Fairford Sunday

Maggie mentioned the Fairford Air Tattoo in her weekend blog entries and we both hoped for a free air show at some point during the weekend. Well, this was it. At around 4.45pm, Sunday afternoon, there was a loud rumble and one solitary plane flew over. I suppose the wind was in the "other" direction and the residents of Oxford might have seen the show?

  • I loved going to airshows as well as a kid. I grew up in Michigan and we would travel around the state during the summer and make a point to hit at least one airshow.
    Not to lighten the mood, but I found some airshow footage of a Thunderbird accident where the pilot ejected just before crashing. Miraculously he survived with only minor injuries… The footage is in two perspectives, from the ground and a cockpit cam on the pilot. It's quite amazing!
