Butlins Skegness Chooses Airads

Two days at Skegness, promoting the Butlins resort saw AIRADS flying up and down the coastline. Unlike last week, which was cancelled due to bad weather, holidaymakers and pilots alike enjoyed two days of sunshine, along the beaches and of course, in the famous resort!

Spearmint Rhino and Friends

Where are we this weekend? I'm losing track!

There's Lincoln city centre and then there's Reading and Leeds for the V-Festivals. Weymouth Bay for the caravan park, Compton Abbas for a birthday surprise, the south coast for a water safety banner, all the way to the Isle of Wight and before I forget, Saturday and Sunday with a banner for 'Spearmint Rhino' over Brighton.

Next week it's the turn of Butlins at Skegness and more of course; lots of reasons why individuals and companies choose AIRADS for the aircraft banner messages.

"Are You The Answer" at the V-Festival

A tough day today, everywhere between Elland Road and Hylands Park for the V-Festival, Pictured. You can find the other photos we took in the photo library here.

Hylands Park, outside Chelmsford was so thick with people attending the V-festival that you could have worked across the top of them without touching the ground. We were towing a sign for a clinical trials company, which read: "ARE YOU THE ANSWER.COM"

Very high winds made all the flight more challenging than usual, gusting 37 knots across the runway, when we dropped the V-Festival banner back at Rochester, as it was too windy to drop it where we started from in Essex.

I'm afraid the video runs out of focus when I try to use the zoom feature from the aircraft!

Congratulations also to Simon and Nicole. Simon popped the question to her with an Airad banner over Harlowe today and even the Essex Radar Controller wanted to know if Nicole said "Yes".

Brands Hatch for Halfords motor racing tomorrow!

Marriage in the Air

Another happy couple this afternoon as Ian proposed to Helen at Southend Pier with an Airads banner overhead. Congratulations to both of you!

Tomorrow it's the turn of Simon and Alix over Essex, although she doesn't know it yet!

Watch out for Airads and its banner from the event sponsor, Terence Painter Properties flying over Ramsgate harbour and the races during the event week.

Everton Says "No" To Kirkby"

Over Goodison Park today for the Everton fans for the game against Wigan

Goals from Leon Osman and Victor Anichebe gave Everton an opening-day 2-1 victory at home .

Before the match Airads trailed a `Say ``No'' to Kirkby' banner over the ground. Voting among fans on the issue of leaving Liverpool is taking place at the moment.

Everton's fans may well be split over where their club will end up, but David Moyes and his team are giving them something to be proud of on the pitch. Europe beckons on this sort of form.
