Since not everyone will always agree on awards that are given to certain displays, I thought I'd create some and see what is decided. I guess the easiest way to do it is to copy and paste the options below and then turn your winner to 'bold'. :smile:

Anyone who only went on either the Friday or Saturday would be stuffed when it comes to making the decision, though, as they wouldn't have got to see most of those displays.

By coincidence, that's exactly my opinion of Brexit and Trump... :biggrin:

In stature, grace and hue,
In shadowy silent distance grew the iceberg too....

It would have been lovelier if it had been more accessible ( not stuck inside a plastic tent with no public access ) and if they'd taken the cockpit covers off.

They did bring it out of that tent as soon as the weather allowed.

Typical -- it was in the tent with the covers on when I went to look at it not long after the gates opened & it was in the tent with the covers on when I went down there again after the flying display had finished. :sad:
