Planes ahoy!

It's already that time of year when the Red Bull Air Race comes to London. We knew it must be soon a few weeks ago when we got off the boat at the O2 to see several grandstands under construction.

As I was down on the Peninsula this morning I heard the sound of airplanes overhead. I looked up to see four of five planes doing acrobatics in the sky. Whizzing at some speed, barrel rolls and loop-the-loops. I guess it would be fun to go and watch and see it even closer up!

I could still hear them most of this afternoon, although from the house you can't actually see them anymore. It is like some aerial battle going on out there.
