Local Air Show

For the first time since I left the RAF I would like to go back.

According to a local report

http://www.thecourier.co.uk/News/Fife/article/24843/organisers-promise-leuchars-airshow-will-be-typhoon-tastic.html

" aircraft from one, two, three, four, five and six squadrons line up on the Tarmac." at Leauchars this weekend.

Certainly not something I saw in the whole of my career, and I should think pretty much a one-off.

Excellent.

Very lucky with the weather, dull and overcast (again!) on Sunday.

Not yet apparent if there is to be one next year.

Everybody might have to go to Marham, which is probably the only place which could still host something of this size (Lossie is too far north I think).

According to some of the base personnel we got speaking to at dinner on the Friday night, they said there are always the 'doom & gloom' rumours (as it seems there have been for numerous previous years!) - and they seemed optimistic. Let's hope so.

The CO, speaking on the local news, said they had started planning for the next one, but wouldn't commit himself.

Once it shuts, 2014, the show will have to move (or stop altogether, which wouldn't surprise me).
