I went to the Airshow today and thought it was very well organised, Clactons Airshow could learn a lot from it,for £3 inc a programme what a bargain day out although there were too many prop planes for my taste.
well Clacton dont go for the wanting to "squeeze this money out of visitors" approach
so work with considerably less budget, though they do always get sponsorship for the displays that they do book, Lowestoft favours the donations approach as it funds their charity side stuff, so that aspect aside,since its something Lowestoft moans about every year, I was impressed they had some volunteers at Norwich station selling the programmes to people queuing for the train to lowestoft,which meant you could sticker up and just waltz pass the massed ranks checkpoint and no-one dared shake a bucket towards you.
would have been nice to known the Dakota was going to pop up last thing on Saturday, as loads of people had left or packed up as soon as the Red Arrows finished so I dont think I missed hearing it was coming, as youd expect the BBMF had phoned ahead in advance, and minus several brownie points for letting someone fly some kind of kite down on the beach during the display.
something festival director Paul Bayfield said to local BBC in an interview insisting more people should donate money.
