Re: Air Tattoo 50: The Story Of The World's Greatest Airshow

Already completed, released and shipped some weeks ago. Everyone I know who has it says it is excellent, but £36 for a book is really pushing it. If you're interested in RIAT then the also-brilliant book Airshow is still available second hand on Ebay, where I picked up a copy for £0.01 last year.

Re: Corona virus, Covid-19 and airshows?

If you crunch the numbers, there are some really interesting findings with regard to 2021 airshow cancellations. Personally, this is the data I find most interesting: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/e/2PACX-1vSILD92Qk0_wyk682Seg1GDjfA2OiQEExuI3wg0XtAAzujTfVC-4MCkQu2aj-psA8LzX1Jpl7uteCoj/pubch...

Re: Belgian Air Force A109 Display Team 2021

I guess that being said, I can only just look at it virtually. Hopefully, they draw up another ideal paint scheme for next, could've evaluated they transfer annually to different paint schemes, to come to thought that seems similar to the Canadian Forces CF-18 Demo Team since outfit the jet with di...

Re: Belgian Air Force A109 Display Team 2021

That looks like a sick paint scheme, to be frank, it has a better paint job than "Venom's" paint scheme, definitely would love to see that in-person someday, the only con is it's too far of a distance from my area. Might just be worth a trip sometime next year. The display Team (to say) r...

Re: Belgian Air Force A109 Display Team 2021

What a great scheme! The Belgians do such a good job of military solo displays, in every possible respect. A true credit to the Air Force.

Re: Airshow 'Map'?

The ICAS website used to have a map on its calendar page, but that section of their site has been updated some time in the last couple of years. It claimed to be a global map, but ICAS only acknowledged the existence of three or four non-North America shows each year (out of 500+) so it was pretty u...

Re: International Causeway Airshow 2022

And so the saga rumbles on... Sinn Fein are challenging the legality of the decision to revive the airshow, given it was cancelled on grounds of cost, and the council's financial situation hasn't been resolved since then. They haven't actually presented a legal argument as to why the motion was unla...

Re: World Championship Air Race

Last week, WCAR announced they have entered a 15-year parnership with the FAI to provide safety oversight and governmence (presumably this will also allow WCAR to become an official World Championship). They will be the sole recognised airgate-based manned air racing series during that time. In othe...
