For some unfathomable (to me) reason the CAA imposed new restrictions on the Red Arrows flight lines over Dartmouth so they were unable to perform their display today
but they did grace the regatta with a flypast in each direction (waste of time & fuel really).
Other displays including vintage planes did perform including doing acrobatics over the river.
Maybe my logic is at at fault but I can't see any parallels between a vintage privately owned jet crashing off the flight line, and the performances from an RAF team at a very well established venue.
I can fully understand the ruling that vintage jets - or any vintage aircraft should only perform acrobatics over the sea after recent events - but restricting the Red Arrows so they can't perform at a regular site...bonkers.
Lots of disappointed people today who weren't aware the show had been cancelled .
