The third year since its inception Torbay
Airshow draws large crowds to the beautiful bay centered on the town of
Paignton, between Torquay and Brixham, along England’s south west
coast. The bay provided a natural safe harbor for the Royal Navy fleets
until early last century. The area is now rightly named the English Riviera
thanks to its mild climate with palm trees abound, as we were to savour
during our stay.
Displaying at Torbay was a first for Bronco Demo Team. Together with
most other display aircraft we were based out of Exeter airport, about
20 nm north of the display site. XLR corporate Jet Centre provided excellent
ground services and made our stay very comfortable indeed.
