A tribute to the groundcrew, without these men and woman the whole show would not be possible. Here you can see them at work during some practice displays at Royal Air Force base Akrotiri at Cyprus.

Special thanks must go to : SAC Colin Searle & CLP Rich Penney, who helped me to get all the names.
