They Also Serve Who Stand and Wait.
They Also Serve Who Stand and Wait.
A member of the RAF Falcons Parachute Display Team, having monitored the landing area at the RAF St Athan 75th Anniversary celebration display, ignites a smoke flare so that the team, who are now in a circuit 12,000 ft above, can ascertain wind conditions. Unlike the superb Red Arrows team the Falcons are entirely dependent on mastering the vagaries of air currents, wind strength and direction, and their canopies to ensure a good display and safe landing.
