Weston Park in the Dark

For the second time this year, I travelled to the UK for the great airshow that is Weston Park.  This time however for the night show version!

Despite it being a night show lasting approximately three hours as soon as it gets dark, as with the daytime version we made the most of it with a load of “practice” during the hours of daylight as well!

The amount of pyros and explosions where incredible, much more than during the day show.  With the planes loaded with pyros and lights it was not for the faint hearted.  From the most simple setups to mind boggling 84 channel multicolour setups and everything in between.

During the day I was fortunate enough to go up in a full size Fox glider that was to participate in the show that evening.  The feeling of flying without an engine is really something that you need to experience for yourself, add to this a camera plane flying very very close to the side with one in front towing, plust some “G” forces make for some great memories.
