Re: Aero Legends 80th Anniversary Battle of Britain Airshow

Does anyone know the current status of the Lancaster? Is it airworthy? I seem to recall reading somewhere it had an issue a few weeks back?

Re: Battle of Britain Airshow 2020 - Cancelled

OK, I'm confused... So if not the rule of 6, its going to be very difficult to follow social distancing rules surely..? 'with thousands expected'..... Don't get me wrong I really hope the event happens,( we need something positive at the moment, lets face it) but I can't see why others cancel their...

NYK and Rapide MM? Am I missing something, what are they, and the NYK must be so interesting it's listed twice?

On the whole a little bit underwhelming if that's the final list, but still potentially worth the trip for the DH84 which I've yet to see.
Rapide MM, would it be Mark Millers example?

Re: Flying Legends to cease at Duxford

It's interesting that IWM seems to want a slot that regularly clashes with the biggest airshow in Europe. Flying Legends could always hold its own against RIAT, but could a generic airshow?

Re: Top 10 Airshow Moments of 2019

Both the DH9 and Ultimate Fighters have also appeared elsewhere since so I'm unsure as to why their debut at Duxford is such a big thing. The DH9 in itself should be worthy of inclusion but not because it debuted at Duxford. As for the Ultimate Fighters, four types that have all been seen before (OK...

Re: No Time To Die (James Bond trailer released)

No issues at all with the directors creating a new franchise about a different 00 agent, and a cross over with James Bond/007 is, I think, a good way to do it. If however the idea is to turn James Bond/agent 007 into a something he's not that's where people will have problems. James Bond is 007. Eve...

Shuttleworth still stands out for me as the king of the airshow circuit. I managed three shows there this year, in June, July and August. In terms of favourite UK airshow I couldn't point to just one, but my top airshow moments of 2019 would be : Mosquito / Lancaster dual taxi at East Kirkby Spanish...

Latest weather forecast is the worst ever! Surprised it's not cancelled, as they can't charge if nothing flies surely? Of course they can using the caveat "serviceability and weather permitting", like any other airshow. Besides, there is more to the event than just the flying. Unless Shut...

Great show, great content as usual. Buses worked well getting in and out of the airfield but then it all fell apart. It took an hour to get away from car park B. A let down after such a brilliant day.

I had a thoroughly enjoyable weekend at Melun. Really pleased I went. Definitely a sort of La Ferté-Alais lite type show (no complaints here!) with some wonderful classic jets present. Rafale and A-400M were exceptional as were so many of the war bird set pieces, and who can forget the C-47/P-51/Pde...

Sadly that is a very accurate review. Right on so many points. RIAT needs a major review of itself before the next show.
