Red Arrows pass under a rainbow, Sunderland Air Show 2007

Sunderland International Air Show 2007

A final look at the Sunderland International Air Show 2007 sees the RAF’s Red Arrow display team passing under a rainbow after a quick shower. From our perch on top of the cliffs at Whitburn, South Tyneside, we saw what many people agreed was the largest rainbow for many years in these parts. It is estimated that a million spectators watched the air show over it’s two days.

  1. Now that is way cool. You were obviously ready for this shot – fast shutter speed, great color saturation. I wonder if you shot this off a tripod or handheld. Is that a North Sea tanker or a ferry in the center distance?

  2. Most impressive – perfect timing. They must have been moving fast and you have frozen the moment perfectly. I hope you had a wish on the rainbow.

  9. Fantastic shot! I’ve never seen planes flying over a rainbow. Do you think they looked down and saw the pot of gold?
