Re: Family Airshow - 1st August

Seems despite the drive in format, standing/sitting at the fence all day was permitted. Though seeing how torrential the rain has been a few miles away, I would probably have stayed in the car!

48Hr Photo Comp - Seaside Shows

Re: Duxford Summer Airshow - 24-25 July

They’ll be relying on the weather to space out the flying to 5:30 with that lineup It's a very similar line up to the Midlands Air Festival last month, but for twice the price. Nearly half of the aircraft listed are in two display teams, plus there's another team of 4 and...

FR24 is suggesting arrival time of 14.25 at present. It's just crossed the heel of Italy, so 2 hrs 45 minutes from there is about right.
