In 1992, I went to an air show at the Science Museum at Wroughton, near Swindon. I hadn't been to one since I was a child and the local RAF base had their open day (RAF Acklington - now a prison I believe) . I had just bought a new SLR with zoom telephoto lens and was keen to try it out. The day turned out really well, although the day before had seen heavy rain and high winds. As well as the wonderful planes, the tail end of the weather front from the previous day led to wonderful cloudscapes, and as the evening drew in some great towering grey clouds.
