Title: What plans have you for airshows in 2016
Post by: vanandjuanunited on February 15, 2016, 09:52:04 AM
For me.
Flying Legends and RIAT
Newcastle FofF- will depend on lineup this year
Airwaves Portrush
May try and fit Bray in if possible.
All booked for  legends and RIAT. Looking forward to it. Hopefully a few surprises in store at both.

I will most likely go to Portrush and/or Newcastle-both dependent on lineup of course and possibly Bray,again pending lineup.
If there isn`t anything to interest me at any of the local shows,I will just give things a miss for the year-no point going for the same oldx2.

I was planning to do RIAT or Flying Legends, but not looking likely now. So Newcastle, and Portrush. Hopefully Bray if I can get a few of my friends to go. (They are from Newcastle and it is a challenge to even get them down to it)

I'd maybe consider a jump across the water. But hmmm.

Only Newcastle for me this year but I will be visiting the Dornier and Zeppelin Museums in Friedrichshafen in July.

Probably nothing beyond our locals, which I'll only be doing if they offer something new.  Tall order for the organisers but I feel  the RAF displays & civvy formation teams that have featured for a good few years now have shown me as much as they can.... For a while.

In Normandy for the D-Day anniversary again this year and there's talk of a full display at Ouisterham on the day, it's usually just a PdF routine.

A trip to RIAT with a few others is already booked and accommodation sorted for Portrush, Newcastle will need to be a big improvement on last year to tempt me and I suppose I'll do Bray as it's my local show....

I had originally planned Yeovilton and Chalke Valley and Shuttleworth but once the f35 was announced I changed to RIAT and Legends. Been 2 out of the last three years- its a great day out.
