Went to the above on Sunday and spent a very enjoyable day at what turned out to be a fantastic event. Highlights included a demonstration of wartime dancing styles, masses of motorbikes and classic vehicles of all descriptions, static helicopter displays, parachute display, fly past  by bi planes, tri planes, Spitfire and Mustang and best of all a Flying Fortress which was absolutely awesome. Plenty of music as well - what an amazing voice Alexandra Burke has ! It was good to watch the football as well although the sun shone so brightly it will take me ages to loose the pink tinge. All in all a splendid day with the added bonus of the truly outstanding surroundings of the castle and grounds. I know this was to celebrate the centenary of the 1st World War but it would make a fantastic annual event.  We can but hope that Lord and Lady Carnarvon think so too.
Be seeing you ;-)
