Re: Eastbourne

I got another reply from Airbourne's organisers today, this time with a message from the Display Director. It's very good of them to take the time to respond further. I've replied to them and copied my email below. Their initial response is in bold/italic and my reply is in normal font. "Thank...

Re: Bob Jones Memorial Airshow (Welshpool) 2015

Not sure if it when it was updated (after Throckmorton?) but website warning that tickets may sell out on the day.

Also note park and ride in operation - extra cost to park on site. Wednesday last day for postal tickets.

Re: Throckmorton Airshow 6th June 2015

Throckmorton traffic management - my take on it Good summary Andy! Only thought is that the 'organisers' may have painted themselves into a corner by having the display line where it was. I presume they couldn't have cars queing on Throckmorton Road/ Long Lane under displaying aircraft. Obviously c...

Re: Saturday and Sunday at Kleine Brogel

Great set, love the light on the last one...! If you don't mind me asking, how did you find the Tamron 150-600? Thanks Maisie - the light in the last one is a reminder that airshows finish too early in the UK! (Except OW of course). I am gradually getting there (I think) with the 'Bigron'. Quite a ...

Saturday and Sunday at Kleine Brogel

Shame about the slow start both days due to the weather and Saturday was a bit disjointed with a few breaks. Sunday once it got going seemed to flow a lot better. An enjoyable trip all the same - managed to catch the last post ceremony at the Menin gate on the way and returned with a boot full of Be...

Despite the obvious disappointment on Saturday due to the weather further South had a great time in Ayr and Prestwick at the weekend. The (not so) static event on the Sunday worked well in my opinion and it gave a great opportunity for the general public to get up close to static aircraft and then w...
