Scampton arrivals

Recommended Posts

hi all,

 

Just a few from the Friday arrivals. We got there at 10.00 and left at 13.30. To be honest, this was the only good stuff, but the Swedes were well worth it!

 

cheers

Andy

thanks for the comments guys. It was worth it for the Swedes but as for the rest...............

 

In terms of value for money, the arrivals day was good; lots of space, nice background for photos, easy parking, good food. The downside was there was virtually nothing of interest landing, no demo flights when we were there and poor signposts to the entrance as the post code on the ticket was for the showground.

 

If that was the quality of participant, then it certainly was way over-priced for the main event at £39

A work colleague went to the Saturday show.

I don't think he was that impressed but had a good day nonetheless.

 

(BTW, Andy, Whetstone? I grew up in Wigston)

It's not up to the standard of the Mildenhall air fetes of the 80s that's for sure. Good job the swedes turned up cause nearly £40 to see some jet provosts  . . .

hi guys,

 

The Lansen was very special indeed and would be a challenge to model as it was so faded

Nice piccies Andy.

It certainly looks like a good job the Swedes turned up! It helps that they are fantastic aircraft too, pity we can't do something similar in this country.

Cracking shots!

 

I don't get why they invited the Swedes and then didn't let them display, seems like a missed opportunity - the Viggen display at Waddington a few years ago was immense!

Thanks very much. Maybe it is something to do with current display licenses in the UK, but i agree, it would have been a bigger attraction, at least to enthusiasts
