Re: UKAR Forum upgrade

As mentioned further up, is there a way of posting photos straight from your own computer instead of just linking from online? If not is it something that could be implemented fairly easily?

cheers and well done with the update/refresh chaps.

Re: RIAT 2020

Hi all, Just noticed the Chinese Grand Prix has been delayed/cancelled along with a large electronics/telecoms conference in Barcelona due to Coronovirus, do we think there could be a possible threat to the air tattoo this year ? China are not invited to RIAT, probably because of the virus. this ma...

Re: New French Rafale pairs display for 2020

EC1/2 performed a role demo at their home airshow at Luxeuil in 2015, it was Ramex-esq with an intercept of a TB30 thrown in, was lovely to see.

Re: Your favourite UK airshow 2019?

Whilst my only real airshows this year were Cosford and RIAT, which i enjoyed, my favourite aviation days this year have been smaller events or days at the fence. 5 Dak's arriving at Prestwick and the subsiquent nightshoot with 8 Dak's, Tornado 9 ship and retirement, Israelis at Waddington and the l...

Re: Best air show to get to from sheffield

Hi Craig, im also from Sheffield and it all depends on your expectations. Cleethorps Armed Forces day is probably the closest but is relatively small. Cosford, Southport, Blackpool are all about 2 hours away. RIAT is the best which is about 3 hours but is head and shoulders above the rest in my opin...
