Clacton Air Show

Despite the rain Clacton managed to pull off a lovely air show again.

"2013 celebrates 22 years of the annual Clacton Air Show. The event organised by Tendring District Council, is a well established FREE event on theEssex Sunshine Coast.
Our award winning seafronts and greensward are transformed over the two days into a fun filled events site and viewing area.  Impressive aerobatic displays take to the skies whilst a whole host of exhibition, trade stands, food court and on-site entertainment are available at ground level."  (from the event website)

The RAF Red Arrows were splendid - just as I remembered they were as a kid.

  


Fortunately (?) a lot of the war planes couldn't fly at very last minute due to the weather conditions at Duxford, which meant the Air Ambulance got to display after it had been called out on an earlier shout and missed it's slot.

Apologies for not remembering the other performer, you were all excellent and made my boy's day.

The stalls were tightly packed and very busy, and although my boy's and their cousin enjoyed the pokemon adventure stall I may have lost the will to live waiting for them to finish the never ending battles.
  


Cost:
FREE!!!

Would I go again?
definitely.
