    Ah but......there will be many other people there with white tubes of varying length and diameter....but probably no others with an Airliners Net shirt.. :D

    Old Warden is renowned for its display line, terrific photo opportunities due to the close proximity to the crowd. You can get great pics with a much shorter lens than a normal airshow like Fairford or Farnborough....

    Dagadagadaga...... :rotfl:

    Thanks for this....

    Whilst looking for other airshow dates I came across this site that might be useful for others :

    2005 UK Airshows

    I won't be able to make the Shuttleworth show but I'm hoping to get to Duxford for the VE Day one

    Far too slow.... ;)

    Fast jets at Fairford is much better....some passes at up to 800 mph.. :cool:

    Yachts should be a good subject....

    I thought eveything had to be sub-sonic at air-shows... not that they are slow at that speed mind you....

    Woohoo! Ideal, just east a bit from me.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I'll be the one there hopping round on a pair of crutches and a Lowepro OffTrail II bag :D
