Therefore it was ...

June Airshow Catch-Up - Fly Navy, Weston & Headcorn

With the showpiece shows of the UK airshow season notably Yeovilton and RIAT around the corner, I am taking the time to focus on the excellent start we've had to the airshow season through the sunshine in June. First up Old Warden and the 3rd rendition of the Fly Navy theme, despite notable cancella...

Shuttleworth May Evening Show

This was a stunning show in all aspects and well covered already across the forum. Beautifull flying conditions and some stunning flying made up for missing the Season Premiere 2 weeks prior. The BBMF Lancaster performing exquisitely and AR501 made an impressive return. On with the images (in order ...

Re: Aero Legends Battle of Britain Show - Headcorn

Headcorn has the potential for some excellent photo opportunities if you a photographer, the sun is behind you all day and the background is uncluttered. There will be plenty of chance to see the warbirds that are present in the air with many going out throughout the day on local flights. The curre...

I don't see why not - it's been part of the Sanicole weekend for some years.. Unfortunately speaking to friends in Belgium who have go...

Spent a few hours on Salisbury Plain, courtesy of lift from Duncan. Arrived on the plain at around 10 leaving around 2 as the cloud rolled in.

Re: RIAT 2015 - The Feedback

Other than that , the showground layout is pretty sorted. Agree almost entirely with this, however I still disagree with the removal of the western loop for static aircraft and using it as the green entrance to the site. How much better would the star static items, such as the A-10's, SU-22 and SF-...

The aircraft flies above the oil spill and is converted to carry dispersal solution which is sprayed onto the spill through spray bars located at the rear of the aircraft.
