Kemble Air Day

The Chinook was the slowest flying object - so perhaps this was the best photo I was able to take!

Behind the smoke in the height of the mock battle you can see "AV8" next to control tower. This cafe is a good place to go on a sunny day as one can sit on the veranda and watch the light aircraft come and go.

This is a Hawk participating in the mock battle (this plane was a "baddie")

The Royal Navy Helicopter display - we were sitting just underneath these birds.

We love it! Very crowded - which is a good thing - I think it is important for all of us to see the RAF in all it's glory and perhaps this helps a little in understanding how skilled our troops have to be to fly these powerful machines.

Oooh my fella would love these pics - he's just booked a weekend to take our son to Farnborough air show this year.

Those helicopters are a bit close together! Must have been very impressive.
