|With so many varied displays it was hard
to say which one stood out as the best on the day. For aerobatics the
Skybolt and Extra 300 spellbound the crowds. The awesome sight of Sally
B and the sight and sound of so many Merlin engines in the numerous
Spitfires and Mustangs gave the audience the feeling of the war years on
this 1940's airfield. Then there were the display teams no show is
complete these days without the Utterly Butterly Stearmans and then the
precision of the Yakovlevs in their Yak 50's &52. Finally the jets from
the RAF came a Hawk of 100 Sqn as previously mentioned a T33 and making
its airshow debut Hawker Hunter XE601 which demonstrated to the crowd
what a blue not Hunter sounds like.
All in all a great day and the oranisers
are now at work on the next event in 2007 watch this space.
