Re: Duxford Summer Airshow - 24-25 July

On catch up, just seen that the zones have gone and DUX is fully open.

This is great news of course, and whilst I would now buy a ticket...

...I can't! The car had a major ABS fail, so car-less for possibly two weeks :-S

Re: Duxford Summer Airshow - 24-25 July

So, if folks are restricted to zones, what happens along the flight line?

Surely every zone if mixing… Unless that’s zoned also.

Re: Duxford Summer Airshow - 24-25 July

As much as I've missed airshows and visiting Duxford, the zone restrictions and cost mean this one is a no-go. I'm sure it will sell out though.

I hold on hope that the September show is back to "normal"... Whatever "normal" is now.

Re: RIAT 2021 Participation and Discussion Thread

Despite what I've said before, and despite feeling that it is inevitable, the reality still hits quite hard. I do hope that some airshows can take place this summer. I'll be rolling everything over and I sincerely hope that 2022 is much better and the team get a chance at creating the special event...

Thank you for the endeavour and the attempt DBH. Stay safe and roll on 2022 - hopefully.
It does.

I think mass events will only return when everyone has had two jabs.

Re: IWM Duxford Transferring Land Warfare Hall Contents to Pima?

I like the Land Warfare Hall, I know it’s not aviation and Duxford related, but it’s another reason I’ve kept going back to DUX for 20 years. I really hope it isn’t for the chop. Then bypass the people making the bad decisions and write to the trustees. If it’s true, and I’ll believe it when IWM ma...

Re: Battle of Britain Airshow 2020 - 18th-20th September.

Absolutely gutted.

I was hopeful, especially as it drew closer and closer.

But with the recent Government guideline revisions, I am not surprised at this.

Re: IWM Flying Festival

My refund has now appeared on my card. I’m not sure what to do now, as I’ve changed our accommodation for the September show, and paid a bit more for it :-s I did this as I’d originally requested transferring tickets to the BoB show. Thinking about it, I really can’t see any show happening this year.

Re: IWM Flying Festival

Hi all. I had clarification from IWM. They are issuing a refund for the Festival of Flight, I think they haven’t the skills or tech in place to transfer to another event. The FAQ on the website is going to be changed. They suggest purchasing tickets for the September show separately. I’m in two mind...

Re: IWM Flying Festival

Hi all.

I followed the previously supplied link to transfer my tickets to the September Airshow.

However, I've just had an e-mail from IWM stating a refund will be given. Has anyone had a similar message, or confirmation of transfered tickets?

Cheers.

Re: RIAT 2020 Wishlist

Sorry, got more chance of having the Death Star do a fly-by than seeing any Russian stuff appear :-S

Would be great to see a Tonka flying, and the presence of a A-10 and B-1.

As long as the weather is fine, I'm not fussed about what shows up really.

Re: Duxford BoB - Saturday

Great shots mate :-)

Judging by the P-47 pic, I must have been behind you!

Opening the flight-line at the end of the day is a great idea, it might help with traffic. It took me 45 minutes to get out of the car park.
