Some years ago one of the Red Arrows decided to try some low flying through this valley. Unfortunately he had not seen the 400KV grid lines that cross the valley on his map and hit them. His passenger ejected and he continued to land at Dalcross with a bit of his wing missing. The 400KV line was cut and landed on the 33KV line below. This also blew up the Post Office cable that runs up the side of the track and set the hill side on fire.
