    Default Southport Airshow 2008

    Thought I would post up some of my fave pics from yesterdays airshow in Southport.

    It was a really good day, even the sun was out!

    Highlight of the day was seeing the Vulcan Bomber - which had not flown since 1992

    Red Arrows




    The "Apache" Helicopter


    The Chinook

    Radar plane like the "Awax" not sure what model


    Tornado and Hakws fly past

    Eurofighter "Typhoon"

    THE VULCAN BOMBER

    Great pictures! Nice to know the sun was out somewhere ... it certainly wasn't in Silverstone!

    I was there too and it was fantastic, listening to 40,000lbs of thrust from the Typhoon is just superb.

    The Vulcan sounds ace too and looks amazing considering it is nearly 60 years old!
