Southport Air Show - Part 1 of 2
OVER the 9 July and 10 July 2022 the Southport Air Show, an annual event that has been running since 1991, was back after a 2 year gap, due to Covid19. Sexton's marketing team said:- "Air Shows are as much a part of the traditional summer seaside experience as fish and chips" and would couldn't agree more. Still recognised as the North West's largest Airshow, that combines a spectacular air displays on the ground, for those who attended, it was quite a show. Sadly, no big explosions this year, expert for the field guns, but this lack of booms on the ground was made up for in spades, with lots of other things to watch. This year had an interesting mix of aerobatic displays, including the Red Arrows, but many had headed to the show, not to see them, but to see the The 53rd Air Demonstration Group, nicknamed the Black Eagles. The team from the Republic of Korea Air Force picked Southport as 1 of only 3 to UK shows they will be flying at. Sadly, range issues meant the full show they normally do couldn't take place, but they still derived an amazing display, as did the Red Arrows. We would love to know who you thought was the best, The ROKAF Aerobatic Team or the Red Arrows? Email us to:- News24@SouthportReporter.Com... We have to say, we thought the commentator for the Black Eagles stole the show... These are some of the many photographs we took at this years event. More photographs will be run in our next issue as Part 2, plus we have already published some in our preview in the previous edition. Click here to see last weeks report.
