Super aircraft rarities are very welcome. Sad that RAF Memorial flight not there but not worth risking such venerable kites. The Blades took part in a stunt at RAF Cosford at a RAFA do, where a returned Afghanistan injured veteran set a world record by drinking his mug of tea upside down during each of 14 consecutive loops in one of them.

Re: Southend air show Picture

the Catalina could land either, too rough and wind in wrong direction.  Last day today, wind is down, but this part of coast is very overcast and slight drizzle,  10 miles to west OK

Just had the Catalina fly over Braintree - South to North at maybe 1000 ft max
