“Adventure is worthwhile in itself.” Amelia Earhart

 The town we live in is the birthplace of British aviation and has its own little airport that hosts an international air show on odd-numbered years. 

Everyone is swept along in the excitement when the air show is in town; the schools are closed and restaurants, pubs and shops are bustling with a holiday atmosphere. 

Every afternoon for a whole fortnight, we look to the skies and are treated to spectacular displays from vintage aeroplanes, display teams and state of the art passenger jets. 

And of course, who amongst us doesn’t find the prospect of a jaunt on an aeroplane greatly exciting – all aboard for an adventure!
