Default AIR SHOW +SURPRISE GUEST

have just returned from a day at Clacton to watch the airshow and was completely blown away by the Red Arrows. This is only the second time i have seen them and i have to say these guys are brilliant, it brings you out in goose bumbs watching their display. if you get the chance to see them , take it. you wont be disappointed. the highlight of the day was a simply awesome display involving the Typhoon. The pilot was doing stuff i didn't know was possible in a jet fighter.if you got involved in a dog fight with one of these i guarantee the other plane would be toast. a surprise guest landed on the pier and i managed to get a photo without the photo-detector going off, i think Virgil was in the line for 4 doughnuts for 1.80, or he might have been after a "kiss me quick " hat.
cheers Paul

Yes, but what in the world is Winnie the Pooh doing on Maximillian's shoulder?

The real tragedy here is that that TB2 looks way better than another one we could mention. Sounds like a great air show too.

I wonder how it would fare (or is faring) at Gunsmoke...? My money would still be on the mighty F-16 Falcon.
