Re: Duxford Summer Airshow - 24-25 July

Surely mass spits are more likely at the BOB show....

I doubt the displays will be added to much, after all if they have lots up their sleeve wouldn't they announce as soon as poss to boost sales?

Re: Flying For Fun - 17th July

Forgot to mention the only downside to the day for me which was the total closure of the M25 Infront of me, leading to a mad scramble to leave the motorway and a cross country drive to pick up the A1 at Stevenage!

Re: Flying For Fun - 17th July

Yes I think I have only ever watched the Eds in gloomy dusky light, normally this is because the winds often die down later in the evening but on Sat the windsock seemed limp most of the day so a pity they could not fly 30 mins earlier. This was my first airshow in nearly 2 years and my goodness the...

Re: The Euro 2020 (in 2021) Thread

It was scandalous that ITV used Matterface last night, for me the best on ITV is Clive Tyldsley and on BBC Guy Mobray is the best of an average bunch. However the droning Danny Murphy and Jenas are awful...

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

That was my initial thought but there were at least as many centres with dates available as when I booked my first jab and I've actually now booked at a centre much much closer to home that previously wasn't available to me. I guess it all depends how long you are waiting for the 2nd jab. Moving it...

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

Having to cancel existing before rebooking is a terrible system, what if you cancel only to find something much later instead of earlier. A shambolic system. I decided to stick to my original date for second jab, too risky otherwise.

I say go ahead if you can, it's outside after all so lower risk, and things like this can be a real tonic for kids and parents alike.

The sad fact is that Boris' best, as has been proved in every political position he has ever held, is woefully short of the standard required.

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

I suppose the question is, what is an acceptable level of death? 10 per day? 20? 100?
What if that number were to include a close relative?

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

Tommy you are spot on re Boris J and his incompetent government. He has made one poor judgement after the other and has cost many thousands of lives with his dithering and lies. I find it amusing when people say they are just 'fed up with it all now'. I'm sure those being bombed in WW2 by the Luftwa...
