No never again!!!

They park up deep rows of civilian and the show aircraft between the spectators and the runway so you only catch fleeting glimpse of all the show aircraft taxiing, landing and taking off. Unless the aircraft in front of you moved it blocked everything out. 

The catering was a disaster… They ran out of drinks including water from about 11am. The food stalls mostly ran out of food and those that didn’t were only taking prepaid orders only with 45-minute waits common place. 

They stopped for a lunch in the program and the caterers weren’t ready, these being numerous small independent vendors.
Public address system was a joke. No local radio commentary broadcast.

I’ve been to lots of air shows for over 40 years and this was the worst attempt of one I had ever seen…  >:(
