Norfolk's Airshows Warbird offering

Postby JonoUK on Sat 02 Sep 2017, 11:02 am

Hi All,

A small selection of the (mostly) warbird variety from the Norfolk airshows of Old Buckenham and Seething. As with the rest of the summer the weather was more than a little challenging at times but did offer some interesting backdrops. The two shows were quite the contrast with Old Buckenham going from strength to strength, Seething was the quietest I've seen it and were clearly suffering with the CAA price hikes amongst other logistical changes. The later only going ahead because of Bussey's sponsorship. When you consider the show is such great family entertainment at a low cost and is all about raising funds for charity its a shame to see the smaller shows struggling post shoreham. We'll see if it manages to go ahead next year, with a smaller number of images I thought I would try the larger image format this time around.

When was Seething? I'm about five miles from the airfield and didn't see or read any publicity for this show at all.

Hadn't it used to be a September event?

Seething was on Sunday 20 August, it looks like over the years its crept into August more and more perhaps to work around other events? the lack of marketing was notable and on the day you couldn't even purchase a programme. With such a small team to deal with the logistics and tight budget which doesn't allow for marketing it really did suffer this year. The main show director sounded very jaded when he was interviewed a few hours before the show, perhaps questioning whether it was all now worth it. I think I was only made aware of this years show by following the Wildcats schedule.
