https://www.reuters.com/article/uk-health-coronavirus-britain-summer/too-soon-to-think-about-summer-holidays-says-uk-interior-minister-idUSKBN29Q2KT Sadly I think if summer holidays are in doubt, large events must be hugely in doubt.

Re: RIAT 2021 Participation and Discussion Thread

I agree. It would be brilliant to have a show, but I'd just like to know either way, sooner rather than later. I have all my holiday in for the week as usual but I think I may end up moving it. I have heard from a friend in the entertainment industry that they have been told to expect to be free fro...

Re: Melun-Villaroche 2021

Excellent news that Melun-Villaroche is preparing to plan an airshow for 2021. But why pick a weekend that will clash with Sanicole and the proposed Tiger Meet at Klein Brogel ? Because the date picked is the annual date of the Melun-Villaroche airshow, that has been scheduled for the second week-e...

@Ant.H - Thank you very much! That is one of my favorites from the set. @Airwolfhound - Thank you! I'm glad you've enjoyed them. RIAT really does set a high bar in my opinion. @FarnboroJohn - It's a shame that the special schemes in the static park had toilets or stalls as the backdrop - the arrival...

Re: RIAT 2021 Participation and Discussion Thread

I'm hoping it's not going to be too different. I can't really see what changes could be made whilst keeping the scale and integrity of the event intact. Surely the big one is social distancing. If social distancing is in place, FRIAT and other enclosures are out of the question, and the meetings of ...

Very nice, pal. I love how clean some of these images are. That NATO E-3 with the fluffy clouds and blue sky is peachy! Not sure about the rotate on the German special Typhoon or the Hercs - the stuff in the background give it away a bit, but I like it for the Phantom noses. Perhaps because the hor...

RIAT 2019 - 6 Days, 6 Photos Per Day

Hello all. Just like everyone else who attends RIAT, I've got a shed load of pictures from the event... I've tried to keep the subject matter varied and I've narrowed it down to six photos per day. If you want to see more of my shots, I've got galleries of each day, plus a smaller highlights album o...

Berlin-Gatow - December 2019

I finally managed a visit to the Luftwaffe Museum at Berlin-Gatow in December 2019. I was a little disappointed because most of the indoor areas were closed, but there's still a great selection of classic aircraft to see. Obviously the aircraft outside are not in the best of shape, but my main criti...

Can't get to get excited, when the event may not go ahead.

He outright called Eric Brown a fraud and a liar and said that the UK contributed nothing to the war. Hard to find respect for him, to be honest.

Re: 2021 Airshows

I’d be surprised if there’s any meaningful sort of airshow season in 2021 and I think we should be prepared to accept that the airshow ‘scene’ as we know it will never come back. I think we have seen our last RIAT and aside from shows at Duxford and Shuttleworth, I don’t see many others - big or sm...

A tricky theme for me but here's a few: Dawlish, what a great show this was, as I think everyone that ever attended and sat in the field knew. Here is a 771 Sea King, now also gone of course, at the 2014 show. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50648798503_b6fa6b9bab_b.jpg Sea King at Dawlish 14 by...

Hello all! I've tried to pick something quite open here, so the only requirements are that both aircraft, and the wheel, must factor into the image. It could be as simple as an aircraft on approach, a combination of vehicle and aircraft, or creative crops of landing gear. It's open to interpretation...
