Excellent display at Biggin Hill yesterday, the two highlights had to be the start with the Spitfire and Typhoon which opened the show and the "Sally B" and the Mustang.

And for pure putting the hairs up on the back of your neck the noice and the pure power of the Tornado's what and adrenalin rush !!!!

I used to see a lot of the Sally B and various old warbirds when I worked at Duxford as a volunteer restoring old aeroplanes in the 90's.

very nice, but jets were more my thang. I was at the last ever Vulcan display too. Now that was a machine!!

I remember the Tornado guys once got severely bollocked for a very, very low pass in full burner that set of every car alarm in the car park. Cool as anything though!

Never lucky enough to see an SR71 sadly. Now that IS an aircraft!

It keeps the horses out of the 'play' area, and keeps Ana in - so she does not run wild in the woodlands at the end of the farm....


The show opening pair went right over my house, and the jet pilot hit the after burners, as he was dropping in height. THAT was a bowel moving experiance!

That was amazing and the noise when they light up the afterburners just fantastic, hope you are enjoying it for a second time today Marc.
