"The Royal International Air Tattoo....from small beginnings" - talk by Tim Prince

Just bumping this talk as it's this Monday 11th March.
Should be fascinating and hopefully raise a few quid for a worthy cause.

Re: Your Favourite UK Airshow Venue

Can't disagree on Shuttleworth. The whole feel of the place is totally unique in the UK and when the weather plays ball and the Edwardians fly you just can't beat the it.

Re: Radom Air Show 2023 (26-27 August)

What kind of flares were these that the SU-22 dropped, they were new ones on me ? They are illumination flares for night photography developed for the KKR recon pod. Basically, the camera in the pod takes photos in sync with the flashes that illuminate the target. Thank you, every day's a school day.

I have it in good authority that it will take off for a final ferry flight a week on Saturday in 11 days time. In the morning, before 11:59am. Be there early as it could get busy.
I'll look out for the NOTAM :laughing:
