Quite right. Especially when people are being asked to cough up money, Sadly this event has a history of last minute 'no shows'.


And is this a Northolt-specific problem?

We're at the behest of the operators and weather on the day - as indeed is every event. There's nothing we can do given the lean nature of air arms these days.

Nothing in life is guaranteed (I seem to remember someone saying that once)...

You either take a chance and book, hoping that Phil and his team are as successful as they always hope to be or take a chance and not book, hoping that you don't miss something nice under the lights.

Exactly. These are operational aircraft and Phil and his team do a magnificent task in assembling them in the way that they do. I can't believe anybody criticises these events, they are what they are and we are all aware that there are risks that some may turn out better than others.
