Re: aviationanoraks.co.uk

Aviationanoraks.co.uk stays in the 1980’s again this week, with photos from the 1987 International Air Tattoo at Fairford. I was there on the day of the downpour and remember a lot of the grass becoming a mud bath very quickly, but hey it’s a British summer! https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50836...

Re: Boulton Paul Balliol WN149 heads South!

Nice to see it has gone to a good home and will be on display.
I remember seeing this just after the rebuild project started, when it was just a cockpit section at the Boulton Paul Heritage Centre.
The next time I saw it was at Cosford 2018, where it looked impressive with the other ex-RAF trainers.

It’s back to 1985 again this week at aviationanoraks.co.uk and a small set of photos from the RAF At Home Day at Abingdon. The weather wasn’t the best, but the line up of aircraft was impressive, and I think it was the only time I ever saw Snoopy in the air. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50809...

Re: What Aviation Stuff did Santa Airdrop this year?

I received the IAT/RIAT 50th book and ‘The Fleet Air Arm & RNAS in 100 Objects’. Quite a bit of reading to be done by both of us before going back to w...

A bit of GA this week at aviationanoraks and photos from a few hours spent at Halfpenny Green back in September. It was a warm sunny day so quite a bit going on, but the main thing was it was great to be back on an airfield photographing aeroplanes! https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50600646087_9e...

Re: Airshow melancholy.

Didn’t make any shows this year either, which felt very strange as summer holidays tend to revolve around shows, fly-ins and/or museum visits. Only managed Cosford on the museum front too. First show attended was at Halfpenny Green in the 70’s but I was so young that I can only just about remember b...

That is truly sad news and incredibly short sighted by those making the decisions. Its significance to the UK may not be that great, but it is the only one we have (had).

More from the RAF Museum at Cosford this week. It’s not often that we get a chance to see under the skin of a historic aircraft, but upon our September visit they had their Messerschmitt Me410 Hornisse on display partially disassembled in the Warplanes hangar as it was undergoing conservation work. ...
