Fantastic.

Image

It's been a long time since I went to and airshow, so I have nothing to campare it to, but this one was fantastic.

The 200 mile, 4 hour round trip was worth it.

Lots of photos to sort through (about 700) and lots of sleep to be caught up on (I was out in Wales with the BCCC yesterday).

Maybe a few more photos tomorrow.

Cheers all

I liked the story of that Meteor, it was the one on show for years at the entrance to RAF Woodvale. I always remember it as we passed on days out to Southport.
It was taken away and restored and what a job 8)

You've got some nice family snaps there Ste and you were better able to capture the Red Arrows smoke (I would of had to changed lenses).

Your picture of the Vulcan is a little dark - a quick play in Photoshop and I managed to pull out some colour:

Also took this on my walk-around:
