Swansea is looking forward to spending a couple of days legitimately drinking cans of booze outdoors like teenagers in a park, as the airshow returns this weekend.
People of all ages and class will congregate along Swansea Bay and drink until they pass out under a cloud of red, white and blue.
Port Tennant man Pete Bowen said: “Me and two mates are going to go and have a picnic and watch it on the beach at the bottom of Sketty Lane.
“I’ve never had a picnic before, but I think our bag of Bombay mix and two crates of Strongbow Dark Fruits covers it off.
“I’ll be RAF on Monday.”
Sketty Park resident Theresa Connell said: “I like the airshow because it’s the only time where it’s “acceptable” to be in sole charge of my kids while drinking loads of Oranjeboom.
“I’ll feign some interest when my kids ask me about why a chinook has more than one propeller, but then I’m checking out for the day.
“It’s a wonderful event for the children, and I’ve taught my eldest how to roll joints so there’s something for the whole family.”
Married Killay couple Cheryl and Rob Gray said: “Last year we drank so much gin we passed out by Ripples on Saturday evening and were woken up by a Typhoon fighter plane on the Sunday lunchtime!
“It was great fun, not only did we spend a romantic evening unconscious under the stars, but we also managed to keep our spot for two days running.”
