A four day biggles fest amply supported by local breweries and again I succumbed to my eldest sons pleadings and went to the seafront to drink ale and have my conversation interrupted by biggles.
Ok saw everything, nothing new worthy of watching but there was a P51D Mustang and a Bristol Blenheim, what a beauty the Blenheim was. Worth the aggro of going into town for once. Usually I can sit in my garden as all of the ac stack before display over my house at some point but this was worth it to see the Blenheim. BOBMF? Yes ok, not much different year on year and the red arrows, well frankly at my age barring them mooning at the crowd I think Ive seen it all. But the Blenheim, what a treat!

My OH and some friends were going to go to Eastbourne but cried off because they reckoned low cloud cover would mean a lot of the display couldn't go ahead.

Was this the case with some of the aircraft displays?

Thursday was reduced, friday and saturday ok, not sure about today. Saturday was overcast but the only thing I didn't see was a parachute display, everything else was as per the program which seemed greatly reduced on previous years!
