nine different combinations to be practised
- well, perhaps 8? There is always a deputy lead - in my time I was cleared to lead 8 down to 500', but I don't think I would EVER have dreamt of putting on any sort of display! I don't expect I would have had more than a couple still with me after a couple of manoeuvres More a 'get-you-home' function.

In your example, it is down to the team/command structure to handle that decision 'on the day'.

Flash of ‘fire’ on doomed Red Arrow | The Sun |News
fing people ought to be castrated!

We ought to stop calling them Journalists:


noun /ˈjərnlˌizəm/ 

The activity or profession of writing for newspapers or magazines or of broadcasting news on radio or television

and go back to calling them reporters, then they might just report instead of attempting to sensationalise:


noun /'rɪˈpɔːtə'

A person who reports, esp one employed to gather news for a newspaper, news agency, or broadcasting organization

I thought that all new flying display routines had to be authorised by the Group AOC before they could go ahead...or have the rules changed?
