The Red Arrows
To the very second, they fly in formation over palace balconies and seaside beaches, over crowds of millions and the sheep in farmers’ fields. With millions to entertain and with Concorde now grounded, Britain looks to the Royal Air Force’s ‘Red Arrows’ Aerobatic Team as one remaining symbol to represent a truly great British institution.
Richard Baker flew in formation with the team on six occasions, shooting from the cockpit canopy while often traveling at 450mph. His pictures centre mostly on his travels and friendships with the pilots and engineers of the 100-strong team who, without exception, shared their trust and energies during his 10 month reportage. His air show observations also make for surreal side-glances at those fans who follow the patriotic red, white and blue smoke.
The chance to exhibit Richards’ stunning photos is yours.
