Wales Airshow 2017
Unfortunately our running a guesthouse means this busy now annual event stops me travelling to Gauntlet or Bovington :(
Business and family always send hobby stuff into the back seat.
Lovely weather this year and the beach was packed, good for the town, we were busy on Friday and Saturday too.
Spend both days on the beach with Debbie and our Alex watching the various flight displays, didn`t get a chance to walk around the ground display area to see the various vehicles and stuff, but it was nice to just be a couple (plus Alex) doing family stuff for a change.
Aside from the usual civilian display teams, stunt pilots and air-sea rescue shows there was of course some military interest -
Painted up as "RED 18” to represent Russian–Soviet pilot and cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin’s own plane
Bristol Blenheim Mk1
Never seen one fly before and it turns out this is the only one still flying!
Spitfire & Hurricane
Both a twin seater trainer and a single seater fighter-bomber
Arrows doing their thing
My darling and I
