Re: Abingdon Air & Country Show 2017

Sounded very much like a spluttering engine when it came past then sounded like it completely cut out. Very well brought down by the pilot!!!

Re: International Sanicole Airshow, 8 & 10 September 2017 (B

If you are planning to head for Calais/Dunkirk on the Sunday, best advice is to book a crossing well after 9pm (European Time) if you plan to stay to the very end of the show on Sunday. It does take time to negiotate the car parks/roadworks (Ham has been a buiding site for the last two/three years)...

It would be possible to enter the parking at 5AM. Not something we'd encourage widely but you can park up alrea...

I know we are still a long way out but with what's being listed for Sanicole this could be a very underwhelming show. Channel tunnel already booked!!!

Re: RIAT 2017

I fail to see how they will get it all in on time with only the two arrivals days and no time on the Friday for additional arrivals that don't make it. Also all the practice and validations can't see it happening without Tuesday as a arrivals day as well??
