I recall clearly as a child frequent visits to the annual Prestwick Air Show. A boy’s delight with guns and bombs and raucous jets screaming overhead. I also recall frequent visits to Glasgow Airport to see all the Concordes assembled on the runway. With one of the Test Pilots as a distant relation the sheer joy of flying machines and Concorde in particular created a wee soft spot. This group is from the East Fortune Air Show in July 2006.
Sunday is the day of races from F1, F2 and GP3 and crowds are frantic to catch a good spot so an early rise at 5am is necessary. I refused to break into a run carrying two chairs and camera bag at 5:55am on a Sunday just for a good spot. Nevertheless a great spot was found three rows from the fence on the home straight within elevated sight lines of three jumbotron screens. At race start there were 14 rows of chairs behind and lots of people standing behind them.
In any case there are too many shots and video clips for one posting, one final post to go.
