Over 340,000 visitors turned up to watch the nation’s most magnificent flying machines in Lowestoft this weekend, with many more choosing to take up their position along Kessingland beach. The 16th annual Lowestoft Air Show saw more than 40 aircraft take to the skies for some death-defying displays of aerobatic skill.
Kessingland and the villlage south along the A12, Wangford were prime spots to see the airshow from according to a lady who stayed in a Self Catering Holiday Cottage in Wangford. ‘I was staying in a lovely self catering cottage in Wangford in Suffolk when we heard planes, we decided to take the short drive up to Kessingland beach to watch the planes. Kessingland was great, lovely beach and good amenities and then in the afternoon we went back to Wangford and watched the afternoon displays from our garden. We had a great day’.
With biplanes, prop planes and jets all taking part, plane-spotters were in heaven, while the thrill and spectacle of the Red Arrows united the crowd. Despite rain on Saturday, and some overcast skies, the air show was a huge success, with hundreds of thousands of happy attendees.
