Re: Request time and some fun. RIAT 2021

The one aircraft I would actually love to see at RIAT in 2021 is a C5 Galaxy. I have never seen one as well as the return of the Couteau Delta team.

Re: Duxford Shows: 2020

In a normal airshow season, when would announcements begin for Duxford's September show? I would assume after Legends?

Anyway, Catalina is self confirmed. However, this was probably post-lockdown and cancellation of most shows.

Re: Duxford Shows: 2020

Even if its a reduced show with a few hours flying I will be there. its a 400+ mile trip for me just to get there. I'm just happy to be able to get away for a weekend.

Re: RAF Cosford Airshow 2020 - CANCELLED

I was due to fly over to London first for the Trooping of the Colour and then train up to Birmingham for Cosford today. Makes me sad thinking about it. Bring on 2021!

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

Last weekend and today my hometown is like airshow day here with the town packed out. No distancing, no regard for others. Large crowds of teens gathering and drinking in public.

Yeah, this will bring us a 2nd wave.

Re: Football

So Liverpool will finally get the title that they deserve this year, but why do I feel it will be a hollow victory for them. PS I would also feel the same if it was my team that won in this way. It just doesn't feel right. As a Man Utd fan since the mid 80s, I'd rather Liverpool win the league this...

Re: RIAT 2020 - CANCELLED

They have. In fact, most airshows, hotels and airlines have handled this situation very well. Everyone of them were open, honest and made a clear statement. Except for a certain Orange and White Airline.

I have to admit, I was a bit worried about losing the grandstand seat.

Re: Duxford Shows: 2020

Says on website after checking there will be one. I'll be there for 7:30am as that's when train gets into Cambridge. Last time I was at Duxford, no queues for bus at all and only a handful on it at that time at that time of the morning.

Re: Duxford Shows: 2020

Looks like it is a very possible no go for September. Duxford would probably fall under same category of sporting event crowds (mass gatherings)

I'm guessing tomorrow is going to be the day we find out somewhat if Duxford goes ahead or not in September. Government is going to lay out a road-map on the way forward. If their roadmap does not have a return to normal/allowing large events before end of September it will be game over for 2020 I t...

How about a guest of honour in Captain Tom Moore? providing all this has cleared up it would be a brilliant gesture given his achievements.
