Surprised nobody has mentioned South Africa, not that it is, just surprised they've not been mentioned. :cool:

I think Pakistan is the best shout, if the Twitter "clues" are correct.

Seriously, excellent, excellent news. This is pretty unprecedented for Cosford. Brilliant addition. Plus, large aircraft always look great at Cosford.

Cosford are off to quite a start! :rock:

Don't be daft, it's the Mirage IIIP demo....! :smile:

Very nice, though with the 100 RAF machine theme I dread to think how tight the static will be... :hide:

What a quality addition that is. Congrats to the Cosford team.

If RIAT is anything to go by - and it will be - the crew are very hospitable, welcoming, and only too happy to show you round the C-130 inside and out.

Great stuff. :clap:

They were one of the most welcoming crews at RIAT.

Is parking on hard standing or grass?
All visitors parking is on grass, however, there is a small amount of concrete available which is reserved for disabled parking and motorbike parking.

For those who ride a Motorbike, what's it like for parking on the show day?


Not sure about the show day, but the arrival (usually fri&sat) days you can park just below the train station.
Would be nice to see you up there if that's something your up for ?

The Bo105 is an incredible display item a truly amazing display. Sycamore is a fiendishly good catch; wonder if, just for a few days, they could lose that hideous Red Bull logo.. :whistle:

I can honestly say I didn't see that coming. In fact, I never really expected the Sycamore to make the journey ever.
Well done Cosford!
