Only decided to go Abingdon at the last second and I'm glad I did go!! Best displays of the day go to the Dutch F-16 and his 20ft hover to start his display (even if he did pull out of the first loop a little low
), the VC-10 second flypast- how I'm going to miss the ghostly howl of those RR Conways when the Vicky 10 is finally retired
, the DC-3 display and the RAF Tucano display- who seemed to be doing F-22 style pull ups into the vertical at various times, probably because of the wind.
Shame the JP and BBMF cancelled, however quite lucky a full flying display was offered despite the weather being far less than ideal. Well done on getting the UH-60 there (might be the only event to see one in Britain this year, unless RIAT manage to book one.)
Organisers should be proud of still putting on a near full display in atrocious conditions, I could really see Abingdon is definitely beginning to become more than the 'Air and Country Show!' Like I said to one of the marshallers (who, by the way, were all very lively and friendly) when I was leaving, Abingdon organiers did the best they could and it pulled off! I'll be definitely back next year!!
