Well, our poster did say this was "probably the best little air show in the country". Seems many of you agreed with us. More than 50 emails and letters have landed on our desk. Here's a selection of the comments received. Thanks to everyone for attending and for taking the trouble to write and tell us how much you enjoyed it. If it helps, we loved it too. See you next year.
