the sky . Happy days for me.

The planes are quite a sight aren't they? Our local airport had an air show earlier this year, featuring the Canadian Snowbirds which fly in formation. So close together and so fast. Patricia
