Pretty good day all round once the weather perked up after lunch - except the loos were a bit thin on the ground. Pilots did an excellent job dealing with the cross wind too.

Hi all, thanks for the feedback it is always helpful. Looks like a few issues to ads to the wash-up meeting on this event so I will pass them on.

​I understand why some shows get criticism, some of our show has certainly had them in the past, the old saying is you are only as good as your last event, everyone is different.

There is a place for all the shows, it is up to you as the paying public which type is best for you.

​It is Elvington for us next, hope to see you there.

Must say my family and I (two of these were none modelers) did enjoy the show yesterday. There was a small issue on the pre ordered tickets which I must say was dealt with quickly and efficiently.

The show did look very well organised and the competent way in which all of the pilots I saw fly should be complimented in the safe manner of the whole display.

The biggest compliment was told by my daughter who said in the car on our way home ' I really enjoyed that even though I though I would not have '.

Well done LMA and all involved.

thumbs up

Have to say, it was a really good couple of days, great flying and some beautiful planes. Campground booking was excellent Dave.

My only gripe was the elsan point. By Sunday lunchtime it was gross.

Commentary was good far better than recent non LMA shows.

Should there be a lunch break for 45 mins? Would that allow everyone a chance to shop, eat, take a breath etc?
Or would that detract from the flying and break the day causing people to go home early?

Yep, a great day on the Sunday for 3 of us sharing a car to get there. Great flying, great variety, love the VC10, Vulcan butjust about everything was good. Trade was plentiful, commentary varied but never intrusive. Gonna try for Elvington next. Missed Cosford for last 2 years but good to see the standards still being maintained at high level.

Being local, Netty and I took two non-aeromodelling friends along for the Sunday afternoon, who were both absolutely awestruck by the whole experience.  One of them bought a simple ARTF as a direct consequence.

A superb show.

Glad you enjoyed it, elsan point now on the list, thanks.

Now that was worth the show on its own, so glad you all had a great day.

We have had lunch breaks in the passed and had complaints, you can never win, what works for some doesn't for others. Plus Cosford has so many pilots who want to fly we couldn't possibly fit them all in with the time we have. This year we rolled out a program to give people an idea when most planes where flying so as to give an opportunity to visit the traders we are hoping to continue this at Elvington.

We can't thank you all enough for your feedback, this is what all shows need as it helps improve thing for next time. No show will ever get it 100% right but judging by your feedback we are certainly doing something right, so long may it continue. Hope to see you all at Elvington, its only 4 weeks away.

Always enjoy the LMA shows myself, i enjoy others as well, bit of hype/music don't bother me so much, promote your shows by all means but why knock others.

I agree John, as I have said in an earlier post. There is room for all the shows, it is up to the public to chose which one suits them.
