Poster revealed.

It's a cracking design again - but my only problem is how sad it is that the centrepieces are a (not hugely successful) classic jet and borderline museum pieces. More a statement on the FAA at the moment than the Air Day.

A great poster once again, up to the usual standard for the VL show. No Museum pieces on there though as I personaly would not put FNHT into that catergory!

So you wouldn't class the Sea Harriers and Phantom as museum pieces?

Not sure I understand why wether or not they are museum pieces is really relevant? It's a great design IMO.

I'd give anything to see a SHAR in the air again. Once the lads have finished using them for the mock carrier deck, why not?

Apart from that :lol:
In all honesty, Art Nialls excellent job getting his SHAR flying just makes it more dissapointing that there are none here.

Nice to see the MIG-15 coming back again, will it be spending most of the summer in the UK as it did in the last two years ?

Had assumed it wasn't attending this year due to not being announced at the same time as the Reds and BBMF so this is great news.
