There was something about it in the notice to mariners this week too, there are 2 exclusions zones,
Blue Zone (Zone A) is for helicopter display. Exclusion times: 16.30- 17.05
Red Zone (Zone B) is for fireworks display, exclusion times 21.45 - 22.10

had the lancaster and hurricane i think? fly right over me in the wrack about 1 pm ish. lovely sound.
I went down Sunday morning and took the kids around HMS Kent. Luckily got there early and was one of the first on as the queue looked like a long wait by the time we left.
Only down side was that the rubbish was a complete embarrasment for Cardiff. In fairness to most people they had been dumping their rubbish in the bins but they had overflowed leading to huge unsightly piles around all bins. Looked particularly bad to have overflowing bins alongside HMS Kent where the visitors were queueing.
Not their responsibility but it looked so poor if I had been the Captain I would have got a few of the crew to bag it up. But responsibility falls on Cardiff County Council I guess as they have had enough events down there not to know that they needed someone emptying the bins early Sunday morning. They had someone out checking parking!
