Re: Festival of Flight - 29th & 30th June 2024

The Friday was a strange day really as there were long periods when not much happened. It worked out fine me though, as I was able to leave home as a sensible time and get to Old Warden about 1pm.It also gave me a chance to have a leisurely look around the hangars. Some arrivals and practice display...

A return to the Co-op Live to see local lad Liam Gallagher. I'm not surprised he sells out venues like this. A great night with a great crowd. I don't know if an Oasis reunion is going to happen but frankly who needs one? https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/53825979089_4c964c45ba_b.jpg z20240627_210...

Re: Concerts 2024

A first for us on Thursday night. Our first visit to the new Co-op Live Arena in Manchester. On the whole not too bad but there are a few things that are poor and on the whole I prefer the AO Arena. However the sound quality inside was very good indeed. We had seats at the back so the stage was pret...

Re: Cosford Airshow 2024 - 9th June 2024

I thought that on the whole it was decent show. Getting in was easy and I was parked off base in the field off Neachley Lane. I was parked up by 8:45 and got straight in. As far as the static is concerned, I feel that the Jaguar thing has been done to death now. While the line-up was a good idea, th...

Re: RAF BBMF Crash/Hard Landing

If the cause is suspected to be a common factor such as fuel suppliers or a particular maintenance practice or procedure then it makes sense to ground the whole fleet until more is known.
