one of the best ones for a long time. big thanks to everyone involved in organising the event.
Thoughts on static. A bit spread out but the over zealous fencing of the wedgetail, I know the reasons behind it so just having it there was a bonus.
Thoughts on flying. Why on earth did they have the Typhoon on so early i missed it because i went for a walk. Bugger!!! It was great to see a display by the Sentry which proved quite maneuverable and it is the first time i have seen one of them display albeit a nato one since mildenhall in 1989. There was a big v shaped gap in the display but that couldnt be helped due to events out of waddingtons control. I was hoping for big things for the Saudi Hawks but was not impressed. The Black Eagles were an unknown quantity and did not know what to expect and due to this when they displayed I was extremely impressed by their display and hope that they come back soon, for a display team to eclipse even the Frecci is amazing but they did.
one massive complaint is, food. as we had done Legends the day before we didnt take food with us, so with it being in Lincolnshire Waddington usually had local fayre as in Lincolnshire sausage sandwiches. but no it was the rip off dog burger merchants. if no one got food poisonning from the stand next to the ViP tent i would be very surprised, they were filthy and the chicken they used in their kebabs was placed next to the griddle which is a recipe for Salmonella! so went to another place but that wasnt much better.
food quality and price has to improve. but apart from that it was a very enjoyable day and will be back next year as normal.... with a packed lunch
