This was my tenth consecutive year visiting Eastbourne Airbourne and I attended the Friday and Saturday shows, staying overnight at a seafront hotel. Friday was sunny and warm (20°C) but with a 20 knot wind from the east, and a heavy rain shower late Saturday afternoon interrupted the MiG-15 display.
The lineup was superb. This was my first time watching Team Raven, a six-ship RV display team and the Belgian Air Force launched pyrotechnics from their F-16. The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight have temporarily grounded their Merlin aircraft but sent a Griffin-powered Spitfire Mk 19.
