This weekend we’ve been under attack, in fact at times it sounded like WW3 had broken out as waves of bombers and fighter jets passed overhead. OK that’s maybe a bit dramatic, it was due to the airshow at RAF Waddington. It’s not that Waffle Towers is situated at the end of the runway, we’re a few miles away, but we are on the flightpath, and some of those planes do not worry about flying quietly over a residential area.
At times I have jokingly thought that some of the planes were so low, I could fist bump the pilot as he flew past…well it turns out not to be such a joke after all…
NB: The 2015 airshow has been cancelled due to essential repairs to the runway, at least we’ll get some peace and quiet!
