This weekend we went to Southport Airshow
It was our first time
It was Mini M’s first proper airshow, he’d been to watch the planes at Blackpool last year but didn’t like the jets
It was Baby M’s first airshow
Mr M is a plane geek. He’s a RAF brat, he’s always loved planes. He’s off to RIAT next weekend which is one of the UK’s biggest airshows
We headed to the beach with our factor 50 sun cream for the boys, as well as a blanket & ear defenders
The sea front is closed off so you can only get to the beach if you’ve bought a ticket, we got ours online so they were about £8, under 5’s are free so the boys didn’t cost anything
There is the village where you can meet different pilots & parts of the armed forces as well as buy merchandise. There was another area with static vehicles & eaty places.
We found a great spot on the wall
There were so many amazing displays. It started at 1pm & finished just before 5 with a magnificent display from the Typhoon (Mini M needed his ear defenders)
We loved The Blades, they put on a fantastic display
The Red Bull Matadors were incredible the way they threw their planes around in the air. The same pilots flew the Spitfire Pair later in the display too
Mr M loved the Mustang & when the Blenheim flew with the Spitfire pair.
The MIG 15 did a bomb drop on the beach which was quite impressive
We will definitely go again
We had an excellent day
