I have to say that when I studied the attendees at Waddo over the years whilst manning a stall or just crowd watching it didn't strike me that many were potential recruits or people that even understood [or were ever going to] what the feck they were looking at. It was teeming with coachloads of silver and blue haired people from the Midlands and South Yorkshire with insufficient sun protection on who spent most of their day queuing for the bogs or a £6 crappy burger whilst having a ciggy on the go. They would look up when something noisy happened and say 'oo ek!' a few times then spark up another snout.
The other attendee was the overweight, greasy haired and badged up to the max social outcast aka the 'aircraft spotter'. The would have a US flying jacket or denim jacket that was covered in badges they had bought or cadged at previous airshows, be 250Ilbs and have reactolite or aviator glasses on...they had apparently spent a whole years wage on a camera lens that could choke a donkey and they hardly talked to anyone except crews manning static displays where they told them how to operate the jet better. They would take pictures of the same jets over and over again then squirrel them away with their 'special' folders on their laptops at home
