Met up with Michael for the first time in ages, this time using his contact at Limington village church; allowed up the tower where we had a cracking view across Yeovilton air base and the spectacular displays from the red arrows and others performing at the annual air show.
Last of all came the surprise of the afternoon as a buzzard came out from the trees below us and started to circle probably looking for his tea.
We left the tower before the end of the show to escape the 30C plus temperatures.
A short time after the wing walkers stunning show things did get faster, certainly noisier, and somewhat smokier with the arrival of the Red Arrows. The cloud cover was increasing as the afternoon progressed and the display contained more horizontal action than previously witnessed in earlier years.
