|Positive Points||Foreign participation included for the first time. A good venue and it's free.|
|Negative Points||Very long gaps between display items.|
|Highlights||Belgian Air Force F-16A, Dutch Navy SH-14D Lynx, RAF Harrier GR7, Jaguar GR3 and Tornado GR1 plus the Red Arrows.|
|Other comment||At least being on the beach, there's other things to look at when there's nothing flying!!|
Harrier displays are always impressive but when given over the sea they seem closer to the crowd than at airfields. Certainly people on the beach got a good soaking from the spray blasted up from the sea by this Harrier GR7 of 20(R) Squadron.
The Royal Netherlands Navy gave a 'live' air sea rescue demonstration. I had this photo published in the November 1999 issue of Aircraft Illustrated.
