I presume that is a typo on your part?

Nope.. Saturday at RIAT and Sunday at Legends or vice versa. Travelling from NI I can't afford two trips so the date clash is ideal. A four day trip will cover it keeping costs down.

Darkman, I don't thik the comment was aimed at you - just that the OP text says 2015 instead of 2016 as per the header. Just XPLUMBER being picky :P

Decisions decisions
All booked for RIAT. Can't decide whether or not to do Legends this year. No kids with me this year so should make the most if it.
Really need something different to tempt me. Can amend my flights for less than £10. Arghhh.
When do updates usually start to appear?

There is no 'RIAT' clash :S

One is a proper old-school airshow, the other is not :lol:

You do the math ;)

I KNOW where me and SWMBO are going :lol:

Blackcat, you have been missing out on one of the best Airshows in the world. Once you have been to Legends, then you will most certainly return.!!
