RAF Cosford Air Show 2021 Wish List

Over the last couple of days I have been flicking through some videos of previous Cosford Air Show's. Cosford would have only just finished about a month ago, although due to the circumstances, wasn't able to go ahead. I remember the excitement of the arrivals day and the actual day itself. It got m...

Re: Arrivals

I’m pretty sure the Gripen doesnt need to validate & is cleared to display. Any practises today & yesterday were just that, a practise I hope that is the case, that would be fantastic news, was one of the displays I was most looking forward to. I just love the unique sound the Gripen makes....

Re: Arrivals

So they can't perform their display just because of some clown thought it would be a good idea to play around with a drone?!

Slovak L-410 hasn't arrived yet, no sign of a fuel stop anywhere either.

Re: RAF Cosford Air Show 2017 - [Main Topic]

Perplexing that the Typhoon had gone tech and still did a fast pass/power climb? Was it tech or not? This. Surely the last thing you want to do with a sick aeroplane is do high speed pass and power climb in front if the very public you shouldn't be displaying in front of?!!! Doesn't quite ring righ...

The displays did seem more distant than usual today and I was by crash gate 3.Those with decent lenses will be ok but I don't think J public will like it.Hopefully some will bring binoculars.The Tornado was good but I thought the Swiss put on a great display. How far was the Tornado? On the stream ...

She shouldn't resign, that's exactly the oppositions want her to do. End of the day, she still won with a vote percentage that was close to Blair and Thatcher when they had landslides and had the largest party, its just Labour also got more than anticipated.

And again.... Corbyn at yet another constituency, outside in the open with lots of people. May, in contrast, inside yet another building talking to a mere handful of people.

This Jeremy Corbyn video sums it up for me, pretty much blaming the rest of society because they didn't pass a test.

They're the party that literally punish people for success, unbelievable.

Re: General Election 2017

For balance, can you show us the costings for the Conservative's pledges? Oh wait... There was recently a budget so I assume they will be working in accordance to that. Labour just has numbers written on a page, the IFS has already said there's a huge black-hole and doesn't all add up. Of course, i...
