'Ridiculous Regulations'....I think not!
It is a fact of life & a matter of deaths that the non-enthusiast & even hard-core 'forumites' expect tangible changes to be implemented post-Shoreham.
There will always be dissenters who can only see bad in all change! IMHO one can never legislate to prevent all risk. In addressing the Shoreham-factor another plethora of risk is potentially unleashed. In time we will sadly see that "fate is a cruel mistress indeed"?
Don't worry about the sun, it's rarely a factor at Abingdon. Just be grateful the team persevere to bring us this event & support an excellent cause?
PS:- Wot?... no tank hills & mud, now that's a proper problem! :wink:

One more loud thing from RAF and it's enough. Also, hope to see more of WWII planes. :cuppa:

Just a shame we'll be shooting in the sun with such gems in the flying display... :confused:

In that case, maybe it's better if day is cloudy. Without rain of course. :question:

I enjoyed seeing the Boomerang at Jersey but then was disappointed to find out its a replica, of course nobody seems to mention that!

Best idea is that you position yourself next to the First Aid tent if you go to Abingdon this year. That way, help will be on-hand for your breathing difficulties & heart-attack!
"Now listen-out, this is no Drill. The Great War Display Team with 9 x assorted replicas will also be there!" :shock:
