East Fortune Airshow - 2015

Well, as the weather forecast was fair I headed through to the air show at East Fortune.

I hadn't bought advance tickets as any savings were swallowed up with the booking fee unfortunately.

It was a very busy show and the weather held well until about the last hour of the display, but pleased to say the rain was very light and didn't impact too much.

The sky however was very overcast and the good light we enjoyed earlier in the day wasn't available for the later participants in the flying display.

Parking was £4 - and that covered the cost of a rather rough field with heavy vegetation. I felt sorry for the families dragging their prams over the rough ground. Would have thought it could at least have been trimmed for the day.

Not the best flying display I've witnessed I have to say, and the lack of the Vulcan in her last year of flight was kinda hard to take. A very big miss on the day.

As the Scottish Airshow at Prestwick later in the year offers a free flying display on the Saturday I'll consider my options carefully next year.

A ticket will also be £5 less expensive on the Sunday for the static displays.

We also have the bonus that the Vulcan will be at the Scottish airshow this year.
