Re: Flying Legends 2021 - 10th & 11th July at Sywell (Merged)

Well I was originally quite keen on the idea of Legends at Sywell. But if its on GP weekend then, like GeeRam, I'm snookered coming from the South West. Should have gone for later in July.

Thank goodness we have a new younger generation of thinking enthusiast - exemplified by Huw Hopkins - capable of appreciating what it REALLY takes to place flying vintage aeroplanes in front of the public. I’m afraid that staying home and dusting your die-cast models and slides just doesn’t compare...

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...

Re: International Sanicole Airshow, 13 & 15 September 2019

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.
