Great lineup. Heading down for what will probably be my only airshow of the year with my youngest in tow.

Standout (after the Sea King) for me is Anna Walker in the Jungmann - always a fantastic display.

Actually very surprised Old Warden did not consider booking the Red Arrows for this one ?

It might be that with the drive in format reducing the numbers to maintain distancing they become too expensive even if the show sells out. There might need to be a significant rise in the ticket prices to cover it.

Was hoping the need for speed tag line might have meant a Mustang, Fury or Bearcat, but a nice lineup anyway

Yes, does seem a little strange (maybe they're TBA?) I assume the Sea King will be the HC4? Be nice to see the yellow one too?

Still a drive-in show? So much for ‘Freedom Day’ then if outdoor events are still restricted.

Must admit, thought this was a shoo in with the 'theme'. Oh well!

Yeah, but now they've painted all those nice white boxes on the grass it'll be a shame to waste them..

Just be thankful the events are still going ahead, I have no idea how these airshows are organised but i'd imagine they have to set the events up as drive-in format well in advance for insurance etc. Might cost them more to change the format, and what if so called freedom had been put back again ?

I personally prefer the drive-in format as it's much more civilised.

Shuttleworth becomes far less civilised when there are no white boxes? I have to be honest, I'm not sure I can say I've ever noticed that.

Just because legal restrictions have been lifted it doesn't mean private organisations have to make changes, they can still choose to impose restrictions if they wish. In the same way that some shops, pubs and restaurants are still asking you to wear a mask, it's their property, their rules.

It was probably too late to change the format as well, remember the 1st is only 2 weeks after the restrictions were officially lifted and by then a substantial number of 'drive in' tickets would be sold. Add to that the fact that 'freedom day' had already been moved back one months who's to say the PM wouldn't have moved it back further (and in some ways possibly should have -sorry I digressed) when organising an event you need a bit of certainty and in these times the drive in format gives that I suppose.

Of course, they can set it up their event however they like. Same as I can choose whether or not to attend.
I am just surprised that organisations like SW wouldn't have had a plan in place to 'open up' if and when restrictions were lifted.
I guess in our risk adverse modern society any operating agility goes out of the window due to legal processes and regulation compliance.
Maybe given that another UK lockdown is probably only ever a couple of months away it probably makes it easier to just stick to one low risk approach and maintain it than chopping and changing as the government pivots from one approach to another.

It should be of interest to some that the Sea King is now listed as Westland Sea King – Search and Rescue (Historic Helicopters)
