To start off with it was very hazy due to the high temperature which must have been pushing 30'c and looking into the sun, then Later in the day fog and low cloud, all credit to the pilots that day for flying in those conditions. Luckily i am not going to be carrying any equipment, so me and my dad could park and walk, although we are staying at a hotel
on the leas after the show so walking may not be an option if we are too far out.

I just would love to here other peoples thoughts on the show how hot it was etc.
Conditions looked difficult on the Planestv footage on their Airshows 99 dvd which is fascinating
to watch, and just how the pilots coped. I read somewhere on the internet that the pilots had to modify their displays
to cope with the conditions, which must have been marginal. There were similar conditions at the
Lowestoft Airshow in 2001 again it was a really hot day, I read a report from the show on airscene.

Regards

Eddie

A quick search at Weather Underground gave a max temp at Gatwick of 27°C on 5th September 1999.
I don't know if that helps.
