The RMT Union have opted for one of our largest and a recommendation for clients is that letters be at least 5' tall to be easily read from the ground. There's sometimes a temptation to cram in as big a message as possible into an aircraft banner without realising that small type is very difficult to see fromt he ground.
Keep it short and simple and that, in our experience normally works the best!

"Clare & Anna Show Us Your Hooters!"
But what can it mean I wonder?
Anyway, 'Hooters' aside, we flew the 'Welovefestivals.com' banner too and I've loaded seventy aerial photographs of the festival from both days for you to see here on Flickr.com and a complete video will be up on YouTube in the next couple of days. Come back here to find the link or look for 'AiradsUK' on YouTube.
If you have any photos of your own of the aircraft in flight over the festival, please send them along to firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also find the story and photos on The Isle of Wight Beacon website here.
Pictured, me doing some planning at Bembridge and today's co-pilot Charles. I quite forgot to take a photo of Co-pilot Jason yesterday, so next time mate!

Today we had John propose to Grete and then surprise, surprise, Grete propose to John, followed by a final message to Jacqui to round off the day. You can see this clip here on Meridian News Tonight.
It was one of those remarkable coincidences that two people chose an aircraft banner to propose to each other on he same afternoon and I'm sure, it went down well with the 30,000 or more people milling around below.
John emailed us afterwards with this message: "Just a short note to say thanks for a fantastic day for Grete and I, One that we will never forget thanks to you guys. So glad you got me up first followed by Grete, awesome. Many thanks"!
Back to the island on Sunday then, to tow a banner for two hours over the event with the message "Welovefestivals.com".
Give us a wave!
