A regatta's air display was cancelled after boat owners ignored advice to leave their vessels and watch from land.

Crowds booed after the announcement was made that the Dartmouth Regatta display in Devon had been called off.

A fly-past by the Red Arrows went ahead but a display by an RAF Typhoon was cancelled.

New rules after the 2015 Shoreham air disaster mean tougher restrictions on people underneath flight paths.

If they can't keep a plane in the air, then what are they doing in the Red Arrows ffs?

It was probably more to do with the fact that the crabs (RAF!) realised it was the weekend and they shouldn't really be there. The crabs only fly on Wednesday afternoons and then only on a very low risk bombing run. As the Fleet Air Arm say about the crabs and their formations ''same day, same way'' Laughing

Not sure the crabs did sports? I can remember the Red Sparrows used to pose in the bar in the red overalls chatting some bird up and one-by-one we used to ask them ''when do you qualify for proper green overalls then?''
