Re: Sky Drive 2021 (presented by Airshow London)

Also looking forward to commentary, video and photos.

Second year in a row missing this due to the current unpleasantness. Bring on 2022.

Re: Thunder Over New Hampshire Air Show

I did Pease in 2013, once the light crosses the rwy around midday the golf club parking lot was the place to be, dunno if they still offer this, but I rather enjoyed it (Will avoid the lens restriction.). The lens restriction is arbitrary madness. I was at Nellis in 2010 where such a ban was randoml...

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) 2022

I can accept that two years of cancellation leads to a need to up the fees. They are decent to allow you to opt out for a refund.

In a fit of wild optimism I booked my hotel for the week this evening. Trying the double tree this year, rates are currently reasonable via trivago.

The loss of the Newfoundland dates is killing me.

Re: Sky Drive 2021 (presented by Airshow London)

I think it is wise to commit to this format (for 2021) now given the lingering uncertainty of the pandemic. It will allow them to get a jump on maximizing the upside of this format and prevent a last minute scramble. Really hope , though, for 2022 that we see a return to the usual format, Statics (a...

Re: 2021 CF-18 Hornet Demonstration Team Schedule

The Newfoundland date certainly has me curious. Time to make inquiries....

Should also note that unsurprisingly the only pseudo American date will be operated from Canada.

Also no availability for Air Show Atlantic unless they seek out the early June date.

Right now any demos are a bonus.

Re: Airshow London 2020 (Now "Sky Drive" Presented by ASL)

I was expecting London to be impressive due to scarcity of other shows but the latest news is mind blowing. Hook and the rest of the ASL crew have pulled off a major coup, That world class line up will never be bested in Canada.

I'll just be here In the Atlantic Bubble, sobbing to myself.

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) 2021

For my initial visit in 2013 I had intended to drive to the show site for arrivals/departures and take the shuttle on show days (Was concerned with dealing with show day traffic chaos whilst driving on the left for the first time) so I focused on Swindon where the shuttle departs from(Campanile was ...

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) 2021

A bit of a heads up. If you are being optimistic about RIAT 2021 travel plans give some thought now to booking your accommodations. I had 2020 FRAT tickets, let them roll over into 2021 FRIAT tickets. This morning, in a fit of said optimism, I booked my room for RIAT week 2021(At a refundable rate!)...
