Photos from our bike ride down to watch the Airshow today. Sorry for the quality, my Huawei P30 lite has a pretty good camera but it’s still just a phone camera.
Highlight for me was seeing the Red Arrows and discovering they’re still as awesome as I remember from when I was a kid! They’re on a tour going across North America at the moment and I’d highly recommend if they’re in your neighborhood.
They had their flight engineers wandering through the crowd chatting with kids, answering questions and signing the odd autograph which was cool, especially as we were just hanging out in the park not in the paid exhibition section.
The search and rescue demo is always entertaining; toss a couple of rescue swimmers out of a helicopter then circle round and fish them out again.(fireboat in the background)
The Yak 50 was a surprisingly big hit with the kids, but I guess this year is the first time we’ve got close enough to really see the propeller aircraft.

We missed the A10 because pizza was more of a priority but overall the kids lasted though the whole show, some light rain and a bike ride to and fro. Pretty great afternoon all told.
