Cover at the Bournemouth Airshow was again a success with members coming out to support the launching of Zulu to cover the Exclusion Zone patrols. Along with our colleagues at Poole we were able to provide cover Thursday,Friday & Sunday remaining on standby on the Saturday due to poor weather conditions causing organizers cancel flying until evening.
