Sad it coming to this but let wait and see, will the site be ruined, Status reduced and then the case for levelling the whole place for housing. Its only a dog but somethings like this history do matter so much to people.

Shaping up nicely, Was talking to the buddy about going over from Ireland as we have not gone for a while and the 262 and Harrier is a bit of a draw to see fly but when you add up a 3 day trip nearly €600 notes each between Ferry, Fuel, Show Tickets, Accommodation we drew a conclusion its just not w...

Re: Radom Air Show 2023 (26-27 August)

Just wondering for any one that has gone to this show is there are public transport option to get there?

Looked at IAT but for nearly 600 notes for a 3 day weekend, Ferry, Tickets, Gaf etc it is too expensive for what it is so looking at European shows now.
