Looking well, I will be doing Cosford as my big English show this year. The RAF 100th show was too big an opportunity to turn down and I can't do RIAT due to the dates this year.

Is it worth going with the Cosford club or just a standard ticket? Has anyone been in it before and is it worth it?

Also, is there a departures day on the Monday? Might be tempted to hop off the train for a bit on my way back to the airport as it passes through Cosford.

Is that in addition to museum and SoTT aircraft, then I'll be impressed? :thumb:

Been purchased by an operator in the UK, hopefully it'll still be able to attend the show.
