What a fine effort this air show was. It cannot be easy to coordinate acts from three airports(Hawarden,Blackpool and Liverpool) together with acts launched from the beach itself. There was barely a gap between acts....something that could not be said of RIAT this year by all accounts. Admittedly,I didn't attend Fairford this year....only the third Air Tattoo I've missed since my first in 1974. RIAT looks to have become tired and,personally,is struggling to justify the effort and expense.
