Managed to get down to Avalon Airshow of Friday for a few hours, and I have to say that I was disappointed… disappointed because
- There were very few flying displays while I was there. Compared to last time, where the Thursday trade day was treated to an almost full show, the only aircraft I say flying before the gates were open to the public was a military Learjet.
- The static displays were poorly arranged, making taking photos of them without distracting rubbish cluttering the background of the image near impossible.
- The F-22 was here for the first time, but the USAF were unable to provide a demonstration/airshow qualified pilot.
Other than that, it was a good airshow. Tell you this much, I’ll not be attending the Friday trade day of the next Avalon Airshow.
