Re: Abingdon Air(show) & Country Show 2021

<plan of campaign is to get all the traffic swiftly off the road onto the airfield to your parking spot, then you queue as a 'pedestrian' to> I found exactly the opposite when I went in 2017. I never did understand why you crawled in the car for ages to buy a ticket from a less than efficient seller...

Nice of them to go months scaring people off by saying there was only one entrance and then quietly open a second!

Red Arrows timings this weekend?

Any ideas please on timings of flypasts and landing back at base this weekend, particularly Sunday? I can't find a NOTAM for their transit either.

The former LWH area will be landscaped and the airline collection will be parked there leaving the front of the hangars clear as a heritage area.
What is a "heritage area"?
Is this the end of the Tank Bank?

Re: Flying Legends 2021 - 10th & 11th July at Sywell (Merged)

The sun is never a problem at Sywell, unless it is absent. Take that from a local rather than an app! The map, pretty though it is, has clearly been drawn by someone who has never been to a show there. Fancy thinking that the public will be able to wander across the new taxiway and all around Gracel...

I was at LHR two weeks ago and thought there were four 747's left. What has happened to the penultimate pair? Also, is Kemble confirmed as the destination?

Re: RAF Brize Norton ZZ336

Thanks for location. I know there is a sign partway up that says you can't drive any further but is it generally accepted to park just before that - near the gates to the industrial compound opposite the old pillbox?
