Re: Vintage Air Day Sun 6th Sep

That was my third event at OW this year and somehow have managed to more or less park in the same spot for all 3 (and that isn't a bad thing). The Stampes stood out, one did appear to get a little lost on one turn though, the light for the Spitfire and Hurricane was beautiful, did any one else notic...

Re: US trip costs

Was in Arizona, California and Nevada January, one thing to watch out for on hire cars is the lack of sat nav, I had to download the android app and link to the car. What I didn't release was that as I'd got power saving set on phone, the dam thing would turn itself off. ( Usually at a junction). Ma...

Re: Worst Airshow

I Had forgot about Seawings 2000 traffic at Southampton, heard afterwards it was taking 4 hours to get out car park on to road. I was parked at back of car park and noticed two or three cars driving the wrong way so followed them, a driver got out of one and removed the padllock on a barrier. I had ...

Worst Airshow

Taking a lead from the best airshow thread, what has been the worst or most disappointing show you've attended, probably some of the Cosford shows for me with traffic etc.

TLE, not aircraft related but how can they charge £85 to go to a rally school to see 4 cars for the afternoon when you can go the WRC for 4 days for £99?
