I'll be there - always a good little show. Little disappointed with the flying programme this year though, as apart from the Teichman Spit, it's last year's show minus Sally B. Wish the organisers would try and develop the show year on year...

True, but its what you can get on the day G-RAID is making a welcome appearance though which should be nice. would be nice if the boys at Breighton brought thier toys!

The Skyraider was awesome at Kemble last week - a real highlight of the display.

Says shes still owned by Paina ltd, thought Kennet aquired her? Pretty sure she was at Kemble Damien, you photographed her.

There was a Skyraider at Kemble - are there two active in the UK? EDIT - Old Buck's website says John Beattie is down to fly the Skyraider on Sunday. Reckon that would make it Kennet's ship, which appeared at Kemble on Sunday... Unless I'm very wrong!

Old Buck is quite good for photography - get a decent place on the crowdline in front of the tower/restaurant, and that's great for some really close taxi shots. Reckon I might try a bit further down to the left this year, where the classic cars were parked last year, depending which end of the runway's in use. http://www.airshows.co.uk/content/reviews/2004/oldbuck/oldbuck.htm is my review of the 2004 show. Excuse the pics, they were from a non-DSLR Finepix S5000, and I don't think the links to full size images are working anymore...
