Season Premiere 21

Post by Mooshie1956 »

A quick question, both myself and son in law are thinking of going to this, do we book 1 car space or 2. As it stands we cannot travel together officially. So what do we do ?. It seems such a shame to book a space that could be used by others, just because we cannot travel in the same car.

As things stand you can't travel at all at the moment. You can't ask a question like this basing it on what is happening now, because no one can answer it and no one knows what the restrictions will be when the show happens, if it happens.

I attended 2 great shows at Old Warden last year and based on my experience there if you are taking 2 cars you will need 2 spaces. They were both extremely well organised and well worth attending. To the best of my knowledge there were no health repercussions from eiither air show. Whilst the other respondent is quite correct no one knows what the situation will be in May I`m an optimist and have booked my ticket for this event and a couple of others. Travelling from Cornwall I have also booked accommodation as I do not want to miss an opportunity of a show at Old Warden. The collection needs all the help it can get at the momnent and I am happy to do my small bit towards that.

I've got a ticket for this but I'm scratching my head over yesterday's roadmap announcement which precludes outdoor events at scale until May 17th at the earliest. Would the season premier count in the same way as a drive-in cinema though because those are allowed from April 12th?

That's pretty much how the early ones were run last year, you had to stay within your 5m x 5m car space except for visiting the toilets or food vendors.

I don't see any reason why the May shows could not go ahead on that basis again.

Yesterdays roadmap, though very welcome, gives me a problem with this air show. It`s a five and a half hour journey each way for me so unless things change and hotels are allowed to open earlier than stated at the moment, I will not be able to attend. I`m hoping Boris will eventually be able to amends his roadmap and allow hotels to open before 17th. May. Either way I hope it will be a good show.

Air BnB or a holiday cottage for a couple of nights somewhere is another option. That's what my parents are doing when they come down at the end of April for a couple of nights. Not for an airshow though!

Thank you 5944 I`ll see what might be available if the roadmap isn`t amended in the next couple of weeks.

Tickets are not far off RIAT prices (yeh I know, what's RIAT?) for this show. Shuttleworth know if shows happen they have a strong format with the drive ins and can make hay.
They must be confident the pent up demand will let them charge those prices...

Alternatively, the show will cost as much (if not more considering the anti-Covid measures) to stage but the audience will be much smaller due to social distancing, So either Shuttleworth makes a loss on the show or charges higher prices.

Some people can only see the negative in everything.....
nothing is confirmed at a show until its u/c hits the tarmac or it is running in for its display.....

Struggling to see where I am being negative? The prices are high, it's a fact. But I appreciate why and that the collection will have made a judgement on the prices they feel they can set. Jeez.

Looks like The Thunderbolt has gone off the list replaced by Hispano Buchon (The Aircraft Restoration Company)

That’s a shame, although John Romain’s Buchon display at the Season Premiere Airshow in (?) 2015 was brilliant.

Yeah that is a shame. I do like the P-47, and they even went and put it on the show poster!

'Sadly due to unforeseen circumstances, the P-47D Thunderbolt will no longer be displaying.'

I hope it is nothing serious.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did on my first visit. I still love the place but I'm holding off going until later in the season, I'm still not sure about being around to many people even with the social distancing they have put in place.

Cole you will love it. A great atmosphere and show exceptionally well organised. The only possible drawback would be the weather and no one can organise that.

The way the shows were organised last year, and I think it will be the same this year for the start anyway, you didn`t need to get out of your car if you did not wish to. The 5 metre squares allow plenty of room for a picnic table and chair/s and food and toilets are easliiy reached by the wide isles. I had no worries last year and with the vaccinations will not this year. Btw if you have one bring a portable radio for the commentary as the p/a system is only used for announcements at the start of the show. This makes for a very nice relaxed time as you can hear the aircraft, even the gliders whistling as they come in.
