Airshow season approaches

Airshow season approaches:
Well it seems Christmas has only just left and already the airshow season is approaching. In around 6 weeks time the sky at weekends will start resonating to the sound of aircraft big and small going through their paces. Some will bring pure brute force whilst others gracefully dance through the air whilst others stir long distant memories and remind us of the courage and sacrifice willingly given by so few.

Brute force and raw power from the F16
It’s a big shame the USAF have withdrawn all airshow funding this year as that will leave a big hole in the big shows like RIAT. Yet another sign of the modern times unfortunately. Above all lets hope this airshow season is fun, enjoyable and above all else safe for everyone involved.
