At most shows the " groupies " sit just along the fence, with none standing unless, flyer, spotter or Marshall

I am sure this was a over site this time, as at previous shows at Weston, the pilots could clearly be seen during there spot

A good weekend. Get annoyed with people moaning about the dark, wet weather- we are in the UK after all. Where's the great british spirit?

Nothing you can do about it, but 95% of the flying took place, and not affected it too much. Bought 3 models and loads of other bits.

Next thing will be spectators on top of step ladders, as per full size airshows.

Only living some 15 mins. from Weston i have attended the show for more than 15 years, never been disapointed, regarding the weather the average club field is affected by the U.K.weather, we all moan about mud, rain wind etc but we done our boots, wellys and bad weather clothing and turn out to enjoy our hobby ( for how much longer is another story ) after the shock of the £14 pound entry fee i was amazed to see what a large turn out on such an iffy day weather wise. I went on Sat. only one big shower about 1.00,just as i got back to my car for lunch, My visit to SLEC to stock up with wood was my first visit, you cant beat their show prices for balsa and they have an endless quantity to select from. i think the trade was about the usual size for this show, not certain about prices as i only buy wood from shows now. Good old Dave. Bishop was co-handling the mike for the comentary , i thought he had retired ? when the Lancaster did a no show on Sat. afternoon he filled in the time as only he could, but it was a nice surprise when a griffon ?engined Spitfire turned up and did an impressive display, yes i agree that Jase "the ace"Desuza was very good but the young Israili pilot stole the show for me , maybe because we had seen Jase. before we knew what to expect, but nor seeing the israili lad was all new. all in all i enjoyed the show and will be looking forward to next year.

I must admit and sorry to sound petty BUT the amount of chairs and people in the "pits" is getting a joke.

Its all family and friends, I thought that side of fence was for pilots and crew/helper. Now you see kids and dogs!

Having no chairs would help ,if they must be on the other side have a area to one side for family and dogs.

Having non-directly involved people on the display side of the crowd line seems to be against the spirit, if not the letter of the law for separation distances. I would strongly recommend that display organisers think seriously about this apparently growing practice, both from the perspective (rather literally!) of potential customers and for their own protection in the event of something unfortunate happening.
