Re: Abingdon Air(show) & Country Show 2021

What a superb superb show yesterday, absolutely loved being back at a proper airshow. Nice to see a bit of support from the RAF for a change. The warbirds was the stars though, the Mustang was my highlight. Took an age to get out of the car park but I really don’t mind as it was such a great day. We...

Re: Abingdon Air(show) & Country Show 2021

Can I follow them to gate B as that’s the biggest parking area? "if you got a Gate A ticket, go to that one - Gate B - go to that one" It's not like they're 30 miles away from each other. Park up, phone the other party and find somewhere to meet. Job done. Whilst I’d usually agree with you, my Nan ...

Great, so I can’t park with the rest of my family? Can I follow them to gate B as that’s the biggest parking area?

Re: Abingdon Air(show) & Country Show 2021

Seems a stupid system as my sister bought separate tickets to me and has been directed to gate B, I’ve been directed to gate A.

Re: Season Premiere 21

Have to say despite the day being enjoyable I don’t think it reached the dizzy heights of the price of tickets for quality, the tickets are a lot and then it’s an extra £10 for the parking space, basically with fuel it was a £150 for an afternoon air display 3 hours long. Have to say though all the ...

Yes it sounds like they’re having real issues with departures, the phantoms are shutting down to refuel I believe.

Rafale?


I’m a big fan of the Rafale display but I think the Finn just edges it.

I guess if the Turkish KC doesn’t stick around you can kiss goodbye to seeing the F4s depart Monday. Why? The Soloturk jets departs every year on the Monday and the KC-135 drags them in, departs, then comes back on the Monday and departs with them again. They usually leave on the Tuesday. Don't del...
