Oh yes, that is pretty pathetic.

The comet Racer put in a practice early in the morning before the flying display started, very nice. Appreciate a lot of the audience would have missed this.

I did see that, but didn't take any photo's (the light wasn't that good at the time) expecting to see her later in the afternoon. The engines sounded really sweet!

My biggest gripe about the commentator was that he seemed to have no idea of what was taking off next. With aircraft taking off from the far right hand end the only warning to prepare for a photo was as the aircraft passed by, as 9 times out of 10 the commentator was waffelling on about buying tickets for next months show. The man is sitting next to the control tower the least they could do is tell whats the next item cleared to take off.
