Re: SIAF 2015

F15s and B52 from US. Uk is 2 Hawks which will fly by at start, then later in the day. Obviously just a circuit or 2 as they are not display pilots. Will look rather plain if they do that right after a display team.

Re: Radom Air Show 2015

That Robinson was hovering for hours, non-stop all day it seemed. Was it TV? In which case why not just have a tower? I thought the toilets were fine! The water thing didn't bother me as it was so cheap inside, also it was free if you wanted to queue at the dispensers. Look forward to some SU22 pics...

Re: Radom Air Show 2015

Yes I was in Olenka last night! In Katowice now. Will call in at Vyskov museum tomorrow near Brno. I left during the Czech Hind display. How was SU22 pair? I've seen them and the Slovaks a few times so wanted to get out early and hit the 3 hour drive to Katowice.

Re: Radom Air Show 2015

And the most British visitors I've heard at a foreign show. Spotted by their note pads and pens and scribbling the numbers of the tow bars of the covered aircraft! Hope the bars were the actual ones of that aircraft!! Anyone else pull back the camo curtain in the hangar by the chipmunk to reveal mor...

Re: Radom Air Show 2015

Brilliant day. I've never seen so many food outlets and toilets for starters. Parked for free in M1 shopping outlet next to where they were charging where Lead foot mentioned. Romanian 21 great to see. Tricolori streets ahead again of any team. Polish huge fly past at start puts Britain to shame. Ha...

If u haven't seen it it is only available on the polish version of the site, but it's easy to work out. Split in two pages roughly am and p...

Re: Pinal July 2015

We got 3 nights in the Stratosphere for $212. 20th floor facing east looking out to Nellis. The ground tour of DM you can only book on the day at the Pima museum. I got there just after opening at 0930 I think and booked on the 1130 tour, only 2 a day. So I had 1:30 to do some of the museum before g...

Re: Radom Air Show 2015

24c and mostly sunny with a huge high over central Europe is what I am reading right now. I don't take much note until 2 days before but if that high does turn out to be there then it's looking very good.

Re: Kingman July 2015

I was surprised to see all of these. I thought it may have been down also to the various mergers that took place. If these really are going nowhere cos nobody wants them then under the 'something is only worth what someone will pay for it' principal, I may write to Delta offering $5k for N831AY!!

Re: Pinal July 2015

Basically Geoff it was a family holiday flying into Vegas and driving LA, San Diego, Tucson, Monument Park Utah, Grand Canyon, Vegas. I hardly planned anything aviation before going which made it a bit difficult to rent planes. But the two places came good and then when I saw how close boneyards wer...

Re: Radom Air Show 2015

There was some mention of this above but I wondered if any regulars can give more info on the best way to enter the show. I will be arriving from the south by car. I see talk of parking on roads, park and ride, farmers fields etc. but any concise 'this is the best way' gratefully received!

Re: NATO DAYS 2015 - 19 & 20 September

Can't believe I'm going to have to go to this ghastly event just to see the Draken and Viggen which I haven't seen yet. Hardly a full day event I see with what is down to fly, could be compressed into just one hour if it were back to back displays.

Re: North Is air base and San Diego Bay

I wonder why they seem to leave one F18 on the deck. I was there 5 years ago with 2 carriers in and both had 1 on top. Also on Google earth you can see 1 on a carrier. And talking of Google earth looking at North Is it seems to have its own mini Davis Monthan in the SW corner of stripped airframes.
