Re: Duxford Airshows 2021

TFC have been good having aircraft outside for the public to see and today the Commanche Fighters P-51/Hun Hunter and the two 2 Mk1 Spitfires with one having an engine run. Doubt there will be anything out for the weekend though.

Tickets for the 22nd May Flying Day are now available. Would anyone happen to know if there is likely to be a limit on numbers?
Last year it was 2,000 and the date is still blocked on the web site.

But anyway, this quote I have just read from the PM is very disturbing. Boris Johnson says two vaccinated people cannot meet indoors because the "vaccines are not giving 100% protection", which is why "we just need to be cautious". So basically, that means we will not be able to ever meet anyone fr...

Lots of interesting Mystery subjects on Quest and Dave - from Bermuda Triangle stuff - to Animal mysteries with William Shatner and a few UFO things thrown in for good measure.
