Re: IWM Duxford Airshows and Flying Events 2021

I guess this is not the complete list as I was told at a recent Duxford display that we can expect to see the debut of a new formation act next Wednesday, which I am very much looking forward to seeing. Info from the lead-pilot-to-be, so right from the horse's mouth.

Re: IWM Duxford Airshows and Flying Events 2021

A very nice weekend, as it turned out. I understand IWM took a concious decision to keep this airshow simple, both because of the limited budget and lack of currency among aircrew and organisers. I was pleasantly surprised, therefore, that the flying display was virtually non-stop on both days. We g...

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) 2022

I'm sure there is no alternative but to increase ticket costs, although I do fear for the future of the event as a result. RIAT 2019 did not sell out. Since then, ticket prices have risen and average household income has fallen by circa 8% according to some preliminary studies. It has been heartenin...

Re: Gdynia AeroBaltic 2021

According to Aviation Photocrew, discussions are indeed underway with the Royal Saudi Air Force, with the intention of bringing the Saudi Hawks for the flying display and other aircraft, "like the Typhoon and F-15", for static display. They also refer to a "once in a lifetime chance t...

Re: IWM Duxford Airshows and Flying Events 2021

A really important point I picked up at a recent visit to Duxford regarding the Summer Airshow. My phone is pretty ancient and won't deal with QR codes, either through the NHS contact tracing app or otherwise. On non-event days and Flying Days this is not a problem as I can manually fill in a test a...

Re: Gdynia AeroBaltic 2021

The Finnish Air Force Hawk solo has been confirmed as the special-scheme jet and the Saudi Hawks' participation now seems almost certain after news of their confirmation by Kecskemet one week later. New additions: CIVILIAN 3AT3 - x3 Aero AT-3 (F) Luke Czepiela - Edge 540 (F) Antonov An-2 (F/S) Wojte...

Re: Gdynia AeroBaltic 2021

Yet more Iskras for the flying display - this time, the duo display debut from Fundacja Bialo-Czerwone Skrzydla. In other news, the announcement of the Saudi Hawks' participation in the Kecskemet Airshow the week after Gdynia, and continued use of Saudi Hawks images in Gdynia's promotional material,...

Re: Kecskemét International Air Show 2021

Any official confirmation if this Airshow is still on ? website ? Yes, the show is still on. The website is repulonap2021.hu. It has a quite stunning line up and given how cheap Hungary is to visit, I'm now very strongly considering going. It seems the Russian Knights, however, are no longer expect...
