    Kemble Air Day - Sunday 18th June 2006

    Nothing new for the hardened enthusiast at Kemble today and the forecast clear skies + 30 degrees deteriorated into high overcast cloud all day. However, this was a very nicely balanced show with something for everyone, vintage, modern, military and civil. The RAF Tornado had to abort his take-off due to an afterburner failure and the highlight of the show was the RNZAF Boeing 757 which was definately a coup for Kemble. Well done Glen + team!

    Talking

    Speaking as one of Glen's "crew" and just back from a long, hard, and very tiring weekend working there - I just thought I would add a few comments too.....lol

    I was Airside all day on security over the far side, positioned right under the flying display line - which would have meant a few amazing shots had my camera been accessible at the right moment Apart from the rather un-nerving experience of seeing everything heading directly at me all day - highlight for me was the low pass by the RNZAF 757 which shot over my head at very little altitude and seemingly banking to avoid an adjacent hanger roof I was nearly ducking for cover - but boy was it impressive....lol
    Tornado aborted alongside me on take-off - typical tonkas (I used to work on em remember). Sparrows aborted their display due to not one but 2 incursions on Kemble airspace Sad to see the Fouga going - nice but quirky little beast (with equally nice but quirky pilot....lol)
    Liked that R/C US Coastguard Herc (1/7th scale) - having seen it close up on the ground - but it did fly a tad fast for scale...but made up for it by dropping dummies on chutes...lol
    Cracking display by the Sea Hawk - glad to see it around again

    All in all - well worth my weekend down there - despite the really long hours on duty - but thats fine cuz I volunteered... Can't wait for the next one now
