Re: Duxford Battle of Britain Airshow- 22nd & 23rd September

Presumably as the show has a B.O.B. theme, I hope we see a return to the skies of the three Hispano. Was very jealous that they were flying together last month and couldn't make it.Going to be interesting what formations will be created with such an array of aircraft to choose from. Might also be in...

Re: Duxford Battle of Britain Airshow- 22nd & 23rd September

Yes as I had really worked out, as stated the RAF editions were in the original post but probably not actually confirmed. Lancaster, Red Arrows and Typhoon 4 were the only RAF aircraft listed in the original IWM list. Just checked. ;) Brian Hi Brian. Again all I was pointing out was the second thre...

Hi Brian. Yes as I had really worked out, as stated the RAF editions were in the original post but probably not actually confirmed. Can't believe this line up, too many of my own favourites there for me to pick any real stand outs. think there is something there for everyone. :thumb: Well done IWM a...

'Big flying announcements' coming soon, according to the IWM. :thumb: Sorry MRTT, have we had the big announcement as in what was in the original list of RAF aircraft now confirmed or is there still more to come. Very very impressive already but your comment was after the list with these already li...

Maybe not for the display but the Aguila commentator deserved some sort of aware for absolute outright enthusiasm. No idea what he'd had for breakfast. Very high energy display from the commentator.
Completely agree with you :D

Re: RIAT 2018 Awards

I take it the awards are voted on by a panel from RIAT. After attending from Thursday to Monday I would have to differ with my views on more than half of the winners.
This is obviously only my view and everyone will see different things in each display. :halo:

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2018 Discussion Thread

Shows are now more responsible for "secondary crowds" when people don't take notice of road and path closures what can they do. I know, :'( why don't they abandon the display and send all the people who have paid to allow the show to go on in the first place home. Take a hint, post Shoreham they are...

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2018 Discussion Thread

I was at Duxford the year that Bush Senior (I think) was in the UK. Towards the end of the flying display there was a brief pause as the commentators announced that there was close overflight they needed to let pass. In the distance quite well away from us we could see a group of helicopters. It was...

Re: Abingdon Air & Country Show 2018- 6th May

Great day at Abingdon, Drove straight in and parked with no traffic (pre booked). Left with no traffic again. Good content and weather was best in years. Well done to the organisers for a super day. https://farm1.staticflickr.com/943/28065525038_4fa6af4afb_b.jpg bbmf.01 by Keith Attfield , on Flickr
