Perhaps they could arrange the night display for tomorrow.I know at other airshows this year where the weather has been pants they have managed to.I am not going this year but it would be a shame not to see the Typhoon with its afterburners on at night.it really is spectacular.

Don't bother with Blackpool Radar - it doesn't exist , no equipment since re-opening Dec 2014 :sad:

Go by train? My wife is telling me that the Manchester to Southport trains are cancelled due to signalling fault. Brilliant. I think there are alternatives but today of all days......

Liverpool then MerseyRail to Southport.
The train service from Liverpool to Southport usually runs at 1 every 7 minutes on Airshow days

Argh timing! I thought Southport station was quiet when I came through this morning.

Well there is still crowd line space here. Beach is firmer than I expected too, and there's even some blue sky :shock: :cool:

Shame a beluga just left Chester, might have been a nice flyby if the organizers could have wangled it.

RAF C-130J heading north quite close at warrington at the minute.
Again........ Might have been?

This.

I can get a train to Southport via Manchester from a station within walking distance of my house, but i'd always much rather drive to one of the Liverpool stations and use the Merseyrail services than face well over an hour on a train packed like cattle.

Was a great show today, although the Bronco, Mig, Vampires & BBMF Fighters didn't make it.

Really enjoyed today's show. It was a shame that the bronco,mig and vampire's all got caught up in bad weather else where but I most applaud the southport organisers who were quick thinking enough to bring back the blades and add an extra wildcat display to plug the gaps.

Glad I stayed at home, although probably wouldn't have been able to get there anyway because of the signalling issues out of Manchester this morning.

Also forgot to mention the Autogyro didn't display.

I saw something about the signalling issues earlier and also a few people mentioned it while on the beach.

show was ok today, took my mum to her first airshow since 1985. She was so dissapointed there wasnt a lot of fast jets. For me it was worth it just to see the Lancaster once again. I've missed it.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Airshow at Southport today. Even with the missing display items, it was an excellent Airshow in my opinion ! I was so glad the weather improved, for the Red Arrows, who put on their full display, which was excellent and exemplary as always. I enjoyed the warbirds the most, especially the B25 Mitchell "Sarinah" from Holland, a really gracefull display accompanied by the awesome sound of it's radial engines it looked fantastic in the excellent light. Also I was really pleased to see Peter Teichmans P-51 Mustang and Curtiss P-40 Kittyhawk, which opened the Airshow both displays were excellent and graceful and I love the whistle from the Mustang. And he seemed to display them alot closer than people have said he has, at other venues this year. I really enjoyed the other displays too from Team Raven and the Blades. And the RNHF Swordfish flying in formation with the two Blackcat Lynx Helicopters, was another highlight for me. The overall highlight for me was the last item, the BBMF Lancaster even without the BBMF Fighters. I have not seen it display since Southport Airshow in 2014 with the Canadian Lancaster "Vera". So it's solo display was extra special for me, I had goosebumps all over ! Hopefully the Two Norwegian Vampires and Mig-15 can make it to Southport to display tomorrow. As they were weathered in at Duxford Airfield today. And the BBMF Fighters were also unable to get airborne form RAF Coningsby, due to the weather in the East of the Country. Luckily the BBMF Lancaster was operating from Southampton Airport (Eastleigh) and was able to avoid the Bad weather in the East, and fly up the West of the Country, where the weather was much better. I really hope the BBMF Fighters join her tomorrow ! The Autogyro is only on tomorrow, also does anyone know why the Bronco and Sioux Helicopter, didn't display today ? I am so looking forwards to tomorrows display. Especially as the weather is forecast to be good again :smile: :smile:

What other fast jets was she expecting to see exactly?

I too missed the Lanc although we didn't even get a pass with the bomb doors open

Does anyone know whether there's anything else other than the Typhoon using Liverpool today for the show? Most seemed to be at Woodvale or flew in.
