Sunderland International Air Show 2009
Three is a crowd
If I wondered why South Shields seemed remarkably quiet and empty on Saturday afternoon then I guess this was the reason why.
The 21st. Sunderland International Air Show was taking place just a few miles down the road, the sun was out, it was dry and warm, and a few people had taken to the beach at Seaburn! In fact organisers reckon that there may have been 500,000 visitors or more in Seaburn and Roker on Saturday to watch the aviators in what is Europe’s largest free event of it’s kind – a lot of chips, burgers, and ice cream were consumed!
