On Sunday 5th September, I went to the International Airshow in Portrush. It takes place annually and apparently attracted around a quarter of a million visitors over the two days. Marking the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain there was a marching pipe band and a Poppy Drop. The poppy drop was phenomenal, the picture below shows no less than 2 million poppy petals that were dropped over the north coast. Some of the planes I saw were the ASK 21 Glider, Miles M14A Hawk Trainer, Piper Arrow II, Vans RV-7, Hawk T1, Antonov AN-2 and the Silence SA180/SA1100 [The Twister Duo]
