yup, I went, my little lad loved it!

ETA: another gateshead based web designer eh? well, small world

Went to Oliver Henderson Park at Leam Lane Gateshead and wasn`t that impressed. Will try Saltwell Park next year.

we were going to go, glad we didnt by the sounds of things - plus the weather was hopeless!!

Never been to any over Gateshead way. I usually go to the one at Broadway in Gosforth. Didn't go this year though 'cos I fell asleep on my mum's sofa:oops:

I went to Walker Park, was good, mare getting Parked at saltwell park. I used to love that big aeroplane there

big aeroplane in saltwell park? have I missed something :?

I thought it was quite a good display really, not too many chavs about either. Parking isnt that easy granted, but I managed to get a space a short walk away.

You don't remember the big aeroplane? It was on the big grassy eara of the park, opposite side to where all the food trucks were tonight. It was a full sized aeroplane where you could go in, have a look at the cockpit and then to get out, you slid down the emergency inflatable slide used for when you crash in the ocean. They got rid of it about 15 years ago though. Maybe earlier.

There's even a facebook group about it here> ]http//ww…php

I was gutted when they got rid of it

Ahhh, see, thats why I don't remember it, I lived in Washington back then! I was worried about myself for a minute there, I go to the park all the time with my little boy and felt sure I would have noticed an aeroplane! :-D
