Re: New York Air Show 2019

I've recently booked. Travelling out via BA 747 on 22/08/19 to JFK and will drive up to local accommodation near the event. Have pit pass for Saturday and general admission for Sunday in case of need but will probably find a 'naughty field' then. Will hang around for departures on Monday before driv...

Thanks and yes, it was still turning onto the display line that unusually is 90 degrees off the main runway here and what makes it such a good venue for photography.

NATO Days

The annual NATO Days in Ostrava sometimes attracts some criticism. Having visited before in 2011, 2015, 2016 and 2017, it certainly delivered this year with good content both on the ground and in the air and all aided by fabulous weather especially on Sunday. The Czech Gripen was again a 'star perfo...

OK, it wasn't the best show I've ever attended and certainly one that was supposedly celebrating a significant anniversary, but there were still opportunities to be had https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1894/30463655348_93513b8cce_b.jpg DSC_2509 by Tim Beach , on Flickr https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1...

Oh! you mean SU27 Bort # 58 & 71? How anybody cannot have seen these in the last few years is unbelievable! Beyond that you're treated to in excess of a dozen multi-aircraft display-teams that appear with almost monotonous regularity throughout the year, including so many 'toilet-break' items t...

RNAS Yeovilton International Air Day

Great to return to the Yeovilton International Air Show on Saturday having missed the last few years. As usual, it was very well organised with a good variety of display acts. Whilst the commando assault finale wasn't as large as previous years, it was still very impressive. A great representation o...

My shows this year: Avalon, Barksdale, Sola, RIAT, Eastbourne, CIAF and NATO Days. Highlights: Avalon - Perhaps surprisingly the US F-16 that was the most accomplished and aggressive display from a USAF example I've ever seen. - The Raptor and much better than at RIAT. - Seeing the Connie including ...

Fantastic Flanker at CIAF 2017

The display at RIAT was great but the one at CIAF 2017 at Hradec Kralove was out of this world. Also explains why I save my pennies to attend shows abroad now and don't venture to many UK ones any more - the fast and low pass was at 50 feet rather than 250 and the display culminated in an explosion ...
