Even though we are in a recession, I see that valliant efforts are being made to ensure that Thanet's 'Big Event' takes place on June 20th & 21st.
I'm sure it's going to be a much tougher climate for sponsorship; cash-strapped Royal Bank of Scotland are certainly out of the picture today but it would be good to see the very popular airshow weekend at Palm Bay carry on with minimal disruption from our strangled economy.
Now I wonder if we could persuade the crazy French Mirage pilots seen in the YouTube video below to make an appearance!? No,wait a moment, someone is bound to complain about the aircraft noise if they did! It looks as if they may have spotted one of the models from the so-called, 'Naked in Thanet' weblog on the way past the beach at Palm Bay in the video!
