This is a long shot but have Couteau Delta announced the additional airshow that they said they hadn't had full confirmation for on twitter just over a week ago?

I can't see anything about the additional airshow yet on their twitter or facebook so I'm guessing they haven't but someone here, e.g a Mr Bean character might have inside information :lol:



I think we need a search party for Mr bean, hes been silent for weeks ! :question: :lol:


Perhaps he's done a runner!! He was looking a bit green! :tongue:

His accuracy was somewhat uncanny? I'd relent at using the phrase "half baked"! :smile:

I don't know if I imagined if or if I read it on hear or heard it somewhere but I think the view the commentators get from the control tower is restricted as Maffett in 2015 and the guy last year didn't seem to know what was arriving or from what direction at times.

Take a look at the map, you can see how far back the ATC tower is, it impacted on the (already dire) performance of last year's commentary team too. "And as the aircraft departs to the East, up next will be the Chinook, oh hold on the MiG is coming back for another pass. Think this is his last - oh wait looks like he's coming back for another one" :facepalm:

I know, hence the sarcasm.
Let's just hope it changes in a positive way, although I'd definitely take sunny intervals. :cool:

Ireland confirmed, according to the website - a return of their CASA CN-235 would be most welcome. :biggrin:
