Re: FIA 2020 Participants

Never had any issues getting trade day tickets for 20 years. Personally I like that it is trade only days, it has been a long time coming. When thinking of coming accept the flying is a small part of the event and is not there to entertain you, its there to sell aircraft. Same with the static posit...

Re: Underwing civvy reg

I think that some, if not all American aircraft and German aircraft do not carry registrations under the wing. Most other civil operators into LHR do carry an under wing registration. The port or starboard wing point, I couldn't say for sure.

Re: June 3rd - Fly Navy III

Morane Saulnier is on the list, but wasn't it this aircraft that landed on a Sidmouth beach! Or am I confused? That's like saying there's a Hawker or a Boeing or a Lockheed on the list- there's a lot of Morane Saulnier types around- TypeN, 406, 505, 230, 315, Paris, Alcyon, Rallye etc etc... Thanks...

I would like to thank Phil and the Station team for another great event. It was sad to hear about the non-running of engines at this event. However, as a someone who has been to nearly all these events any change to the way the event is structured is an opportunity to experiment with a different com...
