Tremendous!
Think you Dan for the Heads up!
By the way...The traffic was "OK"on the back road to Chudliegh /M5

Glad you enjoyed it too. We had a great day out on the water - there was a real party atmosphere. Looking forward to next year already.

That's an amazing photo C2! Here's a couple from my not quite so birdseye view.

I got to see them from from Sidmouth . They flew past a mile or two inland on their way to Dawlish. We heard them flying back as well, but only got a small glimpse from five or more miles away. The noise of ten Merlins really carries.

The Canberra was a pleasant surprise when that flew over on its way home a little earlier. I'd never seen one in the air before, so that was a nice bonus.

And then Exmouth's Shannon-class arrived for a display.
