Does anyone have the serial of the display Apache. I have looked at various photos and can't see a serial, maybe it was so faint like the Puma serial. First time for me at this Airshow and loved every minute of it.

I am at the grandparents at the moment still pulling odd bits together just missing the Apache and the cockpit with letter K. If your missing anything I can help.

Here is my log from the Cosford Airshow in order of my notes on the day. I have been meaning to attend this show for years but work commitments keep getting in the way. This was my first Cosford Airshow. The weather just played ball a bit windy and one shower, it didn't stop me enjoying myself and I loved the whole day out.Thanks to everyone who made this show possible a real enjoyable day and hopefully I will get another chance to visit next year. So here's my log. I am not an expert on types and have taken the information on type from the internet to match the serials. So go easy on me. Any corrections welcome. Regards Albert. So lets go and enjoy. Included civil to be complete.

Cheers Scott and thank you, rechecked my photos and notes have edit the list above for XX968/AJ. Looks like a typing error on my part transfering my notes to the computer, than an error in my notes.

COSFORD AIRSHOW 11th June 2017 correction update

G-Z100 not civil, was GZ100 serial Military. Got carried away typing G- late last night.
plus Red Arrows added courtesy of xxAsHxx on another thread on fighter control he wasn't sure if XX311 flew or not.
XX968 AJ rather than 966 courtesy of Scott.

regards
Albert
