Skywatch (3)

Welcome to Skywatch (3)- you happy skywatchers.


My SW photos come from Heckington Show this week.








The RED DEVILS squad free fall parachute down to the main arena.


Here they are as they jump from the plane, and then parachute down with flares and banners.


3 of the RED DEVILS join together then split, such a fantastic sight and photo oppotunity.





I hope you all will enjoy yourselves this week at SW and hope you all around the world have a happy weekend. (imac)









HAPPY SKY WATCHING.

Yes, such a wonderful opportunity to gather SWF images, Stewart. Isn't it amazing how many things we now notice going on in the sky above us. I have to stop along my walks all the time unless I would stumble from not looking where I am going. Great story these images tell ...
