Re: Cosford 2014 News [MAIN THREAD]

Good to know the taxi run should be happening again, as there are no ga aircraft coming to the airshow this year would it be possible for the Jaguar to be started up on the runway rather than over by the has area ?

Sunset on Sunday

One from an hour or so out with the camera on Sunday, photobucket seems to have messed up the image a bit, going to give flickr a try. Rather happy with this one it seems better than my sunsets from a few months ago that I posted here. http://forums.airshows.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=52051&...

Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Lens

Does anyone on here use the Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Lens at all, I got a second hand 75-300mm lens years ago and it seems to be on its last legs - autofoucs becoming slower and sometimes stops working at all.

Re: Benefits Street !!

The new IDS benefits cap is 26K a year, which I think is still a massive amount of tax payers money to be given to a family for doing nothing. And housing benefit alone costs us £20 billion a year, an unbeliveable amount of money, and that doesn't include council tax benefit. Upto £500 a week looks...

Re: Help needed re: BHX

I usually use the bridge at Marton green train station and the park for taking photos at BHX. I went into the indoor viewing area in 2009 but wont while it was ok for viewing it was not ideal for taking photos.

Re: RIAT 2014 invited list

A promising start to be fair, the C-27 will be good if it comes off. Out of interest is there a typical time of year when the French tend to publish there display team and solo display schedules ?

Waddo is not garbage in fact for the price was one of the best airshows of the year. I had 3 cracking days there this year and am looking forward to more of the same in 2014 - hopefully the Viggen will come back again :smile:

Re: RIAT Commentary - 2012 vs 2013

To be honest im not a big fan of commentary at airshows I want to listen to the aircraft not commentary. Not really bothered who does the commentary as I tend to switch of from it most of the time.
