An enjoyable day at Shoreham Airshow

24 Aug

Yesterday my mother and I spent the day at Shoreham Airshow , and had an absolutely marvellous day. The weather was almost perfect, the location was excellent and the flying was superb.

There was no family history involved, although Kate Humble’s test pilot grandfather did get a mention, but obviously there were a lot of historical aircraft (replica First World War fighters) in attendance as well as some more modern examples (the Eurofighter Typhoon).

My poor little camera wasn’t really up to the job of getting any photos, but I did manage to get one or two half decent shots of some of the aircraft, but they just wouldn’t keep still!

    Hi John, thats a nice pic of the Vulcan, and the Red Arrows… considering they were there for all of 30 seconds!

      Thanks dalyhistory, I was surprised they came out so good. I know what you mean about the Red Arrows, I’m glad I didn’t choose those 30 seconds to go to the toilet!
