Birmingham isn't the capital of the UK is it, just like its not the capital of Scotland or Wales or Northern Ireland... I think there is a hint in that....

My point was that it would be nice for one of these flypasts to actually be over some of the other bigger cities in England for a change.

Re: Red Arrows flypast of Edinburgh as part of VJ Day

Any chance of seeing them over Birmingham / Midlands ?

Or is London the centre of the World as usual ? (rolls eyes )

VJ flypasts 15th August

The Red Arrows are to fly over all 4 capital cities in the UK. I cant see any more details yet, as wondering where else they might fly low enough to be able too see them (im in Worcestershire). Mind you the weather looks well dodgy for tomorrow. Ive tried looking on the raf website, the red arrows a...

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2021 - Tickets on sale

Yes, I realised this when i thought about it later. Id rather now then hang on till as close to the date as possible, due to my work situation etc. Im sure the RIAT team normally flag up when tickets remaining start to get low.

Re: Weather forecast

We went on the washout Friday last year , though I then went on my own on the Saturday. This year we had planned to go today but the weather here in Worcs is really grey and overcast.

Re: Midlands Air Festival 2019

The problem last year with Ragley Hall was the lack of advertising. It was almost as if they just wanted it kept low key , as a practice run.
The price of the tickets was also far too expensive. A show like that is mainly going to be families who woudlnt / couldnt afford, the bigger airshows.

Re: RIAT 2019

You wouldve thought they would at looking going back to the much reduced price for Friday. Ok, the weather was poor, so maybe some didnt buy last minute tickets, but I couldnt believe how dead it was. I hoped that that would make the organisers realise people just wont buy tickets at that price. And...
