Southport airshow
Started by: truckerdave (2337)   Report abuse
The wife and me went on the bike to Southport airshow yesterday, got there at noon, the show started at 12;45, nice variation of aircraft from stunt planes to BBMF lancaster and Spitfire, Vulcan bomber turned up and gave a nice showing,
Two Tornado's gave a brill display of their tactics and manouverability with low level passes with wings set back, pure awesome sight,

The P51 mustang put on a good show, this aircraft actually still has the bullet hole repairs from being straffed by an ME262 in ww2,
the red arrows finished the show off at 5;15
So glad we went on bike, the traffic was horendous

Went on the train, it was packed, for a while I thought I was in India they were poppin out of the windows.
Good show though, the Arrers did half an hour, with all these cutbacks I thought we would just get a 'quickie'.
