    Default Yeovil Air Day

    Don't know how many of you know about this, so I though I would let you all know. Yeovil air day is coming up next month, it's always good but a little busy. They have aircraft both static and flying around, helicopter displays with explosions and stuff, a fair ground, field gun running, guns and all manner of other things.

    Yeovilton Air Day

    If you're going, get there very early!

    Usually go to Yeovilton every year, but a lot of airshows are starting to look very similar...so have decided this year to give most shows a break, and instead of going the the usual 10 or so a year am just going to Farnborough in July....Also gives me a chance to save some money, as these aren't exactly cheap any more

    I'm planning on going to RIAT next month with my gf and family - if I'm going to an airshow, might as well make it the biggest one around...

    Hi Penfold, I know of the Fincastle competition...It's a good opportunity for various commonwealth armed forces including the Kiwis' to test their skill and technology

    How did you end up there?

    I was on the groundcrew for the UK team. Seeing as this an airplane related thread, below are a few pics of the Kiwi's aircraft, and then a short video of them doing their thing...

    Nutron: apologies for the thread creep...

    Very cool! Thanks for sharing Penfold...

    The ol' P-3s still smoke like a train....but great sound! They used to fly over my school at nearly roof top level doing that....Oops the anorak in me is coming out again....better revert to a petrol head...

    Again...sorry Nutron if we've hijacked your thread...not intentional...
