Here some info http://www.visitsouthend.co.uk/whats-on/southend-air-festival.aspx Weather is looking promising. I usually end up near the Westcliff end shooting with the sun behind me toward the pier. Plus this is where the skydivers usually land and meet the mayor. This years it seem to be starting a bit later and ending later. Probably helps with traffic. But this does clash with the Crystal Palace event in London.
