On this day last year I moved back to Bournemouth after living away for 3 miserable years. I was greeted by the Red Arrows the Vulcan and Bournemouth's new welcome sign (which i love). It was a glorious day and I felt like it was all for me (I couldn't tell you how many times I almost burst with tears of joy). I couldn't have been happier or more proud to live in Bournemouth. This is truly the best place in UK to live. THANK YOU BOURNEMOUTH and THANK YOU AIR SHOW. love xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Wow - a 94 year old gentleman wing-walking, that's astonishing. If I'm able to do anything nearly as exciting and brave as that when I'm in my 90s (I'm 27) then I'll be extremely chuffed.
