The aircraft chosen to open the show was the highly agile Eurofighter Typhoon from No 29 Squadron, RAF Coningsby,
Unfortunately, the sky was thick with grey cloud which didn't help with visibility, and at times the aircraft could be seen slicing through the water vapour, but the pilot still managed an impressive performance coupled with incredible speeds .
As it was the seaside, there were plenty of Gulls trying to steal the show.
It is a great looking aircraft. and described as a supremely effective dogfighter, and a close second only to the American F-22 Raptor, which is actually nearly twice the cost of a Eurofighter.
