Stunning photographs of the Red Arrows flying over Blackpool Tower during last weekend’s Air Show have been proudly shared by Arco Professional Safety Services,
Arco Professional Safety Services Training Instructor Russell Edwards, assisted by colleagues Jack Perry and Chris Fricker, climbed the iconic 518ft tall structure during the Blackpool Air Show at the weekend to get the shots.
As the use of drones is not permitted during air shows, Russell captured the awesome images using a 360 camera on a long carbon fibre pole – an amazing selfie-stick – that was tethered to him.
‘It was a fantastic opportunity to demonstrate our expertise at working at height. We got the best seats in the house to witness and document the Red Arrows flying so close to such an iconic landmark. It was an amazing and humbling experience,” said Russell. ‘Thank you Blackpool Tower, for helping to facilitate the climb and to the RAF Red Arrows for being part of such an amazing show.’

A record 200,000 people turned out over the two-day event to watch the Red Arrows, a Lancaster Bomber, a Spitfire fighter plane and a Chinook helicopter plus a host of airborne entertainment in the clear skies over the Blackpool seafront, which was bathed in the warmth of Summer sunshine.
