I think they use the Humber Bridge as a way point when low level flying but I have never seen a Hercules in desert camo unless of course it was the effects of two rather large Bacardi Cokes having an effect on my vision  ;D

I had to re-read your original post, because I momentarily forgot that it was from last night - I was just about to ask what you were doing having two (rather large) Bacardi Cokes before 1pm, lol!  Doh!

Very cool though.

Good that Planes TV streamed live footage from Weston, so all those who couldn't be there could watch an impressive display, even though some of the planned participants couldn't make it or were running a wee bit late.

If you're near Abingdon today you may be treated to a Wokka display!

They just tweeted this:

RAF Chinook Display ‏@ChinookDisplay
Great day for a practice today. If you're around Oxfordshire we're at Abingdon #bladeslap #chinookdisplay

Whoda thunk it?
