Re: Royal Navy International Air Day, Yeovilton

Lovely pics on such a dismal day. Your caption under the Harrier that says 'refuelling' is incorrect. It's taking on de-min water which is needed to enable the Harrier to hover. Refuelling us done under pressure through a large specialised fuel pipe, not a hose pipe.

2018 Yeovilton Air Day

So the countdown has begun, this years participants are heading home overhead, some even returning due to being turned away by French Air Traffic I believe!! Anyway, I was wondering about the 2018 show and in particular what date it will be? At the moment there are a couple of 'ideas' out there........

Re: 2017 Yeovilton Airday

We'll second that. Well done Yeovilton, another cracking airday. Rafales were without doubt totally awesome, why oh why didn't we buy them off the peg so to speak to stick on our new boat, rather than 'Dave'??? Excellent day, excellent weather and home in the door by 5pm, after having seen everythin...

Whilst most of us, who would in years past, be happily up our ladders today at Pyle Lane watching and taking great delight in having the odd Apache hover right over us, blasting us from our ladders in fits of giggles etc. I note that there are a dozen or so people (I can't bring myself to call them ...

Re: Airshow first timer tips

I can't see it mentioned in any of the other replies to your question, but if you have a 5 year old with you I guess you'll need plenty of loo stops, which is always the issue with Fairford. There are usually portaloos in the car parks before you get through the security at the entrances, then it'll...

Re: Less than 4 months to go, time to worry about the W word

After 'doing' airshows for more years than we care to remember, we've learnt to pack for 'all eventualities', ie from sun cream factor 30 to flippers, waterproofs to parasols, ice blocks to thermos flasks. That way, no matter what 'mummy nature' chucks at us, we're prepared. It seems to us, the only...

2017 Yeovilton Airday

Has anyone got dates yet for the 2017 Yeovilton and Culdrose Air Show's please, I hear a rumour that the Audrey Hewlen Agency may not be doing the organising, which could well be why I can't find any dates anywhere for them.

Re: Airfield closing time

Navy staff always start ushering everyone out as soon as Commando assault finishes, very tactfully and without any fuss. They like the place cleared as soon as they can as none of them can go home themselves until base is 'empty' of visitors etc!!

Re: disabled visitors

We were among the early birds last year and got parked up easily in the disabled enclosure, it was well signed and marshalled. It's all on hard standing and with several wheel chair accessible porta loos actually in the area. However, there are a few downsides to the disabled 'area'. It is quite a l...

Unlike Cosford, which I agree is brilliant for the disabled enthusiast, the car park that you will be parking in on Saturday and ...
