Blue Light Show 2004

Held at Cudworth, near Barnsley, I've been involved with the show from it's early days when a few hundred people attended to this year when a estimated 18,000 visited. This was supposed to be my last year but the marvelous support I had from the Lotus 7 Club members has convinced me to carry on. With their help we raised 8103 for the Leukemia Research Fund.

If you keep pressing it down hard they may go away.

Did I mention that we ran the car park as well.

This is the garden, from which the team sold a few burgers, sandwiches & drinks.

The Battle of Britain fly past bought a tear to most peoples eyes. The remarkable thing is the vast majority of onlookers were born after the war. These planes create very powerful images for us.

on the second pass. They went round 3 times.





That was supposed to be the last time I ran the show. However, due to the fantastic support from the members of the Lotus 7 Club I did it again the following year. That was the last time as we moved to France after the 2005 show. The show hasn't taken place since.
