    Shoreham Air Show this weekend. We're just a couple of miles from Shoreham Airport. I was just out cutting the grass when the loudest thing I've ever heard came overheard. OMG I nearly hit the ground and took cover. I've been at Heathrow when Concorde has taken off and that had nothing on this noise.

    I've checked the website and narrowed it down to one of these...

    Eurofighter Typhoon F2
    BAE System Hawk T1
    Shorts Tucano T1
    Grob Tutor T1

    It was triangle shaped and very, very loud. :shocked025:

    Might put my anorak on tomorrow and go up the top of Lancing Clump with my camera. :D

    no the vulcan wasn't there. I was at the airshow and me thinks it was probably the eurofighter because that was the loudest thing there

    WARNING!!! Plane geek alert!!!! :rofl:

    I didn't think it was a vulcan because it didn't have the camo on it.

    I took the dog for a walk on the downs yesterday. When I got to our little normal car park it was jammed with cars everywhere. Normally about 4 cars in there. Got parked and took the dog up the hill and saw these people everywhere. They were sitting on deckchairs in the middle of the field. All huddled under blankets because it's windy up there. And they're all staring in silence in the direction of the airport. And it's so misty up there that ocassionally they got a glimpse of a few grey shapes that could have been flying sharks for all you could see up there. But they sat there for hours just staring.

    In fact some of them only moved when Willow tried to raid their picnics.
