Totally brilliant.. Left at 6am drove 90 miles, took a few wrong turns, arrived @ 8.01am. Everything was awesome, I have a couple of questions.. What was up with the Reds today? Do they change their display every year? Or was it the weather? It was crap when they flew.. I was looking forward to the heart? Also, After the czech republic little jet flew, after the Puma, I believe, something else went up, about 5.30ish? I was driving out by then, but I just wondered what it was? It was quite beautiful, and made a lovely sound, but it didn't seem to be on the schedule? I thought it was a static leaving at first, but he was having serious fun... What was it? Thanks for any help you can give!
I'm going to do Waddington every year now.. It was soo worth getting up @ 4am for, and I can't wait untill next year.
After the Czech ALCA, only helicopter shuttles were flying !
Ok, I have got totally mixed up then, there was a beautifally coloured little jet, that flew just before.. I swore I was taking note of the schedule.. But I have no idea what it was? It was painted so lovely, and sounded great too. I was out of earshot of the speakers, so didn't really hear anything. Thanks!
(can't think if it was before the Super Puma, or just after).. sorry!
Also, after the RAF Falcons, a great big aircraft came in, prop, not jet, I think I heard someone say they had dropped off the Falcons.... what was that? It was incredibly handsome, and huge! I got some grand shots of him coming in, but I don't remember seeng it in the air? I was taken back by the whole show, as I've said before, I'm an 'only Dux' girl (aircraft fanatic only rose in me 3 years ago) , yesterday shocked me to the core with it's brilliance, and, as said before, can't wait for next year
Well done to all inviolved...
(as a side note, I am not a photographer, and probs did everything wrong yesyterday, but I came home with 1878 photos, and that wasn't including the static) haha!
