Re: Swedish Air Force Historic Flight 2015 calendar

The Swedish Air Force Historic Flight will not be appearing at the RAF Cosford Air Show 2015. I assume we appear on their "calendar" because I did request a quote for them in the early stages of the flying display planning. Unfortunately the prices quoted even to just get one of the jets ...

Re: Abingdon Air & Country Show 2015- Sunday 3rd May

Fennec is a little thin as a replacement for a classic jet.

Losing the Whirlwind is a bigger blow though.

Interesting. Clearly the Collection now happy to operate it from that end of the runway, which wasn't the case last season, given the lack of a run-off area.

Re: If UKAR was in charge.

Cameron's cowardly no-show last night could well go down as one of the most expensive political own goals in recent history. Why give your opponents two hours prime time TV to savage you, with no right of reply? I imagine Tory HQ was an interesting place to be last night, and again this morning. Ed'...

Re: RIAT 2015

£12 for a programme. Full of adverts and soft photographs. All wrapped up in a cover that would shame a 5 year old with a set of felt-tips. The same price as an advance ticket for Abingdon. Hang your heads, DBH. A rip-off that can not be defended. And, if Andy Armstrong does only one thing, please l...

Re: XV208 "Snoopy" chopped up this week

Cosford was the rightful place for this airframe. Far more relevant to the collection than the current, fading, green example, which is already beginning to look an eyesore.

Re: Duxford May Show 2015

Smacks of a meeting which went along the lines of "OK, give them the Blenheim, Meteor and Mustang. That'll do. Now fill the rest up with any old guff."

Nearly double Abingdon's price, for a line-up half as good.

A lazy line-up, for crazy prices. That's Duxford for you.

Another historic airframe butchered, rather than preserved.
