The award winning Dawlish Carnival Airshow is one of the most spectacular aviation events in the UK. Superb vantage points along this beautiful stretch of Devonshire coastline give unique views of regular display aircraft such as the Red Arrows. Rarer displays make Dawlish special too and locally based Hawker Hunter XE610 was a breathtaking sight. Flying low over the sea its display was complete with the sound of its beautiful ‘Blue Note’. 100 years of Naval aviation was marked with displays from Kennet Aviation’s Wasp and a Royal Navy Sea King adorned in a special paint scheme marking the type’s 40th year of Fleet Air Arm service. The undoubted highlight of the show though was the pairing of AVRO Vulcan XH558 and the Red Arrows – the first time the formation has been seen since the Vulcan’s RAF career ended in 1992.
