Re: RIAT 2020

I hate to dash anyone's hopes of the show going ahead, but I've been told today by a very reliable source that DBH have told the printing company to halt printing on RIAT 2020 tickets etc.I was browsing the RIAT website today and got the message 'we are not here right now' .I would love RIAT 2020 t...

Re: RIAT 2020

I'm not intending to be a happy clapper/RIAT fanboy or whatever they get called on here. I agree that all the enclosures are a tad pricey! I'd love things to be cheaper, but as someone who takes the family to RIAT, this family enclosure is a day out for the kids, inside a day out for me. We normally...

That's the first time I've ever been called middle class. :lol:

Re: RIAT 2020

For the first time since 2010, I don't need the Mrs permission, to book RIAT tickets! I dragged her and the kids along in 2014 to 2018 and normally ask her to book tickets in May/June. She saw the email yesterday about the new family enclosure and told me she will book tickets this weekend. Top stuf...

Re: Duxford Battle of Britain Airshow 2019

Sorry to be "that guy" but, looking at the weather forecast tomorrow, would we imagine most participants will display? I'm taking the family, who aren't chuffed with the prospect of another Duxford washout. Depends on cloud base and visibility. Last year the Saturday was wet but most thin...

Re: How will you be enjoying the show?

Just Totterdown for us this year, Thurs to Mon. It will be the first time we haven't been into the show but we had such a great time at Totterdown last year we decided to give it a miss. On reflection I don't think we'll see the best of the Harriers, F35 and helos so we'll be back in next year. Ric...

Don't forget the Sunday club are getting the "last display of the Reds" before they go to the States! Friday and Saturday aren't.

Re: RIAT 2019

I'd read multiple websites saying there was nothing so I didn't stay to till the end. What a great movie that was! There was something at the very end of credits, something very smal...

Editing software advice?

Hello guys and girls, I think its about time I looked for a better editing software. I've been using Picasa 3 for years, while flirting with the idea of purchasing something better. There are so many types to chose from, with lots of different versions of each type. So rather than risk buying the wr...

I'm looking at the positives in this Red Arrows tour. The UK should support the US airshow scene more often, in my opinion. How much has the ACC sent to the UK in the past 11 seasons, since the RAF last returned the favour?

The MV-22 was dismissed!


The MV-22B is the USMC Osprey, you mean the CV-22B.
