Re: Battle Of Britain 80: The Night Shoot

Considering their previous photo days with Darren Harbar were around the £150 mark for one aircraft and one reenactor, this looks like pretty good value for money :rofl: Honestly, the aircraft line-up is pretty exciting as it's not often you get a chance to see a Blenheim/Lysander/Fiat CR42 after da...

I can say I wholeheartedly agree, I've got 2 Hahnel batteries which seem to last longer than my Canon ones.

Re: Flying Legends 2020

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...

Re: Little Gransden 2019

YouTube videos can be deceiving - unless you were there, you won’t know how disengaging most displays were. If you read the full review, you would see I mentioned the Sea Fury being one of the few displays to make full use of the whole length of the crowdline. Likewise the C45 Expeditor was excellen...

Re: Duxford Battle of Britain Airshow 2019

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. I was expecting it this year, knowing how popular the event is, but I was still caught out. Likewise - no RAFAT or Typho...

Best place to watch the flying displays from with the new display line? From what I've read, either extreme end of the runway?

Around 1:30 after the battle. There’s no mad rush in the morning to get a spot by the fence line either, most visitors watch the battle and then proceed to set up for the air display.

Re: Bournemouth Air Festival 2019

well I'd personally probably rather they didn't recreate anything like that these days. They don't for ground based parades I suggest you look at battle reenactments e.g. Victory Show next week. A Buchon masquerading as a 109 and letting off some white smoke is really nothing to be losing sleep over.

Re: Victory Show, Cosby 2019

That's a shame, from what I've seen the P-47 looked fantastic operating from Cosby last year. At least we should have multiple Buchons, Spitfires and Mustangs with a Dakota and Catalina if all goes well.

Re: October 6th - Race Day and Season Finale

I'd suggest the chances of the Spitfire PR XI appearing are slim after its mishap, unless we're talking about Teichman's example.

A couple of interesting things there, but as a whole the lineup isn't very appealing for me.
