The traditional display of flying accompanied by music was hampered by bad weather at Middle Wallop.
"The organisers - the Army Air Corps - coped valiantly with some horrendous weather, and had to make some necessary changes to the programme. The music, played by the Pro Arte Orchestra, was unaffected, but some of the flying and the Red Devils had to go. What was typical of a British event was how many people stayed for the whole programme despite the downpour, eating their picnics under umbrellas or, for the well-prepared, under tents."
"The organisers were able to light the fireworks at the end, which meant the whole evening ended with a bang. The Catalina Flying Boat was a popular display, along with some aircraft from the First World War."
"The Youngs will be back next year - our clothes should have dried out by then."
