However, things turned out different. The weather had been awful in the weeks before the show, submerging large parts of the United Kingdom and making no exception for the surroundings of Waddington. On Saturday the show went on, although the weather really spoilt the air display. The Red Arrows had to knock-off after ten minutes of display, and the RAF role demo was also cancelled, leaving two Tornado GR4s only the opportunity to do some passes. The pyrotechnics on the ground did put off a bit of a show though. Due to heavy rain Saturday night, the base and its surroundings became a big pool of mud, which left the air show organisation no other choice than to cancel the show early around eight o’clock in the morning. The people who went on Saturday were treated with two Indian Flankers in the static display, as well as three in the flying program.
