Sunderland Air Show this weekend. We usually get to see stuff flying around as some of the aircraft will be operating from Newcastle Airport, which is only about 5 miles away from us. I hope to get to see the Bronco this year.

Sounds great Bob. Hope the weather cooperates.

Very poor weather, rain and low cloud, marred the Sunderland Airshow, and for the first time in several years we didn't get to see stuff flying from Newcastle Airport to the show area on the coast. The only exception to that being the Hurricane from the BoB flight, which flew over quite low this morning.

I've seen it quite a few times, both in the air and on the ground, but it never fails to awe me.
