The airshow is a great day out. Good selection of aircraft and aerial displays. The typhoon and the red arrows are great. Good beach location would recommend.

Enjoyed the whole day,lots to see,but I don’t think there was as many aeroplanes this time. Found the prices for some food ‘ridiculous’i.e two fish fingers and chips £14!for some reason I didn’t buy them.
