No Fog !!!

Does anyone remember this post from last year where all planes were grounded due to fog?

Not this year ..... the 21st annual airshow started with a bang or should I say a roar..



We had sun, sun , sun and lots of blue skies.



How can you not be amazed by the Red Arrows?



Just watching these guys makes me want to go watch Top Gun !!!




The boys loved it even though there were so many people here, hundreds of thousands of people descended upon our little city to see all the aeroplanes performing.





The queues to get to sit in the red arrow were enormous so Milo was quite happy to sit in a helicopter instead.



And both boys liked the camouflage paint .





The airshow lasts for 2 days and we definately picked the better day to go as today it rained and was quite overcast.

Speaking of aeroplanes , do you remember Alice?



Well she's now winging her way across the ocean to California ... lucky girl.

And before I go I must give credit to hub as just about all of the airshow pics were taken by him -- and also say thank you for a lovely week from me and the boys .

Great photos Lisa! Our experience of the airshow was from the allotment - after a 40 minute drive to get the 2 miles there because of all the traffic! It would have been quicker to walk!!!

I do remember the foggy air show from last year!! This year looks much better. When my hubby was a Navy pilot, we lived near Pensacola FL, for four years. That's where the Blue Angels were based out of and they would practice every Wednesday. So it was just a normal thing to have those jets just buzz by while I was at the Commissary grocery shopping. I never got tired of it!! Now I want to watch Top Gun too... and find that old flight suit...hehe x
