Re: RAF Cosford Air Show 2017 - [Main Topic]

Love the fact we're getting two USAF heavies :clap: :yahoo:

Now I'm just wondering what the French could be sending because if it was just a static surely it would have been finalised by now?? :question:

Does the flightradar 24 app on iPhone work for aircraft attending airshows or is it airlines only?? Was planning on using it. :question:

Re: RAF Cosford Air Show 2017 - [Main Topic]

Well I'm going on a coach for the first time. They're setting off at 9 and without traffic usually takes approximately 50 minutes, so god knows how long it's going to take if we get caught in all the traffic. I asked what time they think we'll be there and they said 10:30ish but hopefully they aren'...

It's a live video feed from the airshow team that streams on their Facebook page and they engage with the viewers.

Re: RAF Cosford Air Show 2017 - [Main Topic]

This is going to be nothing short of a PR disaster for the RAF, particularly with foreign military present able to use the normal axis. Let's hope they see sense. They need to pull their finger out of their backside, these rules are getting completely out of hand, especially enforcing it to arguabl...

I fear a Social Media backlash now,announcing this once people have already purchased their tickets.If the weather turns out nasty and two of the more exciting displays are distant,then J public won't be so quick purchasing their tickets for the 2018 show if there is one. They'll have a point if Co...

Well my excitement for the Typhoon display this year has now quickly diminished. The critique it got by members that went to Duxford last weekend and now this, is there any point in it even turning up???!!!

Re: RAF Cosford Arrivals

Typhoon is in Helsinki displaying on the Friday and Saturday so I assume that won't do a practice display unless he does it on the Thursday. The Tornado could do a practice display as many on here said a few years ago that the F16 did a practice display I believe. I don't think anybody really knows ...
