I thought pretty much all the displays were excellent, including Cartouche Dore - tight flying and some nice manouevres I haven't seen before (pac man!)... although I do think they should use smoke to enhance the movement in their display. I never tire of seeing Spitfires and Mustangs in the air. The "slide" manouevre by the Matadors was eye popping. The F16 was impressive as ever. Really liked the Tucano display. Cracking displays from everything else too.

However there seemed to be a few people showing a lack of basic aircraft knowledge - I was quite surprised as I expected people there to be enthusiasts I guess but clearly many were not!
In no way having a go btw :0) Just surprised me....
Not keen on 'Cartouche Bore', like watching several long repositions over Stansted with a couple of flypasts thrown in. F-16 majestic - why can't RAF use flares? Would add a bit of va va voom to tiffie. Liked the little jungmeister and the matadors a lot.
Wondered why FOD have to still pay 2 quid to tour the DAS collection? Great show in great weather, roll on Legends...

During Monday afternoon I even had the pleasure to an invitation to fly up to 7000ft in a photo-ship with an open door and a certain 47 flying on our side ( camera in hand )
