Actually, one of them did, and I was in his queue :(

It took me fairly two seconds to put my cap down, maybe yours were too heavy? :grin: Comparing Airpower with RIAT, seriously? :lmao: RIAT is the worst nightmare when it comes to handling of an entrance queue, and I know what I'm talking about. Airpower saw more than 300.000 visitors on both show days, RIAT in 2016 I read something of 160.000? I have never experienced a minute where I was stopped @Airpower, except the seconds at this guy checking my bag and cap. During RIAT I was walking nearly an hour only to get to the guy not asking for my cap...

Conclusion: I prefer to be asked for my cap, and be on the place in a trickle of time I would need @RIAT. :rock:

Not sure where this 300,000 Figure both Days came from?
It seemed twice if not more busier on the Saturday :dizzy:

I thought the 300k was across both days. I "guesstimated" 100k on Friday and 200k on the Saturday (as you say twice as busy)
