Southend Air Show 2012

On Saturday I took my family down to Southend for the annual Air Show. The Southend Air Show is a free event (if you ignore the parking fees) with a varied selection of aircraft on display. Like all of these events the actual line-up is largely weather dependent but this year - with glorious sunshine throughout - there were no cancellations and the show proceeded as planned.

This was a great show made even better by the excellent weather. As usual I shot hundreds of pictures but managed to trim this down to about a hundred which are shown here as a Slideshow.


  1. Looks like a great day out Lee! ;)

  2. Really stunning pics there, must have been a fantastic day


  3. Awesome day out and excellent pictures.

  4. Very nice pictures... Looks like an awesome show and a nice day!


  5. WOW excellent Shots! I used to enjoy going to the Sunderland airshow, when I was back in the UK, brings back fond memories. You must have a bloody good lens on that camera! When I tried shots of such aircraft I get 'dots' in the middle of a blue sky...
    The only thing, you have tagged a picture a p51 mustang, but I think that's a p40 Warhawk / Kittyhawk???

    1. Oopskie! Thanks for the heads up...I'll update my labels. I think there must have been a change to the flight list cos I got that from the website.


Thank you for leaving a comment. I always try to reply as soon as I can, so why not pop back later and continue the conversation. In the meantime, check out my YouTube channel Miniature Adventures TV
