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.

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...

Cosford 9th June 2024

Some from a challenging day at Cosford. The lighting was very variable , it was windy, cool and wet at times. Having said that, it was decent and enjoyable show. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/53782109864_816683d331_o.jpg UKAR_D750_04_DSC_9612 by Derek N.Ferguson , on Flickr https://live.static...

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.

South and West Museum Trip

A few snaps from an enjoyable few days touring around some museums, most of which I'd never been to before. Firstly Solent Sky in Southampton. A lovely collection with a very warm welcome.
