Is is a bird, is it Superman? No it’s an Aeroplane!

Back to work this week from a lovely weekend away almost killed me!! Although I will get used to the early starts and long days in the office. I am just not looking forward to the dark mornings and cold days of Autumn/Winter.

This weekend is the Southport Airshow and for the past two years David and I have been attending. This year we will be there on the Saturday as I love seeing the Red Arrows and can’t wait to see the Typhoon again (it was rather thrilling last year!) and the return of my favourite plane of all, Miss Demeanour! Although it looks like the Tornadoes won’t be there this year which is a shame. I will try and get better footage than I did last year as I had the wrong setting on my camera!

Better Late than Never!

Below, footage of the Southport Air-show that David and I went to this September. It was a lovely sunny Sunday and that was what caused the crowds to swell. I tried to get some good footage, hope the video is decent enough!

I loved the Red Arrow’s display, this year seemed better than ever! I was also thrilled to the bones with the Eurofighter (Typhoon), the floor vibrated as it flew past! 😀 I just wish I had footage of the Tornadoes! I knew they would have been there, but I let David take me home!

Hope you enjoy!
