2004 Air Show Hit By Bad Weather

YET again 'Sunny' Southport did not live up to its reputation as high winds and rains pounded the spectators and aircraft. 

What is now the leading air show of its type in the UK was reduced to a rag tag display which proved heart breaking to the spectators and organisers alike.

Most spectators arrived on Saturday with sun braking through the clouds to promise a great day but as the day went on the cloud level dropped and the wind increased. This meant most of the displays were cancelled. 

By the end of the first day, the war on the beach was bravely fought by the Army, but a cloud burst sent spectators running to their cars. "We wanted to stay for longer, but as we have young kids and we were getting socked through, we called it a day." Jill from Manchester told us from her car. 

To add to the misery, at the end of Saturday, a coach broke down on the coast road causing a massive tail back that lasted a good hour after the show traffic normally clears.

Sunday proved a bit better with more displays, but again the weather stole the show.    I have to say I was glad I was not flying this year!  I really felt sorry for the Wing Walkers as they braved not only the stunts, but the wind and the rain.

Well done to all who were involved.  Despite the bad weather you put on a display and that makes you a credit to the area.

We like to thank Sefton Tourist Board for their help this year, the RAF and also Pleasureland.
