Static arrangement - much, much better than previous years, good to see the varying Jags out particularly and some thought being put into representative tpes and lack of clutter
Good variety of stuff in the flying; very enjoyable, but could hear various mumbles about lack of speed and noise- GR4s and Tiff aside of course.
VC10- wow great to see the old bird in the air again, massive kudos for bagging that, dunnno what you did but why the other RAF shows couldn't, I'll never know.
Traffic in and out was good, though is it just me but did numbers seem down??
Jag taxying- nice to see one live again, excellent to see Cosford's working life represented in the programme- 2/3 Vigilant and 2 Tutor flypast next please.
Hangar and recruitment displays - always very well presented and appreciated.
Individual displays - Sea Fury, Meteor T7, our very own shaft's T3, GR4s, FX glider, P-40 - all great flying...
Static arrangement - barriers way too close, bags of room to use but still the a/c were penned in
As mentioned elsewhere, the tantalising glimpses of many more machines tucked away at the NW end that surely could have been parked on the hardstanding nearer to the barrier??
Commentary - ear splitting if you were by a speaker
Commentary - Sean "Vulcan" Maffet waxing lyrical about a display item that was never booked, not flying at the moment.... Every time he mentioned it (and it was a lot!) you could feel people looking, expecting to see it especially if they only cught the word "Vulcan". Unecessary, oh and if we're on the subject of commentating, the Nieuport that was taking such a role in the Great War demo was actually an SE5a replica....Oh and the JP T3 is painted up as the last T3 solo display scheme from 1992, not a team..
Overall another good family day out and even the weather was okay(ish)...
