RAF Falcons British Grand Prix 2016 Display

Silverstone has hosted plenty of impressive air displays as well as motor races, fittingly as it is a former RAF airbase, and the RAF Falcons British Grand Prix 2016 display required the parachutists to be a their excellent best as Friday’s variable weather conditions saw a strong wind requiring the jump from one side of the circuit to land in the centre. The track is not far from their Brize Norton base, and as the first Free Practice session of the weekend ended, the jump aircraft could be seen crossing the sky assessing the conditions. The jump was impressive as normal as the team did not allow the strong winds to get in their way of their aerial precision, as the crowd were talked through the display and what was going on.

I have also posted some photos from the other air displays of the weekend, the Eurofighter Typhoon on Saturday and the Red Arrows on Sunday, as well as the Formula One, GP2, and GP3 races. Meanwhile, here are a few photos of the RAF Falcons entertaining the crowd in impressive style.
