We had a great day yesterday at Eastbourne Air Show, otherwise known as Airbourne.
The Red Arrows were the highlight of course, so here's the best of the photos I got (just using a Canon compact as well!):
Yes, this picture IS the right way up!
A Belgian F16 Fighting Falcon did an impressive show as well:
This picture was taken as it did an incredibly slow fly-by, very close to stall speed - impressive control from the pilot!
He let off a few flares as well, seeing as there weren't any fireworks...
There was of course a Spitfire, doing some impressive acrobatics:
And also the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, with a Lancaster, Spitfire and Hurricane:
A more quirky, but still impressive, show was put on by two Breitling 'wing walkers', which involved two people doing acrobatics while fastened to the top wing of two 70-year-old bi-planes!
And beneath all of this, a lifeboat was waiting - fortunately their services were not required!
Lastly, we also saw a JetLev...
The video shows how it works, it's a water-powered jet pack!
Looking forward to going to Airbourne again next year...
