Airbourne afternoon

Every year there is a free air show on Eastbourne seafront (Airbourne) and there haven't been many years that we've not gone to watch.

Yesterday afternoon one of my favourites flew over our house, the Lancaster bomber. It always reminds me of my dad who loved it too. You can hear it a mile away as it has a very distinctive drone. I ran to the back garden to watch it and then to the front of the house. Today the four of us spent the afternoon sat on the prom watching the planes doing their stuff, including the Lancaster below.

The Lancaster and Spitfire.

Two Red Bull planes doing acrobatic displays.

The Vulcan..

 It gave me goosebumps!

Ice creams were ate, beer was drunk and an enjoyable afternoon was had by all.........and we may even go back for more tomorrow but this time on top of Beachy Head where the views are even better!


  1. Fab! we usually go and watch the bournemouth airshow if we are that way. also love watching the Red Arrows go overhead(we're near to Goodwood) when they attend all the events there. so gives goosebumps!!

  2. Such fun, and you had blue skies too! One of the (many) things I miss about living by the coast is the air shows, they are such a fun day out.
