What a difference a day makes, the Saturday before was glorious with clear skies and temperatures well into the 70's. Unfortunately Sunday dawned decidedly wet and windy and although the rain cleared the wind strengthened which put pay to most of the visiting aircraft. We were scheduled to have a display by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, but unfortunately they saw the weather forecast and headed off back to RAF Conningsby the evening before. With Neil McCarthy and Dai Heather Hayes weathered in things were looking bleak, but there were to be some highlights from the afternoon ahead. Ian Simpson departed for Carlisle and made some much welcome noise in the PA-32 Cherokee Six, while Chris Jones and friends decided to take a few of the based gyroplanes aloft which kept the small crowd entertained. Andy Wilson arrived to take his Yak-50 to Carlisle for some fuel, promising some entertainment for later in the day, but unfortunately the wind increased in the afternoon meaning he was lucky to be able to land with the wind right on the limit. Luckily the Viper Jet Provost group based at Carlisle had heard we were really struggling with the weather and brought the JP over for some much needed jet noise along with a couple of nice fly-by's on arrival and departure. Early afternoon heard the sound of a powerful Lycoming engine in the overhead and much to our surprise Simon Johnstone arrived in the Sokol Kraguj from Fishburn despite the bad weather and a change of route mid transit. Later in the day the Kraguj gave a great display despite the incredibly gusty wind. Highlight of the day though was the fly through by the RAFAT The Red Arrows who arrived right on time. Shortly after this came the news we were going to get a flyby from the Great North Air Ambulance "Pride of Cumbria". She was going to be with us for most of the day but the day before had been a busy one for the crews and were unable to meet the crowds at the Windermere Airshow so they went there for a couple of hourse before treating us to a couple of fly-bys and a close in hover before departing back to Carlisle. Although we have to admit it certainly wasn't a classic there were certainly a few great movements and £870 was still raised for the Great North Air Ambulance.
