Re: Aero Legends 80th Anniversary Battle of Britain Airshow

Lanc had a hydraulics issue recently I believe. No idea if it’s been fixed, but it’s appearance at Guersney airshow was cancelled and it was just the pair of fighters displaying.

Re: Battle of Britain Airshow 2020 - Cancelled

Interesting news today that Aero Legends are going ahead with their airshow at Headcorn. Part of me feels that if Duxford really wanted to host this show, they could’ve used the showcase days as trial runs, set up cones, paint lines for social distancing etc but from what I read, there was nothing.

Re: September 27 Airshow: Drive-In-Airshow (de Havilland)

NYK and Rapide MM? Am I missing something, what are they, and the NYK must be so interesting it's listed twice?

On the whole a little bit underwhelming if that's the final list, but still potentially worth the trip for the DH84 which I've yet to see.

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

I've enjoyed a few Duxford shows from the M11 end ever since the tank bank was closed but I assume the display line will have to be pushed further out now. Unless they can get away with it? Doesn't the tank bank remain open during practice displays etc before airshow days?

I've been meaning to attend this show for a couple of years now but it's always clashed with something else. Looking forward to attending this year all being well. Hopefully the BBMF fighters operate from Headcorn like in the past.

Re: Flying Legends to cease at Duxford

If it is all down to money, then I assume Duxford will simply see this as an opportunity to take over that Legends weekend in July and organise another generic show with some Spitfires, Red Arrows and Typhoon and keep 100% of the profits. Good luck to TFC and hopefully they'll be able to find a suit...

With the public Grandstand gone from this years show, where would be the best place to go on the airfield? I've heard a few say down towards the tank hangar at the bottom of the airfield in the past but was thinking about somewhere close to the American hangar. Either far end of the airfield will b...

Re: Jet Fest - North Weald 27-29 September 2019

Maybe condensing it into a single-day fly-in style event, so at least you could reasonably expect to see arrivals and departures of multiple jets, if nothing else? Though I didn’t attend this year’s event, I think you’ve hit the nail on the head. Jetfest at the moment is essentially a fly-in + stat...

YouTube videos can be deceiving - unless you were there, you won’t know how disengaging most displays were.

Is there a push to get more to use park and rides? That's one possibility IMO, to reduce traffic around the site as getting in/out of the show has been a major issue in the past.
