The Sunderland International Airshow is one of Europe’s biggest and it’s free! It takes place on the seafront at Seaburn and always attracts a big crowd; not just families looking for a day out and hoping to see regulars like The Red Arrows and Falcons Parachute Team but enthusiasts too drawn by rare appearances by Merlin, Apache and fast jets from Europe. This year the star for everyone was the newly restored Vulcan bomber tearing the sky apart with its spine-tingling ‘howl’. The weather was perfect for our powerful lens cameras; clear air, puffy clouds and the eastern aspect meant we were not looking into the sun. Hi-fi stereo sound and interactive on-board cameras crown the viewing experience.
