What is with all the ridiculous petty 'I'm in the know and you're not' comments in this thread? Try and keep it informative for those of us that would actually like to see through the rubbish, thanks in advance!

Re: Biggin Hill 2017 Arrivals day..

Great fun! Like Sam said, not the busiest arrivals day but that left plenty of time to catch up with people.

Well worth the money and hope it's put on again next year.

Re: 150 - 600mm lenses - Which One?

I use the Sigma 150-600mm contemporary lens on a Canon 80D. Absolutely amazing lens, not too heavy (easy to handhold all day at an airshow). Had it for over a year now, by far my favourite lens that I've ever used. Definitely sharper than my Canon 70-300mm L lens. However when shooting at full 600m...

Is there any clear indication of what's actually displaying yet? I really want this show to be a success but I'm struggling to understand why there's a total lack of information with just four days to go and tickets still to sell.

Re: Should the UK look at purchasing Ospreys?

If I remember correctly, there was a rumour doing the rounds that the MoD were interested in the Osprey as a special forces platform. They spent a considerable amount of time with 7 Squadron at RAF Odiham about 18 months ago I think.

Rob, knowing Blackbushe and the area very well, I can't understand how a flying display is going to work here. Do you have any diagrams of the display area? Tom, from what I gather, the line is going to be over the northern side of the airfield with security in place to ensure no public are in the ...
