We left home yesterday to travel to Waddington arriving in the queue at 08:15. We finally parked around 10:05 - not too bad as it happens as we only queued for the last mile or so. The temperature was around 27C, the sky was relatively clear but bright so most of our photographs didn't come out very well.
My all time favourite aircraft is the Lancaster bomber. Again our photograph's didn't come out too well. It did its usually stately display, at times accompanied by the other fantastic planes, the Hurricane and Spitfire.The markings for this year were different to these but I had to go here
on Wikipedia, to find a decent picture
Our second favourite plane, which we support, was the Avro Vulcan. When it takes off, the noise it makes is truly awesome.
Finally, the Red Arrows - did get some of our own pictures for these
We probably shan't go again now for a few years. Off to do some early morning gardening before settling down to watch Andy this after.
Andy, I know you won't ever have seen my blog but I, for one, am very proud of you, regardless of whether you win this afternoon or not. I get so fed up of the media putting so much pressure on you. Today, one such headline read "Come on Andy, make us proud".
Such a comment insinuates that we will only be proud of you if you win. To that, I say 'tosh'!
