Hey, just got back from the Duxford airshow.

Was pretty impressive, who else went?

The show from the Tornado and Jaguar was pretty impressive although nothing new...

Also nice to see them cats and of course the red arrows.

Don't have a decent camera so didn't get any pics http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Been there last year for the September airshow (impressive the Tornado ADV zooming, the Harrier hovering and the SAA 747 spiral climbing!!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif ), and this year for the Flying Legends in July (F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C).
Seen the hangars and the USAF museum?

oh, the I-15... that russian pilot put on a hell of a show. for anyone having trouble with the i-153 in IL2, the really do turn that fast. own eyes.

"Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to greater danger. It works the same in any country."

Hey everybody.
I was at both Legends and the one at the weekend.

I tell you, Duxford is definately my favourite place. They are re-doing the superhangar.
I made a 250 donation, and my name will be on the wall. The poetic part is, my grandfather flew EE Lightenings up at Leuchars, and they have a Lightning down there. I took the Number, and found out my grandfather flew that very aircraft 200 times, and brought it home after an engine fire. That will be in the new hangar, so there is a nice connection.

Back to the show, it was lovely to see the Catalina fly. The Cats are definately my favourite. I can only hope we get a Tigercat one day.

It was nice to see the T-bird and Sabre, which was my grandad's favourite bird. He flew them from Canada to Britain.

If anyone is interested, my Grandfather was John Hind, and was in the RAF 50s/60s.

Anyway. I'll shut up now.

Oh yeah, the display by the Chinook was pretty stunning, eh?

Take care all.
