Cant believe i picked to go on holiday near Torquay the week after. One ic the reasons being i guessed the traffic is pretty bad around there. May do it next year. Weather looks great as well. ( bangs head on desk )

Just been told by someone local to the area they are expecting chaos down there tomorrow due to the good forecast! Sadly I see the Vampires and BBMF Spitfire/Hurricane have been withdrawn - but the Blenheim added.

No probs. Seen a video on their website...red arrows seem miles away from the public. New rules i guess.

Everything seemed extremely distant. Easy to 'lose' some aircraft mid display.

Blenheim had a nice display though, and there was a beautiful head on split/break from the Dakota & Lancaster formation too.
