RNAS Culdrose Airshow. Last year it rained all day - rubbish! We saw nothing! Yesterday, the weather was perfect! You could see everything. Star of the show was the Vulcan flying down from Hampshire. A very rare flight from the most amazing bird. My Uncle used to fly them so I was really keen to see one for the first time. BBC Radio tracked it as it made it's way down. And at just before 4pm, we saw here circling in the distance waiting her turn.
We were settled on top of the minibus at the end of the runway - and watched as she made her approach. Down towards us she came then banking hard to the North. The noise was unbelievable. If that thing flew over during combat you would just be out of there, it's not natural. It's a stunning aircraft. On one run, it got half way down the runway then pointed to the sky - the ground shook as spectators covered their ears!
Other stand outs of the day - the wing walkers were brilliant. And the Royal Jordanian display team were also off the scale. A very good day - highly recommend it for next year!
Today's top holiday tip - looking for somewhere to go to eat and where the kids can go off and play? Look no further than Carruan Farm - they just put in one of their barns a big kids play area with boats, a hay and soft assault course. We met my sister up their last night with her kids - they had a right laugh!
