    just an update, me and CC went to the Culdrose Airday, there's to much to see flying so visit http://www.airday.co.uk/html/Latest_News.html one minor problem, there was low fog cover so here's what actually flew

    Sea king (role demonstration, it had to airlift a "wounded" man, exept it was so foggy you could only see the flair they used)
    Chinook
    Nimrod

    a bit of a washout i think you'll agree................................

    i don't think that they'd be to happy with several thousand people asking for their money back, not everyone paid on the gate anyway, we had advanced tickets...........................

    With such a poor aircraft list, it seems crap to me anyway. I remember the air shows they had here, in Finningley, you had the works. It was great. And because my dad worked on the station, we got in for free.

    Yeovilton often has a few nice participant, but as an airshow I think it's still not very good at all, and overpriced. It's extremely overcrowded as well, access to the airfield is poor (long queues), the sun is shining right in your face meaning making pictures isn't very good at all, and the airshow isn't that close to the crowd, which although safe, does mean you'll benefit from taking a pair of binoculars with you.
    But having said all that... as your second airshow it will certainly be worthwhile visiting and entertaining. And definitely heaps better than half a Chinook in the fog...

    A Chinooks good anywhere. My dad probably fixed that Chinook at some point, that you saw Lanc. Unless it's one of those new ones and they've sorted them out.

    the funny thing was that the weekend before i went to the plymouth armed forces show on the hoe, and they had a hawk, tucano, tornado, nimrod, harrier and a chinook, so that FREE event that was closer that culdrose, had more flying that a proper airshow!!

    That sounded disappointing, Lancaster. I certainly know I would ask for my money back.
