Dawlish Air Show 2015

My first visit to Dawlish Air Show; weather was always going to be unpredictable on the day and so it proved sunny to start off, then grey followed by thunder and lightning which snookered the end of the show.

I went for a location on Smugglers Hill, small charge to park in the field and a voluntary brochure purchase to contribute towards the show. It's a smashing location although a bit distant for some of the helicopter displays. The show was superb from start to finish and saw final air show appearances from 771 Royal Navy Sea King MK5 Search and Rescue Squadron, Avro Vulcan XH588 "Spirit of Great Britain and "Avenger Flight" two Sea king HC MK4 Royal Navy aircraft. I have seen the Vulcan before but I have never heard it howl like it did during this flypast, it was a fantastic sight/sound. Best display aircraft for me was the RAF Typhoon simply amazing! Well here are some images from the event.
