However as a aviation enthusiast I cannot help but wonder how many of those watching are as enthusiastic as me about aeroplanes.

Not many judging by those involved in throwing litter and getting drunk. I thought it was a disgrace and believe that this event should be chargeable for every spectator.

This would attract serious visitors and not hangers on looking for a free day out.
