Re: Aeralis Red Arrows?

Because they would need to buy at least 15 more T2s to re-equip the Reds for the next 30-40 years

Hopefully they will find a UK home?
Unlikely in the case of the Hind, as anyone who takes it on will need to cover the transport costs from Pima.

Have you seen confirmation of this, or are you assuming that, as BBMF have been added to the list, this includes the Lancaster?

Re: BBMF Lancaster email

You have to wonder at what point the RAF need to call it quits? Two, separate, engines issues in the space of one afternoon....after a prolonged period of maintenance and a delayed departure due to it being at an airfield where the ASDA isn't suitable in one direction. Yeah. About time they cut the...

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

Standard pricing for Old Warden events this year. Up until a couple of months ago there was a further £10 on top for a parking space but they’ve done away with that now.

Yeah. Arrivals day is basically going to be a case of opening the hangar doors and pushing everything out onto the flightline.

I do wonder how some posters here function in real life. It seems they have the capacity of a 3 year-old to process available information and make decisions for themselves.

Re: Gathering of Moths 11 Sep 2021

I believe you can pay on the gate for this one, as it is treated as a normal admission day. It is probably worth emailing The Collection and asking.

I think you’re reading that completely wrong. They will be performing two flypasts at Abingdon instead of a full display, not two additional taskings elsewhere.

The first Hurricane (R4118) might just as well have displayed over Duxford!

I thought that it was quite quiet compared with previous times I’ve been. The two Lancs year, now THAT was crowded. Very easy getting in and out this year, and the car parks didn’t seem as full. Big queues for the food and drink this year though. A nice line-up and some great displays (Eskil in the ...

I really hope they didn’t run the two laps just to say they fulfilled their contractual obligations and to avoid giving the fans their money back.
Of course they did. They ticked the box that said “have a race” - done deal!
