What are you doing on sunday 7th July 2013?

Wednesday, September 12th, 2012

Wrong! Well at least one of you is… One of you (namely the winner of this years calendar competition) will be going to RAF Waddington International Airshow (Waddo as it is affectionately know by its tens of thousands of fans) with a vehicle pass (for vehicle and up to 5 persons) courtesy of the team at Waddington.

Waddo is one of the UK’s biggest and favourite airshows, with typical crowds averaging 140,000.  This year saw the arrival of the Black Eagles in the UK, now there will be some who stop me to credit RIAT with this, but hey… Waddo showcased them first – all credit for having an earlier date in the calendar.

The main purpose of the event is to increase public awareness and understanding of the RAF and its role today. All proceeds from the Air Show are donated to RAF and local charities each year.

The spectacular 7-hour flying display normally features the fabulous Red Arrows, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, the RAF Falcons freefall parachute team and many more military and civilian aircraft from the UK; it is also heavily supported by military forces from around the world. Ground displays include 2 exhibition hangars, funfair, classic cars display, pleasure flying and much more!

You Wont be Disappointed

Wednesday, September 5th, 2012

At least thats how Neil Darby closed his review for the Dunsfold Wings & Wheels 2012 with a recommendation to attend in 2013.

Well  – good news – the winner of this years calendar competition and their family (2 adults and up to 3 children) will be going there for FREE courtesy of the Wings and Wheels team and Dunsfold Park (http://www.wingsandwheels.net).

For those not in the know… Dunsfold Park is the Home of Top Gear’s famous “reaonable priced car” race track. Wings & Wheels itself is a multi-faceted weekend of aviation and motoring entertainment staged over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

If you havent been to Wings and Wheels yet, do check out Neil’s recently posted review at http://www.airscene.co.uk/airshow-reviews/dunsfold-wings-and-wheels-2012.php and see what you have been missing.

To quote Neil directly… “This was the third Dunsfold show I have attended , and it just gets better and better each year. Separated out into different ‘Zones’, there is something for everyone. Whether it be 2 wheels or 4, Helicopters or Planes, Military or civil, the show has it covered.”

To enter and to have a chance of winning this and other great prizes, check out the competition page at http://www.airscene.co.uk/competitions/2013calendar.php and get your entry in asap!

The Dambusters Raid

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

On May 17th 1943 the Royal Air Force carried out one of the most remarkable raids ever undertaken by any aircrew. On that night a squadron of Lancaster heavy bombers flew at low level across a blacked out Europe, towards the four great dams that delivered water and power to the German industrial heartland of the Ruhr.

That raid is immortalised on the front of the Dambusters T Shirt, and is being given away as runners up prizes in this years Calendar Competition, courtesy of RAF Museum Cosford.
