Today the kids & I headed down to Cromer to watch the airshow put on by the very cool Blades Acrobatic Display Team.
I don’t think I’ve ever been to a real airshow before… I vagely remember something about 15+ years ago when my nephew Seth was around Maebh’s age, but I don’t think it was an air show. Anyway, you know what to expect. A few planes, in this case four, flying through the sky doing cool tricks and formation with smoke. While it looks simple, it’s crazy hard and they practice years & years to do this.
Each year the military group the Red Arrows demonstrate, but they had to pull out this year due to a military commitment of some sort. They are supposed to be the best of the best and they are actually fighter jets and there is a woman pilot too! So they replaced their one show with two – the Blades at noon and the Wildcats at 4 pm, which we didn’t see, but heard.
It was still cool & the photos show how great they were in doing it. I took loads of photos of all directions, some better than others….
It was a really nice day, great weather and fun with friends. When we got home, both kids were sugared up with the yummy piece of cake.
A few hours later, we headed back into the town center to watch the Parade. Those photos will come when I have more time – but it was a fun night too.
