The BBC making fun of airshows?
« on: February 09, 2018, 05:44:01 PM »
I found this on the BBC News website...........http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/video_and_audio/headlines/42991673/what-is-the-point-of-an-air-show

I think they will find they are getting Air Trade shows,and general airshows mixed up,or is this just sloppy work again,aimed at poking fun at aviation fans. :-\
Those large shows referred to in the item do have public days,but they are mainly trade shows,and have little to do with normal airshow events.
