Went to the Eastbourne Airshow today and saw the following aircraft.
SeaKing, Hawker Hunter, Gnat, BBMF (Spitfire & Lancaster) Lynx & Jet Provost just a few.
But the star of the show was the Avro Vulcan with full afterburner on.

A great day, but even with the wind a hot day!

Great stuff! Love them planes, saw the Vulcan myself a few years ago at Goodwood, an impressive spectacle.

As I have said before on this forum the Vulcan bomber is the best sight in the sky especially with full afterburner!
