Re: Catalina loch Ness difficulties

We dearly need to get her returned to her home in Duxford for the winter which is where your donation comes in. As you can imagine the logistics involved are massive. In order to get the aircraft back to Duxford we need to extract her from the Loch and onto dry land as soon as possible so that the ...

Re: Battle of Britain Airshow 2020 - 18th-20th September.

I sincerely hope that the IWM management have put a lot of thought and effort into making the airshow "COVID Secure" and introducing measures to make social distancing manageable along the crowdline. It's all well and good creating the extra space and limiting ticket number but that's simply lip se...

Re: RIAT 2020

The British Air display Association has given an official statement on twitter that air displays should continue as normal as all air shows are in a large space like an airfield or seafront so there is no need to assume that RIAT will be cancelled They have done no such thing. They forwarded genera...

All the seaside airshows find funding a challenge, but it would be wrong to say all will be in the same boat as Portrush.

Re: Official costs of RAF displays and static teams 2019

These costs don't tell the full picture as most shows will have to pay hotel/accommodation costs as well for the sometimes quite sizeable support crews!

Re: Sunderland airshow 2019

Sunderland can be a challenging venue for fast jets and less agile types as it is in a bay which for the most part is occupied. That means their 230m is displaced slightly to accommodate the topography. The slower and more agile aircraft such as the PC-7 can often 'use the bay' more so they do appea...

There are still restrictions on "swept wing" jets performing aerobatics overland. The CAA have a process by which overseas pilots and aircraft can be validated. See SRG1328 and SRG1329 on the CAA website. For example, Duxford would have used these forms to permit the Breitling Jet team (wh...
