Re: Midlands Air Festival 2021

Take the test, prove you...

Re: Tiger Meet 2021

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that travel to Belgium will be allowable later this year to enjoy the NTA anniversary meeting at Kleine Brogel and Sanicole.
I suspect the relatively low number of participants in Portugal means more units will be able to attend in September... :smirk:

Starting with my favourite RIAT as a spectator... 2012. A week of FRIAT Mach 3 action, and despite the poor weather at points during the week, it is universally accepted that as a classic edition of the event in modern times. I often discuss how the first appearance of the Columbians at an Air Tatto...

Re: Zeltweg 2019 - the last one?

Were you outside the base for the arrivals days Andy? (Based on the image angles).

Contrary to your thread title, as far as I'm aware the show will return in September 2022 as per the usual 3 year planning cycle.

Also, please note that the spottersday at Kleine-Brogel has been ‘extended’ to include Monday 13 September on top of Saturday 11 September so you can see the departure of participants in the NATO Tiger Association anniversary celebration. That is great news. Do you know if there will be a dedicated...
