Queen star Brian May was riding high on Thursday (16Jun11) after taking a ride with the famous Red Arrows formation flying team.
The guitarist met with pilots and ground crew of the Royal Air Force (Raf) Aerobatic Team before flying a training sortie with Red 7 Flight Lieutenant Ben Plan.
May's visit to the air station in Scampton, England comes ahead of his performance on 16 July (11) at a special Raf concert.
The Anthems In The Park gig will be held in aid of the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund, a charity which provides financial and emotional support to Raf personnel.
