Official opening - vapour trails from the Red Arrows. Queensferry Crossing (5)

Official opening - vapour trails from the Red Arrows.  Queensferry Crossing (5)
A bit of a dreich day weather-wise for the official opening, but it was a lot of fun being in the flotilla in our little wooden rowing skiff.

This photo was meant to show the Red Arrows fly-past just seconds after the Queen, up on the bridge, cut the ribbon and declared the bridge officially open. However, it's difficult to row and take photos at the same time, so it shows the vapour trails after the Red Arrows had been and gone!

Alass, Steve Bucknell, Pam J, Larry Drummond and 2 other people have particularly liked this photo

Despite your reservation about your timing I still feel this is a terrific shot and one of historical interest too! :)

Ah, heard about this bridge opening yesterday in the news. They saying it should be the scottish version of the golden gate bridge in a tourist viewpoint. Well...
But remarkable that they don´t expand the expected, calculated costs for construction...
