The annual RAF air show at Waddington was expected to be a
highlight in this year’s airshow season, due to the presence of
six Indian Flankers on the base. 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.
