After the success of last year, we were very happy to make return visit to the yearly RAF Waddington International Airshow. It is one of the best shows of the year attracting great international participation. The highlight this year being the Korean national demonstration team, the Black Knights debuting in Europe with the T50 jet trainer. This time we took part in the static display park only, receiving a great spot next to the large display hangar.
On Friday, the ground crew arrived at Waddington well in time to see Tony and Edith arriving in the Bronco. With the help of some Cadets, the Bronco was manually pushed into place, and the cadets were suitably rewarded with a donation of some books for their charity lottery on behalf of Bronco Demo Team.
During the weekend, the weather was perfect for the flying display, clear dry sky with some fluffy clouds as backdrop. The show was filled with some of the best flying around, ranging from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight to the modern Typhoon. Not only the flying display was very attractive, but also in the static some unique aircraft could be found, like the Australian B737 Wedgetail.
It was great to meet up with so many fans and exchanging experiences with, amongst many others, the crew of the German Phantom and the Hawker Hunter display team, we even found a new Cheerleader… On Saturday morning we were honoured with the visit of Air Chief Marshal Sir Stephen Gary George Dalton and Minister Sir Gerald Howarth, who were very interested in the Bronco. On Monday, Jessie had the great pleasure to fly back home in the Bronco, and she discovered a Bronco fan on the way.
Hereby we would like to thank everyone who came to say hello and especially the Waddington Airshow organization team for the great support and hospitality!
