Re: First Show on July 18

£50 may be reasonable for a full car of 4/5/7 people, but for a single person? You’re essentially paying RIAT price (I still maintain that’s too high, but that’s another argument for another time) for a much lesser product. But it’s not up to me to dictate or judge how others spend their time and mo...

Re: 48 hour photo comp: the great British airshow

Not strictly an airshow, per se, but as it was a public event I feel this is the best I can offer up... Weather far from perfect, but the crowds always come out to celebrate aviation and history; and expecially for the rare/poignant moments. https://live.staticflickr.com/741/20579616488_14d5973693_o...
