The airshow had started to seem a bit 'routine' to me, but when the Thunderbirds were listed as flying, I decided to visit on the Sunday. There has been quite a bit of angry comment about the traffic management this year by some, but I had no problems, leaving Stoke on Trent just after 6am and parking at Waddington just after 8am.
I didn't stop for the whole day - I left at about 3:30 pm as I wanted to get home in a reasonable time (and was quite tired from a late night at Rock on the Rocks - I must be getting old!).
The Thunderbirds show was very good from start to finish - the groundcrew were great. The time they all spent with the crowd afterwards was really appreciated.
This year, I have hosted my photos on 2 Facebook public albums. I also took a few short video clips which I have uploaded to Vimeo. You can access all from the links below.
