Was anyone else listening to the Reds on the radio? I could have sworn I heard one of them say, "I'm sick of Eastbourne" at the end of their display :lol:

I was listening on the main frequency rather than their own but the last three days they have formed up out to sea and finished with a nice low 9 ship flypast from Beachy, which was a good photo opportunity, but today they just called complete and went. Maybe they were pushed for time?

Yes, this was on 243.450. There was a fair bit of chatter when they'd finished, something I've not heard them do at RIAT (although that might just be because they usually land after their display at RIAT)

Well, I'll just go against the line of thinking here and say I think Mr. Bacon's style was quite well-suited for a seaside airshow, trying to engage a crowd of non-enthusiasts, there only to see the BBMF (quite a few packed up around me after they had flown) or the Red Arrows (what an exodus yesterday!). And my word, I don't think anyone could have bettered his Disney-pitch, it really excited the kids around me, really nice to see them cheering 2 small aerobatics aircraft. After seeing the Lynx from a distance this afternoon, I think there are other Army Air Corps elements that require attention far more urgently.
