This afternoon a trio of warplanes (a bomber and 2 fighters, can't pretend
to know their types), made a fly past, presumably to celebrate the VE day
Pretty impressive sight, as they were flying very low, and in close
Part of me cannot help wondering, though, how sensible it is to make these
flights over densely populated urban areas. These are very old planes,
designed at a time when our technology was less advanced and safety
priorities were skewed by the necessities of war. Flying so close and low,
there can't be much time to react is anything goes wrong, and the
consequences of an accident could be catastrophic.
Am I way off the mark here?
