    11/07/16 - Farnborough Air Show

    Visited by Stu from 1100-1500. Torrential rain from 1400 curtailed the flying display to just 3 items, and flooded the static park. Hall 1 was also partially flooded and suffered a power cut.
    On the aircraft front it was hugely disappointing that of the 6 F-35s in the country, not one could be placed on static display, just a plastic model again.
