EVENTS – 6th / 7th September – Scottish Airshow – Ayr.
Despite the gap left by the absence of the BBMF on the Saturday the revitalised Scottish Airshow was a great success. The crowds were huge and the weather incredibly kind for the event. The flying that did take place was greatly appreciated by the crowds on the ground and the star of the show was as always the Avro Vulcan. Her display on Saturday was a great end to the day and she then landed on at Prestwick for the static display on Sunday. Such is the popularity of the aircraft that she delayed her departure on the Sunday by an hour to try and ensure that as many people as possible got the chance to get up close and personal with this mighty aircraft.
The museum staff has a great day with a very busy stall and of course the open cockpits of the JetStream and the Canberra were as popular as always. It is always great to meet so many people at these events and would love to see you all along at the museum in the future.
