South East Airshow (Pictures)

Last week was Sci-Fi by the Sea this week was a smashing air show. Who says there is nothing to do down in Thanet?

Air show Manston 2013

Despite the weather there was a greater than expected turnout and even though the heavy cross winds kept a few kites grounded we were still treated to an exception show.

Throughout the next few weeks I shall continue to post pictures of the air show that I have taken as I sort through them all as well as any others you care to share.

There are plenty more posted on the Thanet Star Facebook Page and the Thanet Star Pintrest Board. Mostly because it is quicker to upload lots of photographs to these places.

Did you take a great photograph of the airshow? If so Tag Thanet Star on Facebook, mention us on twitter or send us a private message with a link to your picture and I'll try to post as many as possible over the next few weeks.

It may have been a good show for those that got in but for those stuck in traffic for 5 hours despite having tickets and failing to make it in time it was a complete disaster. And we are not talking about a few but a few thousands. I even hear that many local businesses are going to make claims against the organisers for losses from lack of customers due to the gridlock.
And Matt were they really charging 7.50 for a burger?

I can't comment on the food prices as I expected this, like Margate's "big event" to be hugely over priced and packed a lunch.

We left Margate after one o'clock and arrived without incident ten minutes later. The queues were large but other than that I did not see the grid lock.

That said, I had friends who said getting into Thanet was not so easy.

we left Birchington at 10.30 and were parked up by 10.45 no problem,If people had set off earlier and had a bit more faith, the congestion wouldnt have been so bad, trouble was people waiting to see what the weather would do then setting off at last minute to catch the air display, caused massive traffic bulge and consequent frustration!

There have been no reports from readers of burgers that expensive.
