Re: Flying Legends to cease at Duxford

Sounds like a pee poor decision taken by a group who make counter-intuitive decisions as a matter of course. If they are indeed envious of the bastardisation of Hendon, that really does say it all. Why have the real thing to show to the public when you can have a cardboard cutout, dodgey voice actin...

Very sad - always liked seeing the Saab 105 display - a charismatic and punchy little type that was always very well flown.

Re: Reds & Patrouille over Heathrow

Are the Reds currently at home and practicing at Scampton?

Thinking about a trip up tomorrow but can’t find much online.

Appreciate these NOTAMs have been issued but I must say I’m not particularly au fait with them.

Re: Will air shows be cancelled because of coronavirus

The media are doing what the media always do, but writing it off just because you reckon it's not actually as bad at seasonal flu and you know better than all medical experts in the world is equally as, if not more, moronic.

True, but I’m treating it as a nice long weekend away in the sun (hopefully) with the added bonus of an Airshow and the chance to see some rare types.

They will return, operational tempo has meant they can't display as a pair this year so decided to display a solo under the guise of the Wildcat Demo Team rather than use the Black Cats name.

Re: RIAT 2020

Nice to see the RN out and about.

Nice to see a Wildcat flying, but I have to say last year’s wasn’t the most inspiring display.

Bring back the Black Cats, always thought they were superb.
