Flight Sim 2018 show report
As is typical with the UK, it was raining as attendees for Flight Sim 2018 (back in October) queued up outside Hangar 1 of the RAF Museum at RAF Cosford, Shropshire. Now in its sixth year, ‘Flight Sim Show’ is an annual event organised by Just Flight. Over 1,800 people attended this year’s show, the largest since it began.
Walking down the line, a myriad of different languages could be heard, an indication that visitors had travelled from not just all over the UK but from all over the world to be here, in the rain. The mood of the attendees was a combination of excitement and anticipation as they began to file through the doors into Hangar 1.
Distributed among the iconic aircraft, such as the Comet and the Gnat T.1, were the exhibitors who represented 36 companies from all across the flight simulation industry and were showing off what they had to offer to the hundreds of attendees packed in among the aircraft.
