Eastbourne International Airshow & Beachy Head, Eastbourne trip

East Dean:





Beachy Head:










The above two pictures are of the Eurofighter Typoon. This is the first time I have seen them in 'action'. The agility is too awesome to describe and the noise is simply magnificant.




This, I am 95% certain, is a RAF Supermarine Spitfire. When I was a kid in Malaysia I used to read up on the Spitfires and how they defended Britain from German bombers during the second World War. A magnificant and beautiful flying machine.


A Merlin HC3 flexes its muscle while we were climbing down.







A Tornado GR4?





Seven Sisters from the bus:

is it true that Westlife shot their "flying without wings" videoclip here? i mean at seven sisters/beachy head?

Kat said...

Beachy Head! Why are your pictures nicer than mine? *sulks*

Jon said...

Kept: Westlife? Err..er.. not sure. Never seen the clip. Sorry!

Kat: I took 150 pictures that day so it was a hit or miss moment.

BTW this is my first time to Beachy Head. Can't believe I never bothered to go. Living in London/Brighton sometimes I just take for granted life here.

Saturday we just decided to jump on the number 13. Did not know there was an airshow but what a lucky coincidence! Last day too!

Jon: Me not sure either ;) coz my fren told me that. Me & my gf (she's studying in Brighton) went to Beachy Head, Birling Gap & Seven Sisters last June. I like the place very much. We plan to go there again in 5-6 years more to view the erosion of the cliffs. Did u took the open top bus from brighton? If u havent visit Devil's Dyke, i recommend u to go there too... - KEPT

Oh shit! A Malaysian in Brighton. Is your partner studying in UoB? Maybe she met Jen before.

Nope, no open bus to Beachy Head, I think they were only running open buses to Devil's Dyke that day.

Nice blog. ;)
