Silent Sunday: Circles in the Sky

Following more than £200bn of orders over the past five days, the Farnborough Air Show opened its doors to the public this weekend, and what an experience it was. (I’m not usually one to shout about my birthday, but yesterday was the day, and my treat was the air show!) Can you guess who painted this heart in the sky?

My absolute favourite aerobatic display team – the Red Arrows…

I probably shouldn’t forget to mention the airplane my DH flies, too…

Which took off to cheers from the crowd, and proceeded to execute a seemingly impossible display of tight turns relatively close to the ground.

Defying the weatherman’s dire prediction of storms, the show also featured a helicopter that dazzled onlookers with its back flips (no joke!), wing walkers, a WWI mock dogfight and this Harrier Jump Jet, which hovered in the air and took a bow…

Awesome day!

    I was there over the weekend as well, my favourite was the Harrier Jump Jet (I’ve always loved that jet! ever since I can remember first seeing one)

    • I love the Harrier too! And, yes, remember it from childhood! I don’t think the British have any anymore 😦 The one at Farnborough was Spanish I think? It was a great show, wasn’t it? x
