Re: Jersey 2019- 12th September

No Skyraider then :-( guess I should have waited until the official list came out, i was going by the list here. https://www.military-airshows.co.uk/ven24.htm
Still, at least there is 1 aircraft I have not seen yet, the Sabre.

Re: RAF Cosford Air Show 2019 - Sunday 9th June 2019

I'm happy about the Chippies! I always love it when theres a Chipmunk at an air display becuase it gives me the opportunity to say " I learnt to fly in one of those" of course thats a a bit of an exaggeration" but it sounds better than I had a few minutes at the controls when I was an...

Bit early to be talking about the next Cosford but I asked Historic Helicopters if they might be displaying their Wessex at Cosford, and they said they would next year so thats quite exciting!

A rare visitor to my local airport

And after it departed we got another interesting one come in, well interesting for this airport at least, only the second time a Airbus A321 has been here, I went up in the morning to watch the departure. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4588/3...

Couple of pics of George H.W. Bush and Hawkeye enquiry

Took a trip to see the aircraft carrier yesterday, I was mainly interested in the Hawkeyes as I have not seen that type before, in one of my images I notice one of them appears to have a slightly different radome, is this a different Hawkeye version or just down to the angle of the radome? https://f...

Greece

Hi, does anybody know when the Hellenic air force are retiring their Phantoms. I really hoped to get a photo of one airborne at RIAT on departures day but was at the wrong end of the runway so all i got was a blurry image of the back end of a Phantom. I am considering a trip to Greece next year, it ...

Really I just wanted to thank some of the staff at this years show for helping me. I have autism, well it's Aspergers but thats a mild form of autism, a series of events led to me becoming a little distressed on departures day, which caused me to nearly have a meltdown.
