Antivirus software

Its time to renew my AV software. Currently on McAfee but the renewal notification was a whopping 257% increase from last years. So looking around so would appreciate any recommendations.

Heliocopter - that`s the one. Recognise the colour scheme and dome just aft of the rotors.

Helicopter at Burton Bradstock

Walking along the coast today, I could have sworn I saw a Sea King practising along the beach a few miles east of Burton Bradstock. It was a distant into the sun view but definitely looked like one.

Is there a problem with the RIAT website today or is it my PC. I can access all my usual internet sites but not RIAT for some reason. Very odd

There`s something not quite right with that video. The road sign that is hit by the Su27 just doesn`t seem real.

Video recording lengths

My wife has asked me to video something with a length of 60 minutes. The equipment I have are iPad or my camera (canon 7D) with 32GB cards. I can foresee a problem with the length of video wondered if there are any tips or ideas to do it in one go. The quality of video doesn’t have to be great so ma...

Re: Athen’s flying week 21st and 22nd Sep 2019

You took care of my biggest piece of advice: get an enclosure. it's useful because you'll be on the crowdline which is nice for the taxy shots, but also because you'll have at least a chance you'll find a place to shelter from the sun. Thanks a lot, mate. I have got the spotter package something li...

Desktop background photos

This is vaguely aviation related as I use aircraft photos as my desktop background. Yesterday for no apparent reason the background photo had suddenly zoomed or magnified if you see what I mean. As is usual I switched PC off and on but no joy - what could I have done to the PC or monitor and more im...

Re: Duxford 'Showcase Days'

Might think about attending these next year.
If I may ask re parking and attendance - how does this compare with an air show at Duxford or is it more low key.
Is parking still on the airfield or has it moved across the road.
Any comments gratefully received.
many thanks

Duxford Premium membership

Might be interested in this particularly for the benefits of on site parking and enclosure on air show days
Can anyone share their experiences of these two aspects.
Also what is photography like from there - I presume there is tiering in the enclosure and no standing.
TIA for any comments

Re: New Hotel @ IWM Duxford

Provided it doesn't affect air displays I quite like the idea of booking a room and strolling down to the airfield on show days. Might encourage me to go more often.
