Re: Red Arrows - Seven aircraft display 2022

"When we moderate we're said to be heavy handed, when we step back and only get involved when we have to, we're not moderating enough. We can't win."

Which probably means you've got it about right.

Re: Topic of the week #20 Seaplanes

As ever a great, diverse range of aircraft and some excellent photography. After a great deal of head-scratching, the winner is Derek's DHC Beaver at sunset (or sunrise?) somewhere in Canada. I must also give a more than honourable mention to Pete's superb Martin Mars shot.

Over to you Derek.

Re: 14th May - Evening of Espionage Show

Shuttleworth are seemingly going down a similar path to that Duxford adopted around 5 years ago. Inflated prices and ludicrous extra fees to park. Duxford to some degree got away with it due to the unrivalled warbird line ups. Shuttleworth does have a fabulous and in many ways unique offer also, so...

Topic of the week #20 Seaplanes

It's getting increasingly tricky to find something we haven't already covered, and I know we've already had "water", but I thought I go specifically for seaplanes (or floatplanes/flying boats if you prefer). The usual five entries. Off we go! https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50774227192...

Re: A few holiday pics from the Caribbean and Florida

Thanks for looking and commenting George. The noise is present in quite a few of the photos for a number of reasons: Several were taken in fading light. The photos of the FedEx planes and the Embraer were taken using ISO 5000 ; In the case of the last three they were taken in fading light and from b...

I'm increasingly concerned that Shuttleworth have lost the plot. I'm certainly giving this one a miss. Absurd pricing.

Yeovilton and Legends are the two “big” ones missing from this year that I can think of, but plenty of others have put plans on ice or have potentially been lost entirely.
A very sorry state of affairs 😢
