Re: Duxford Diary 2023

How about once the 2 Seat Typhoon departs for Newark, Duxford should ask about Blackjack to replace it? If it's out of hours, that Colour Scheme should be preserved(somewhere)?!...........

I know it'll never happen but it's worth a suggestion........

Re: Duxford Diary 2023

Could be wrong but could it be one of the V-Bomber Cockpits Duxford recently(?), recieved? Are they in (open) storage or being worked on?

Re: Your Favourite UK Airshow Venue

It's either Ayr Low Green, (but would be great to have a static at Prestwick), or Duxford, was at BoB last year. Was somewhere near Lossie for Lossie Fest but sadly not on base, not that lucky.......

Oh how I miss Leuchars, Mildenhall, Waddington.............

Re: Anyone in Majorca this weekend 30/09/23 ??

Oh if only, that would have been a dream come true! Used to spend Summer Holidays in Puerto Pollensa across the bay when I was at School and have great memories of the Canadair Amphibians training and heading out great to see. Hope it went well?

Re: Ayr international airshow - September 2023

My only disappointment of the Weekend last was the non appearance of the Canadian Hercules which was mentioned in the Programme (twice!) mind you it makes you realise the state of the World nowadays and it was obviously Operational Commitments as per usual which prevented it's appearance...........?

I would have thought that Nicos and Ted Coningsby as well as anyone else in the same position would have contacted the RIAT Organisers to check it would be ok to live stream at the event. They no doubt will do so in future.

Re: Security

Here's a great idea to tackle the low life, get the Reds or any other Display Team to turn their smoke on full when they take off if the protestors are at the end of the runway then they'll really know what it's like to be covered.
