Re: Airshow London 2020 (CANCELLED)

There was a post on Facebook post to that effect, however since edited to reflect that the Drive in option is still being considered.

Re: Airshow London 2020

Keep an eye out around the second week of June for an epic podcast with Gerry, he's the Air Operations Director for Airshow London. He'll be joining my podcast for an hour to talk COVID and the show, plus his past. I'll certainly share some more details. I'll say, if you aren't apart of the Canadia...

Re: Airshow London 2020

ASL has put a poll on their facebook page. Two questions (from memory). 1. Would you attend if the show is able to go ahead. 2. Would you attend if it was mounted as a drive in show. Obviously, and not unexpectedly, they are mooting what if anything they can put off this year. The questions are hard...

Re: Super Hornet Down In Star Wars Canyon?

This is more or less academic in the current COVID crisis but here is an update from the Scramble Facebook page: "Following our Scramble Facebook News (SFN) report of 11 March 2020*, we now can present a picture of one of the first transitions of Super Hornets through the low-fly area of Death Valle...

Re: Super Hornet Down In Star Wars Canyon?

I am with you on that, it is akin to some of the stories, legend or otherwise, about some of British low level spotter community and the lengths taken to limit exposure or even participation. All very hush hush and protective until such time as one gets 'that' shot. More info will leak as tourists n...

Re: Super Hornet Down In Star Wars Canyon?

The below is what twigged my interest today... They would are not the official word, but they would certainly know the reality on the ground. Looks like I was premature in booking my Easter vacation in Florida.

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) 2020

Today's series of RIAT announcements were a welcome bright spot in an otherwise grim (but understandable) day for airshows. Looking forward to having another crack at photographing both of those demos. The Belgian demo with its great scheme gives some interesting opportunities whilst the USAF 16 has...
