The Red Arrows at Rhyl Air Show on Sunday

During Sunday’s performance Red 6, squadron leader Gregor Ogston, had been the victim of a “bird strike” – where a bird had collided with the jet mid-air. The bird had struck the section of the £5m jet’s glass cockpit – just above where the pilot sits – at such force that the impact shattered the canopy, leaving it with a gaping hole and its pilot exposed to the elements. Red 6 was forced to break off from the rest of the team and return to Hawarden Airport the jet landed safely and the pilot was unhurt. News Report Here including one of my images

“Based on the stunning sunny Rhyl coast, Zip World Rhyl is home to Skyflyer, the world’s only sight-seeing experience of its kind, where you’ll enjoy panoramic views, hovering 140m – 400ft in the air on our balloon airship. Alongside Skyflyer, we have Big Red, a mini side-by-side zip lining adventure, perfect for families, friends and couples. Keep your feet firmly on the ground and enjoy a spot to eat at the 1891 restaurant and bar, located inside the Pavilion, where you can watch the adventure unfold. With nearby parking and stunning views of the North Wales coast, this is the perfect spot to lose a couple of hours”

BIG RED features two side-by-side lines, making it perfect for friends and family to race each other to the end. The zip wires are suspended 30 feet high, and are located parallel to the Skyflyer airship.
