VIDEO: Bournemouth Air Festival day two round-up: bumper day offers something for everyone
COLOUR, speed and noise ruled supreme on day two of Bournemouth Air Festival.
Despite a cloudy start, another flawless flying programme wowed the crowds on the beach with the colourful Miss Demeanour jet providing the final howls of the day before the welcome return of WW2 Flying Fortress Sally B rounded things off in the sun to the sound of Glenn Miller.
Making a long-awaited return was the raucous Typhoon, screaming across the seafront at 700mph with a howl that went right through the on-looking flying fans – not to mention setting off a few car alarms on the East Cliff.
In a busy daytime that saw no fewer than 16 different aircraft, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight again kicked things off before the Jet Provost provided a look at another period of RAF history.
A break in the flying saw a dramatic beach assault from the armed forces, before the Typhoon roared in for the first time in four years.
There were not one but two Lynx helicopters – one from the Army and one from the Royal Navy – while there was a glimpse of past and present as the Navy Lynx and WW2 Swordfish flew together before the Swordfish performed in all its glory.
The crowds had already had plenty of treats, but at 3pm to the second they welcomed the Red Arrows, who defied the cloud to show off their daring moves.
Joining the party was the epic Chinook helicopter, while there were second chances to see Patrouille Reva, the Tucano, aerobatics from Gerald Cooper, the Merlin helicopter, Rolls Royce Spitfire and The Tigers parachute team.
It was a bumper day that had something for everyone as Bournemouth Air Festival 2013 continued in triumphant fashion.
