If folk didn't want to go to Cosford they wouldn't go- yet there's always a healthy crowd and last years b1/B-52 flybys were something that even the RIAT posse didn't get.
Same old Cosford though eh...
You go to Yeovilton and enjoy yourself there.
I will be supporting my local show (as well as RIAT and a few others) and look forward to your next half empty cup cynicism comment.
Lighten up old chap eh!

Geoff, I visited Mark last week to photograph the two jets together for the first time. He confirmed that full that the new Strikemaster will receive full Sultan of Oman's Air Force colours, as the jet would have worn during it's use in the Battle of Mirbat of which it is a genuine combat veteran.
