Wind breaks going up in preparation for the illuminations switch on at the end of the month
Particularly liked the Dr Who exhibits at the air show.
Had a great day at the Air Show, was very busy despite the weather & a huge thank you to the organisers, pilots & their teams for putting on a brilliant show in really bad conditions.
It's a pity we can't post screenshots. The whole Comedy Carpet apron was crowded with people this afternoon. I'm pleased for the traders as well as the punters. So often the weather spoils what should have been a good day for them.
Really great day at the air show today despite the weather, everyone seemed to enjoy it.
Anyone know what time it starts?
Yes - the airshow was cancelled Saturday but as currently can be seen on the cam, has gone ahead for today. However, it's just been announced the main attraction the Breitling Jet Team who were replacing the Red Arrows have cancelled out due to "technical difficulties". So plenty of disappointed punters I'm sure as in spite of the bad weather yesterday, Blackpool was extremely busy.
The Airshow got called off because of the weather ?
Looking very grotty (Lancashire expression) 8.00am this morning. Hope the airshow can go ahead this afternoon.
The wind and raindrops on the lens make it look like Blackpool's having an earthquake today. At least we should have a clean lens when it's fine again.
Will just have to make do with Sunday then !
Thanks Noel, we will have to go to the Southport air show 6th - 8th September instead.
Furthermore this weekend's kite festival in nearby St Anne's has just been postponed until September thanks to the weather so anyone who was planning to come to Blackpool for the Air Show on Saturday and/or the kite festival will have to change their plans.
Avril - just been announced the Air show has been cancelled on Saturday. Sunday to go ahead.
Anyone know if the airshow is going ahead this weekend?
Two millionth visit hit today! Also the lowest (3) online I've seen (8th Aug 22:33)
