Re: RIAT 2020

If the reasons given for the grass length at FFD are true, why I wonder, do the Navy keep the grass so neatly cropped at Yeovilton?

Re: RIAT 2019

I did P&V East on the Wednesday but want to have the "full experience". So, do you know where the reduced tickets are being advertised? As far as I'm aware, the £5 discount offer is only being made by email, to those who bought Friday tickets for this year; hence you won't see it adve...

Re: Parking areas on show day?

Gates open 09:00, car parks at 08:00 - no point arriving much before that, IMO As for which car park, there are 6 public car parks and a 'VIP' park for the enclosures etc. - you will be directed to the appropriate one depending which route you approach on - from the SW, on the A303, it will be car p...

Re: RIAT 2019

This doesn't make sense either - people paying at the gate will arrive early to get in whilst advance ticket holders will still be arriving well after. How do you predict numbers on that basis. hmm ... on second thoughts, I guess you may be right ... but then they know how many advance tickets they...

Re: Design Your Own Flying Display

I'd choose Dunkeswell as my venue. It's got a half decent solid runway and is in a fairly quiet area. I would love to see a line-up like that at Dunkeswell (it's only 20 minutes away from me ) .... IIRC, the last time an airshow was held there would have been around 2005 (ish) - it was chilly and h...

Re: IMPORTANT - Future of UKAR

I think that the options of (i) a cull of inactive members and (ii) seeking sponsorship, should be mutually exclusive, as any potential sponsor is more likely to get on board a going concern with a large membership, where they can see the possibility of significant advertising exposure.

Re: Tamron 100-400mm f/4.5-6.3 Di VC USD Lens (Canon)

I'll second the recommendation for the Sigma 100-400 - I bought one last year and have been very impressed with the performance. Some professional reviews rate it on a par with the fabled Canon 100-400 for sharpness (one very comprehensive comparison test reckoned that it is a tad sharper than the C...

If we already have a ticket for Wednesday, I'm assuming we won't be turned away? In principle, correct, however I asssume that the total number of tickets is for both East and West P&V's, whereas each must have their own maximum capacity figure; so I wonder what happens if the majority of ticke...

Re: Whelford End - spotting from pavement being blocked for

The notice has just been posted on the official @airtattoo twitter feed, with the dates amended to run from 9th to 17th July.

With the 9th being the first Monday, are we to assume that they are expecting some early arrivals?
