Re: RIP Brexit

MP,s to busy fulfilling there own self interests ,they will never agree on what is in the country,s best interest along as it gets in the way of there own agenda. That sums it up for me. Quest for personal gain or power at any cost seems to be the driver, not what's best for us. I have to agree w.r...

Re: RIP Brexit

I know this will NOT be popular with many, BUT, having spent a LARGE part of my career in assisting UK companies to export Worldwide by working out what technical regulatary barriers apply (and "politics" play a major part in setting those!), I was, am and will be a supporter of being a part (albeit...

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

YESTERDAY(!), someone who had posted a Sunday 23rd Sept ticket on that morning but obviously didn't sell it, has now RE-advertised the same ticket again - anyone fancy buying one as a "souvenir"? :D :D

Re: An Ultra-Wide Angle View Of London………

Lovely shots! My old, but very good IMHO, ultra-wide Sigma 10-20 F4-F5.6 is one of my favourite lenses (on an APS-C Pentax! :clap:) for a whole range of shots in towns/cities/indoors - so useful & versatile. The Sigma is rectilinear, not fish-eye, so you can get "straight" verticals if you are caref...

Re: Traffic issues

Maybe not of much use but i went to the show yesterday and was stunned by the utter lack of traffic problem going in OR going out. It just flowed smoothly (compared to last time years ago where i spent 90mins+ in 2mph crawls getting in and out). I came in via Brown (M4) and parked in Green (Field o...

Now, what would YOU do in the following "circumstances"? I've been to the last few Legends, and - not being that "impressed" (unfortunately!) - decided not to go to the 2018 event. But, TODAY, I received an envelope (presumably from the FL organisers!) with a ticket and Parking Permit for FL 2018 (...

Re: Sunday 15th July - Flying Legends - 2 Tickets & Parking Permit

@EGVP Over the years, I've spent a lot of cash going to Duxford, and often "losing on the day" because I bought tickets for both of us - but then SWMBO (and sometimes both of us) wasn't well enough to come along (as well as spending a lot more on Flypast subs for many years!). Thus I don't feel that...
