Advertising standards should really have an issue with that statement. OK the weather was bad but seriously, there was nothing here. a few armoured vehicles (i served in an armored regiment, so not that thrilling), about 8 or 9 police cars, a row of hgv's???
Through the drizzle I saw a chippy parked behind a barrier and a purple jetranger doing pleasure flights. We had of coirse missed the ridiculously early Red Arrows "flypast"!!! Then spent a miserable morning sat in the car waiting for nothing to happen. About 3 stalls. one of which was bbmf and one h4h.
Left after a couple of depressing frustrating hours, £25 lighter, very wet and decidedly X off. Even sat on the rapidly empying car park at 11.30 the official website was still proclaiming a full display proramme. An absolute and utter money grabbing disgrace.
