Re: Remembrance Sunday, Duxford ~ 8th Nov20

From the FAQs
"If I am an ex-member of the military can I gain free admission on this date?"

Unfortunately, we do not offer discounts or free admission for ex-military personnel.

Re: Inside the Spitfire Factory

The Aladdin's cave that is Peter Monk's (and Guy Black's) store room!

Re: RW382 in US markings

Have to say I was a bit unsure about the new scheme on TE308, in particular the shark mouth, but I am warming to it - probably why I think RW382 looks fine and dandy!
Looking forward to the Red Star Spitfire PT879 flying.

Re: F1 ( and other motorsports ) 2020

If anyone is allowed an opinion on BLM then surely it's Lewis Hamilton. You do know that the POLICE logo on his helmet is a company advertising logo and not an advert for the constabulary?

Re: Big jet TV YouTube channel

I saw his recent 'broadcast' from Headcorn and his wobbly vision camera work and constant talking to 'someone' online just annoyed the hell out of me.

Maybe because he has a BJTV liveried van he thinks he can turn up anywhere and make his own rules...

Do we know how many tickets Duxford has sold for Saturday and for Sunday at the moment? I am guessing each day is far more than 3,640.

Posted by rutley on Fri 14 Aug 2020, 11:56 am "Over 14,000 tickets have already been sold for Saturday 19th September. The maximum limit is 15,000 per day."

I mean they haven't changed the rules on weddings and such, just that you can't meet on groups of 6 or more.

Could always change the title of the event from "Airshow" to "Wedding"?....

The fact it kept all the jet stuff well out of it's programme meant it was pretty unique and the only Duxford show I consciously made an effort to attend every year (taking leave over the FL weekend many years to ensure I could go).
