What should I look for when buying a scanner?

I'm at that stage where want and need has surfaced, I, like many aviation and photography enthusiast on here seem to be collecting more and more tech to take along to airshows, noting that some photographers are gaining an edge by knowing what's coming up ahead of the action, gaining them valuable s...

Re: Departures

Noting in particular as I have over 1200 pictures to sort through and whilst the information is fresh in my my mind today, tomorrow and the day after that, I will possibly forget bits and pieces. Thanks.

Re: P&V catering - so which is correct?

There was no complaint from me about the price, I could clearly see what it was, my choice was exactly the same as anyone else "Take it or leave it", my complaint was being served stale bread.

drifting slightly away from the original thread, but today, I purchased 1 Coffee, 1 Chocolate and 2 Sausage rolls, the drinks were palatable, the rolls weren't, I had a feeling they were last Wednesdays leftovers, That's £10 "Healthy Burgers" made of which I'll never get back, but a positi...

Having read through umpteen threads criticising admission problems, lets not forget all those others who contributed both time and effort to help deliver a fabulous show, without their efforts, the show would most certainly not go on, a massive shout out to those two girls delivering bottled water t...

Re: Traffic management on M54 ... or lack of

Took advice from other members off this board and got there early, seems the difference of a meagre 10 minutes was a fantastic stroke of luck for me, sorry to see so many people were disappointed.

Re: Biggin Hill closer to returning

Would be great to see this return, the record attendance for this show was in 2008 when 70k attended, seeing 120k over 2 days, it was very popular until the decision by Biggin Hill Airport Limited to axe it in 2010 over safety risk amongst the reasons. Look at the other airshows scattered about the ...
