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
