No problem

This show seems to get better year by year. Our town attracts an extra special amount of tourists on our Air Festival weekend. Even the locals decide to pop down. Definitely one our towns better ideas

The Weston Air Festival looks great, unlike our Bournemouth Air Festival. 10 years of the same old guff! Red Arrows and the Typhoon are the only crowd pullers - and there's no Typhoon this year, and the Reds are doing 3 out of the 4 days. I think this will be (or should be) one of the final years unless they improve it greatly!

Thanks for all info, def worth a look.

Ahhh, nothing says summer more than sunburn and a crick in the neck
