9th July at Farnborough. Great display sadly cut short by a birdstrike on Red 7! Landed safely, and the remaining 8 Hawks returned to Fairford. This was the second birdstrike the Reds have suffered in a week, after Red 6 was hit on the nose last weekend. This was taken just before the incident happened, the dmage done to the nose just in front of the windscreen. Red7 landed safely and the pilot returned to his teammates along with Red10 by helicopter an hour or so later.
