The first ever Airshow came to Torbay this weekend.
There was a Spitfire and a Hurricane, 2 Breitling Wingwalkers, a Stikemaster, 4 Yakovlecs. On Sunday The Red Arrows zoomed in. They had to fly their ‘flat’ rather than full programme because there was too much overhanging cloud. No loops or rolls or wingovers; but plenty of wizzy flypasts and steepling turns.
The Typhoon that finished both afternoons off was the real showstopper. It tore the edge off the sky at 600 mph; we were all watching in awe – thunderstruck!
