Re: Reoch @ Yeovilton 2012

No comment on the photos but a definite comment on the pre-amble. Air Day had something for everyone and some unique items/formations. 'Desperately disappointing' just isn't justified.

I agree. Best thing is to not feed the troll!


Agreed! I'm out of supplies in any case! :surrender:

Just from me - not posting on the organisers' behalf - I'd like to thank those that are still behind this year's show. Hope you all have a great day.

Re: Yeovilton Air Day 2012 - 23rd June

But no one's saying there isn't disappointment... It's clearly not going in, is it?! The organisers have done a great job - not just my opinion, but a fact. You've had it spelt out to you in the posts above - the cancellations in no way reflect lack of effort and if you truly believe they do, then t...

Re: John Blake Airshow Commentator Now RIP

One that's just come back to me is from Biggin Hill Air Fair 1995, on the Sunday, following a fantastic, vapour-wrapped performance from Anatoly Kvotchur in the Su-27. Something like: "well, after THAT, he could probably display inside a cereal box!"

Tremendous man.

Very sad news indeed - RIP. Two massive losses to the airshow community this month, and last, from his and Jock's deaths.

It's described by the FN as a 'dynamique' presentation - so could well be a full-on solo. But then, the Role Demo was pretty dynamic!!

Re: Air Day 2011

It's flying, Dave, and C295 is its static support. Arguably it's more than a replacement for the (excellent) Dutch F-16 demo since, as things stand, it's a UK 2011 season scoop!

Re: Does anyone have any photos from Biggin Hill shows 1982 to 2

I'm sure. The Bucc's last airshow season was '93 and the Su-27 first appeared in '92, so a shot with both in could only be '92 or '93. '92 saw a single Su-27 attend and there's only one in that pic (the second would be parked alongside it), plus that's the position it was parked in prior to its slot...

Buccs and Vulcans all 1992, Breitling Fighters 1999.

Your Mosquitos are both 1992 and I'm pretty sure your Su-27s are all 1999 - a mixture of Saturday and Sunday (presuming you went both days!)

German Phantom arrived at around 1100hrs last year and carried out a series of missed approaches. That's no indication of what time it might arrive this year but certainly the bulks of arrivals will occur on Friday (historically, the display teams have tended to arrive and/or practise mid-week, whil...

You're missing a key point to my mind - even though Epic Formacion's (very well-worded) post's made it abundantly clear.
