Re: Concerts 2024

Great shots considering how far away you were.
Judging by the size of the crowd they appear to be more popular than ever.

Re: Cosford Airshow 2023 (discuss everything)

Re: LOTS more RAF Valley oldies - 2002-2003

Great memories of when we used have a real air force.
We all took these visitors for granted back in the day and now there's hysteria on social media at just a single Typhoon visit 😂

Re: CAA swept wing restrictions

As someone who regularly walks the dog in the woods at Oulton Park the Gnat accident was a shock to the system. The aircraft came down just a few yards from the road and the many well trodden paths that surround it. The only difference between this accident and the one at Shoreham a few weeks later ...

Great shots of a much missed airshow. This was the only Waddington which I managed to attend and remember it as an enjoyable day although absolutely scorching hot, thanks for the memories.

Re: Cosford 2022 - your thoughts

My thoughts are firstly,how good it was to be back at an airshow,we have all missed them and the entertainment they provide for enthusiasts and families alike. Most things have been pretty much covered in the thread,as far as the flying display goes it was decent considering the constraints the team...

Re: Cosford Airshow 2022

A couple of flypasts on Sunday with both F16 together would be a nice addition to the programme.

Re: Cosford Airshow 2022

Correct we'll never know how many tickets would have been sold for this year's show,I can only go by pre covid years numbers, what's far more important is future ticket sales as the airshow scene appears to be hanging by a thread with all the uncertainties in this world.

Re: Cosford Airshow 2022

Personally I believe finances have played a major part in the line up this year. Going forward we as enthusiasts can only hope that the airshow survives as the airshow scene as a whole has been decimated over the last 20 years. The appetite for shows is clearly there as the show sells out year on ye...

Re: Cosford Airshow 2022

Hopefully the Hawks/Texans will perform a flypast similar to the one for the jubilee.
My best guess would be the aircraft would relocate to Shawbury on the Friday and operate from there before flying back to Valley following a flypast, here's hoping!!.
