Then of course for all the Top Gun fans - the F-15. No sign of Tom Cruise though...
Another highlight - there was a Jet Car on display, they fired it up and raced it against Rob Holland in his sports plane. Rob of course flew upside-down.
The F-18 Hornet came out about mid-day. What's really weird about the jets is that you really can't hear them at all until they fly by. Obviously they couldn't break the sound barrier for the show but this one and the F-16 later on got pretty close. The F-18 can do 1800mph, the F-16 can go 1400mph. Anyone who's heard an F1 car up close will know the sort of noise we're talking about here.
Yeah it may be tough to see it but in fairness - you try and snap a decent photo when this thing ticks over at about 150mph.
All in all, a grand day out!
