Re: Duxford Battle of Britain 2020 - 18th - 20th September (3 DAY SHOW)

With the public Grandstand gone from this years show, where would be the best place to go on the airfield? I've heard a few say down towards the tank hangar at the bottom of the airfield in the past but was thinking about somewhere close to the American hangar.

Re: Duxford Battle of Britain 2020 - 18th - 20th September (3 DAY SHOW)

Sea Fury T.20 WG655, which was listed for the September show sadly crashed this afternoon after the Duxford showcase event. Pilot and passenger only sustained minor injuries but aircraft looks very bad.

Re: Duxford Battle Of Britian Airshow 2020 (Wishlist)

That's a shame on both. I have only gotten to see a Seafire twice in recent memory at Bray in Ireland in 2016 on both days, and the paint scheme was beautiful. G-BUAR I believe it was.

Re: Duxford Battle Of Britian Airshow 2020 (Wishlist)

With the BBMF and Reds confirmed I am pretty happy with that. 11 Spitfires so far (12 if BBMF do the Dowding formation) so hoping for a good few Hurricanes being added as well as the Ultimate Fighters display team. Would be great to get the 2 Seafires added to that list. Gnat's would be a very welco...

Re: Duxford Battle of Britain 2020 - 18th - 20th September (3 DAY SHOW)

Don't think they have officially. A paper covered their PDA and said about a display at Duxford coming up. However, the quote was from a photographer who sent them photos, he said "I think they are going to display at an air show in Duxford in September and they can now display if there are royal ev...

Re: Duxford Battle of Britain 2020 - 18th - 20th September (3 DAY SHOW)

I think so, they said pilot schemes for events of various crowd sizes (for sports) from August. I think airshows could fall into that. Though they are allowing indoor crowds with social distancing from August too for theatres and concerts so outdoors should be ok too? The October timeframe relates t...

Re: RIAT 2020 Cancelled

Interesting... I already have my tickets rolled over so I might actually add the Friday on this year.

What enclosures are usually open on Friday? I assume just FRIAT and Grandstand/Garden?

Re: RIAT 2020 Cancelled

I will be doing the same and rolling mine over and hoping for the best in 2021.

I got a cracking top row seat in the public grandstand right above the isle, so no seats in front of me. Don't want to give that up at all :D

Re: RAF Cosford Airshow 2020 - Sunday 14th June 2020

Thanks, got it eventually, had to click something like 'general inquiry'

And I think you need to let them know what option you want in the submission form. But I am not quite sure.
