Going on how busy it gets, we arrived about 7:30am to get in early.
We entered the base after about 20 minutes, parked, and decided to have a look around the exhibits before it got too crowded.
It was only 8:30am, so it was nice to get a look around before it got too crowded
Airshows are a great way of recruiting new young men & women, not only into the Royal Air Force, but also the British Army, as they are usually present at these events. They have the usual trailers like this one below…
And just behind this were two giant cardboard cut-outs
Here is one of the world famous ‘Red Arrows’ aerobatic jets. This type of aircraft is the BAe ‘Hawk’ and is used for Fast Jet Training for newly qualified pilots who are going to fly fighters, like the ‘Tornado’.
Not all jobs are in the air, the RAF Bomb Disposal Team are an essential element of the air force.
After a Good look around, the airshow started as usual with the RAF Falcons Parachute Display Team.
I Have more photo’s on Google Plus
The Red Arrows like to show off a bit, below, when it comes to airshows. Very cool.
