Re: Abingdon Air(show) & Country Show 2021

This is great move imho Abingdon may be able to get more RAF / AAC/ RN displays and even the Red Arrows for the fist time, plus possibly the Queens birthday flypast ( or elements of the flypast as they normally go to Brize to disperse I think ). Plus its on the same weekend as RAF Cosford Airshow so...

the new Wedgetail aircraft are going to RAF Lossiemouth too.
Are they? Source?
I'm sure I read it somewhere when the news of the RAF Wedgetail purchase was released, to join the P8s there as its the same aircraft type but I guess it may just be speculation / rumours

Re: The Red Arrows are moving to....

Perhaps its because Waddington ( that has a newly resurfaced runway which was one of the reasons for the airshow being postponed then cancelled ) will be empty once the Sentry / sentinels are retired and the RC135s move to RAF Fairford, the new Wedgetail aircraft supposedly going to RAF Lossiemouth ...

Re: RAF Cosford Airshow 2020 - 14th June 2020

The Qatari Air Force Aerobatic team 'the wings of Qatar' fly 6 PC21s
They are made up of ex Krila Oluje pilots that left the team a few years ago hence the display is very Krila Oluje - esq.

Anyway they fly an impressive display and could operate from RAF Cosford too!

The Danish Air Force air show at Karup
French Air Force Meeting De L'air at Cognac

Will be interesting to see what foreign displays RAF Cosford can get - will it be the 'RAF's official Battle of Britain 80th anniversary airshow'?

Re: Anybody feeling nostalgic over Scampton?

Re: Sunderland airshow 2019

Displays were a bit distant from the crowd yesterday - apart from the Swiss Air Force PC7 team that flew really close but was an adapted flat display I'm told. However there was no PA system along the actual beach area so we had no commentary for the whole day - the speakers were higher up on the ro...

Re: RIAT 2019

IIRC the 9-ship manoeuvre requires aircraft coming from crowd rear. That requires special dispensation under the regs which (IIRC) can only be given to UK teams and then only 2 or 3 hold this including the Reds, BBMF and (I think) the Blades. They don't come from crowd rear. They carried out the ma...

On the Saturday the Frecce didn't do their 9 ship break or the 9 ship cross - are they not 'allowed' to do them at RIAT ?

Re: Sunderland airshow 2019

Has a decent line up for a seaside airshow - might give this one a try this year

Where is the airshow datum for the displays?
Is the beach the best place to be to see the displays?
Is there PA along the beach too or do you have to bring your own radios to listen to the commentary?
