Re: FRIAT 2017

Thanks chaps, I agree the beer pricing is far more acceptable than the food!

Probably do what we usually do, eat at the campsite, fast all day and get something filling on the way back to Totterdown.

Re: FRIAT 2017

I wonder how ridiculous the price of the beer will be, we are after all a captive audience!

Re: Shuttleworth Classic Evening Air Show June 2017

Lovely shots in great light.

Well done.

I agree there is nowhere quite like Old Warden for access and atmosphere.

Apparently it has an experemental display and HUD, so can only be solo-ed from the rear cockpit and the fin is 9 inches taller!

The new wing allows for a higher alpha loading and the turning is much improved.

Occaisionally they will take one low through the Loop, but usually stay at medium height and often out over the sea.

But it seems you are NOT!

U/C failure after Duxford display is being bandied around.

Re: BAe Systems Warton 24th May 2017

Great shots as usual Mickey, shame you've used up all of the wonderful light and had to use the ordinary stuff like the rest of us.


Glad you are coping well with the changes up there.
