This is Jesse and he is five years old.
He's at home, making paper aeroplanes.
-What sort of plane are you making?
-A jet plane.
Together, they make three planes.
Jesse, shall we have a competition?
-Shall we go outside and see which goes the furthest?
Today, Jesse is going to do something new for the first time.
But what will it be?
This is Jesse's memory box.
It helps him remember all the exciting things that have happened.
See if you can remember what goes in it today.
They've come outside to see how far they will fly.
-Jesse, who's going to throw the furthest?
-I think it will be me.
-All right, let's see, then.
That's not as far as Jesse's.
Good try, but Jesse won.
-Go and get the planes.
Jesse, we've got a surprise for you.
-Would you like to go to the airshow and see planes fly?
Wow! To an airshow?
An aeroplane is a vehicle that can fly through the air
and is powered by propellers, or jets.
Any machine that can fly is known as an aircraft.
There are many types of aircraft, like planes, helicopters,
balloons and airships.
The person who flies the aircraft is called the pilot.
An airshow is an event where lots of people come to see the pilots
and their aircraft either on the ground or flying in the sky.
Before the airshow, Jesse has come to an air museum
with his family to see some old planes close up.
I can't wait to get in that big one!
Inside the hangar, there are lots of old planes on display to look at.
Wow! There are so many planes in here!
-Look at that one. Does it look really fast, yeah?
-What about that one over there?
-That's a Sabre Knight.
It was part of an American display team.
What else can you see, Jesse?
Look at that plane. Can you see those blades?
-They go really fast, yeah?
-What do you think?
-Faster, like this.
Wow! Jesse, your arm's like the propeller! You're going to take off!
Wow! Look at this plane! It's really old. It's from World War II.
It's called a Gloster Meteor.
-How old is this plane?
-Oh, it's over 70 years old.
They look around the rest of the museum and see some jet engines
and other vintage planes.
Oh, look! Helicopters!
-Do you know you can go in the helicopter?
-Are you going to fly the helicopter, Jesse?
-I bet you'll be good at that.
-Are you excited?
-Hurry up, I'm going!
Right, so, where are we going to go?
I'm flying to...China.
China? All right. What happens when you pull this to yourself?
It makes it go up.
When you push it forward, what happens?
It makes it go down.
Have a great trip to China, Jesse.
Next, Jesse's mum takes him to see inside a big passenger aeroplane.
They go down the aisle to the cockpit,
where the pilot flies the plane.
You're in the cockpit now.
Wow! Look at all those controls!
This is the pilot here, this man here.
And this one is what they call the first officer, or the co-pilot,
who assists the pilot to fly the aeroplane.
Those throttles make the aeroplane go faster and slower.
-And that's what keeps the aeroplane in the air.
-How fast does it go?
This plane will fly about 506 miles an hour.
It's as fast as that.
Now Jesse has seen the old aircraft, it's time to head to the airshow.
The first thing to go in Jesse's memory box is an aircraft cockpit.
Jesse and his family have arrived at the airshow.
What are we going to see today, do you know?
We're going to see an aeroplane.
Mum was saying we're going to see some planes
flying the colours of the rainbow and they've got several colours?
-And then they've got smoke from the back, like jets, really fast.
Wow! Jesse, there's loads to see.
Make sure you stay close to Mum and Dad, Jesse.
There are lots of people here.
Jesse and his mum and dad speak to a police officer
who helps children if they get lost.
So all you need to do, if you get lost, is you find a police officer,
show us the wristband and we'll get you back to your parents.
-Yeah. Thank you.
-Thank you very much. Bye-bye.
-Thank you very much.
An identity wristband is a good idea.
The second thing to go into the memory box is a policeman.
The airshow display is beside the sea,
and there's lots of people watching.
The first aircraft they see is an Air Ambulance helicopter.
The Air Ambulance flies to help people who are sick or injured.
-I can see it!
While they wait for the next one,
Jesse and Dad fly about like aeroplanes.
Then they get a big surprise.
-A loud jet flies over.
-Jesse is very excited.
The jet zooms away and another plane with two propellers flies over.
Hey! The lights!
-Can you see it?
Next, they see a stunt plane with a smoke trail
doing all kinds of tricks.
Jesse, you can fly around and around like the stunt plane.
All that spinning around would make me dizzy.
The next plane does a massive loop-the-loop.
Can you see what's on the wing? There's somebody waving!
Wow! I can see him! I can see him!
-Can you see that?
-Yeah, I can see him!
They are fastened on with a special harness so they don't fall off.
Then a red and white stunt plane does some amazing tricks.
-Did you see that?
It tumbles through the air and flies off.
The third thing into the memory box is a stunt plane.
They walk further along the promenade and find a vintage plane
called a Spitfire, that you're allowed to sit in.
Look, Jesse, another vintage plane like the one we saw in the museum!
Can you pretend you're flying it?
I'm coming by!
You just looped-the-loop like a real Spitfire pilot!
Around 80 years ago, Spitfires were used in the Second World War.
They flew in a famous battle called the Battle of Britain.
Now they're called vintage planes, as they're old and only a few still fly.
There are lots of things to look at at the airshow.
Jesse and his dad have spotted the green helicopter
they saw flying earlier.
This is the Air Ambulance helicopter.
So it helps people who have been hurt in places
where they can't reach on foot or with a car.
See how we've got the pilot and co-pilot in front
and behind here, you've got medical supplies
to help anyone who's been hurt.
Just as they climb down, a display team called the Red Arrows
are putting on a performance.
They shoot up into the sky.
Then fly low down over the sea.
They fly very fast in formation.
And make exciting manoeuvres.
Weaving in and out of each other as they fly past the crowd.
-This is so cool!
-Can you see what they're doing?
I can see them!
They finish with a move called The Detonator.
Those planes were very fast.
The fourth thing into the memory box is the Red Arrows' aircraft.
-Did you have fun today?
-As they walk home, Dad has one last surprise.
-So let's see how many Jesse's going to catch.
-Loads of bubbles!
What a fun end to a great day!
Today, Jesse went to an airshow. Do you remember what happened?
Let's have a look in his memory box.
First, Jesse went to an aircraft museum and saw inside a cockpit.
Then he met a policeman on the way to the airshow
and got an identity bracelet.
Next he watched some stunt planes doing tricks.
Finally, Jesse saw the Red Arrows display team.
Today, Jesse went to an airshow.
There's a first time for everything.
