Air Race

Last year I missed out seeing the RedBull Air Race so this time I made sure that I booked in some tickets to see the fast flying air acrobatics over the Thames.

Catching up with good friends Rachael and Dan we ventured out to see the crazy pilots risking their lives for our entertainment. Of course the faster and crazier they are the more we, the crowd, roared. With pin point accuracy pilots are made to fly through an obstacle course with very tough criteria. When racing the clock, every second is critical so any penalties for not flying at the right angle, height or worse yet hitting a pylon is race-breaking. Each pilot has 2 chances to fly through the course and with only one test run its amazing how fast and precise they fly.

Highly recommended for those who like a bit of need for speed and a good day out :)
