A big thankyou to everyone who attended the Cosford weekend, so glad you all enjoyed it. The three V bombers where a sight to behold, Dawn Patrol did us proud with a fantastic display. Also TJD just seem to get better and better, another fantastic display from them all weekend. The 100 years of the RAF went down well. A big thankyou to the Red duo Steve & Matt Bishop, outstanding display even though they had a bird strike in the middle of one display, very well done for keeping cool and landing safely. Deano really got the crowd going with his spirited display which left them begging for more. The airliner slot was also a big hit with the VC10 in its BOAC livery, along with the Air France Fokker, so realistic, the icing on the cake was Keith Mitchell's Constellation, what a stunning model and a great end to the show.
What a fantastic weekend, the weather was spot on, we hope it continues for our next event at Elvington on the 11th & 12th August. Hope to see you there.

Just a quick update before I head of to Cosford this evening, BBMF have just confirmed they will fly though with the Dakota on Saturday afternoon.
I know football is not for everyone, that incudes me. but we have to respect everybody's wishes as a lot of people with be camping and will have the opportunity to watch the show on Sunday the least we can do is provide them the opportunity to enjoy the match in a pub like environment with friends instead of watching it in there caravans. also day trippers will have the opportunity to also watch the match after spending most of the day watching the show.
Win, Win if you ask me.

Flying starts at 09:30, it is a big line up as always with Cosford, this year we are celebrating 100 years of the RAF, you will be given a program at the gate with the slotting, so you will have an idea what is on and what time, but as always it is only a guide, with the best will in the world times can change etc.. due to issues with models or just some flights running over.
This year for the first time ever in modelling history we will have the three V bombers flying together. Best bring your cameras.
We hope you enjoy your day with us.
why don't you come and find out for yourself
You would be surprised how many have asked
For those of you who want to watch the match, there will be a large TV screen in the beer tent.

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.
