wings and wheels air show at dunsfold

this weekend is the annual wings and wheels show at dunsfold airport, living right next to it weve had all sorts of low flying jets, spitfires, a lancaster bomber, chinooks etc, the jets are fyling so low that there are loud bangs, and the noise is incredible, im guessing sonic bangs as they are breaking sound barrier, can you here them mark, scarab racing, from plaistow ?

I should of come down to you with the children and some beers.
The kids love watching them fly over up here but obviously we don't get it as good as you.
The que to get in on Sunday was all the way back to Bramley on the A281 (8-9 Miles)

We went Saturday and the show was fantastic. None of the planes broke the sound barrier it was just the noise of the jet engines.
Highlight for me was the last Vulcan bomber still flying today.
The noise of her 4 olympus engines at 300 foot was awesome.
