You have got to, just got to, somehow make the Red Arrows people aware of these images.
I'm sure they've got a drawer-full of very many good images that they use for promotional reasons, but ......! They're not going to have many of this quality in terms of artistry.
Stop changing the subject.The guys in the aircraft are the artistes
Here's the 'contact us' page from their website

WOW! Mike, these are thrilling! I can't wait to show my oldest son who has a very keen interest in aircraft!
I like reds 4 and reds 1 most. I did a lot of aerobatics when I was a kid in the air cadets, I was even taught to do barrel rolls and loops myself. I saw these at RAF Tagnmere around 1970, where they used live bombs to make the runway unuseable.
That was when I was as fit as a fiddle though. They are all great photo's showing great skill.
Great series Mike,
Did you catch them in Akrotiri (winter training), or is this from earlier in the year?
There're all brilliant but 4 is my favourite. Excellent - great work.
they are amazing!
We have seen these arrows photographs in all sorts of configurations but No 4 is very unusual and your framing is spot on
An excellent collection of images there, Mike can't fault any of them. Red 4 is my favourite, love the diagonal.
Your photos are awesome! It must have been so LOUD!
I saw the Blue Angels earlier this year in Hawaii, but they only have 6 jets. 9 just makes it that more spectacular, with the amount of smoke in the air.
Great sequence Mike and I do like the diagonal compositions in 3, 4 and 5 but #4 is a fantastic perspective. Well done.
