This was my first air day event was suprised they didn't use the Landwarfare end to park people?
This was a very strange decision.

Personally I would have gladly paid an extra tenner to park on the airfield side.

Re: Old Warden Race Weekend Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd October

Totally agree LN.

£39.00 is fine for an airshow you're excited for, but this really isn't that, for me.

Not a complaint - and I hope they sell out; but I won't be attending unless something fantastic is added to the list.

Re: Duxford Battle of Britain Airshow 2021 - September 18th & 19th

Getting excited for this show now, only a few days to go!

Wondering if the Lanc will make it, and also if we will get a display by the Ultimate Fighters.

Its been two years since my last Duxford airshow!!

Re: Sanicole Sunset Airshow 2021 (BE)

Those F-5 shots are just beautiful.

Re: Duxford Battle of Britain Airshow 2021 - September 18th & 19th

This show is marketed as THE show to see Spitfires and other various warbirds. Except the Strikemasters and Typhoon (both which appeared at the summer airshow) what jets exactly were people hoping to see? I do understand that, and i'm not complaining - its just that with none of the major shows in ...

Re: Duxford Battle of Britain Airshow 2021 - September 18th & 19th

I am just primarily interested in fast jets. Unfortunately I couldn't get to the last DX show and you may have noticed jet shows have been rather thin on the ground in the UK this year!

Fingers crossed next year will be better.

Great news. Hopefully there will be other (cheaper!) events in the future :)

There was a fantastic little airshow at Bentwaters about ten years ago... I keep dreaming about that returning.

Re: Bentwaters Cat to roar!

I get what you mean Alber, but ultimately if its too much for an afternoon out and one jet, its just too much. I would love to come along, but the thing about money is that you can only spend it once - and i'd probably be more inclined to put this in the kitty for airshow tickets next year. I hope y...

Re: RAF Cosford Air Show 2021 - UPDATE: CANCELLED

I spoke to the Typhoon team at Bournemouth and one of them claimed that Cosford airshow was 'back on', but the Typhoon would not be appearing.

I was pretty sceptical, of course, but I wouldn't be surprised if there is some display flying of some kind. Time will tell I guess!

Re: FRIAT price increase

Vaccinations are only going to increase between now and then, and given some of the incredible airshows going on throughout Europe *this* year, I am somewhat optimistic.

I really don't care if we're in store for a slightly smaller RIAT - if the airshow happens i'll be over the moon.

Re: Bournemouth Air Festival 2021

Visited Bournemouth for the first time for Thursday and Friday and had a really enjoyable time. It was a long journey for me (nearly 4 hour drive) and I would never have normally considered it, but being unable to get to any other outings of the Typhoon or Red Arrows this year, I decided to make the...

Re: Malta International Airshow, 25 & 26 September 2021

Would have loved to go to this show. Got a bit put off by all the Covid testing requirements... not sure I could afford a ten day stay in Malta, or a quarantine hotel on return, if Malta's 'list' status changes.

Hoping everyone has a great time, and fingers crossed I might attend next year.

Re: Bournemouth Air Festival 2021

How disappointing...

Decided to make the long journey to Bournemouth since there's so few airshows on this year and was especially excited about the A109 and Lancaster!

Was also hoping against hope for some more jets, but that's the way it goes I guess.

Re: Bournemouth Air Festival 2021

Would love to see another jet or two added, but realistically I can't see what is available. Maybe the Strikemaster pair?

I suppose if Covid restrictions allow, I could dream about the Swedish making a return... but that might be a bit mad...

Good point caper. In terms of pure display quality I can't think of a non-VT jet that is displayed better than the Finnish hornet.

Re: Bournemouth Air Festival 2021

Thanks Zoom. I've seen some photos from the show from, presumably, the top of a cliff - shooting down onto the aircraft. Any idea where these shots would have been taken?

Looks like the display of the year, in the UK at least. :)
