    30 quid a ticket bit steep isnt it, I used to go to waddington when it was on and finningly and the tickets were never over a tenner.

    This is going back a few years though.


    and at 168 miles its a bit far to travell.

    I went to the one last year and thought it was really good (last year was the aniversery of d-day ).

    this year should be just as good hopefully.

    30 a bit speed isnt it. I go to waddington and tickets are never over a tenner
    what sort of planes are there for a tenner may i ask?

    do they have themes and things etc? remember you get what u pay for.

    [QUOTE] I normally go to the waddington one but this year I might go to riat [QUOTE]

    im sure its going to be good fun never the less

    From memory it started in 1995, and it's been happening each year since, and it's most certainly on this year.

    I live a couple of miles away and am going.

    As far as I know the RAF has no plans of to cancel the Annual Waddington Airshow.

    Went last year, sunny for most of the time , then rained and rained. Awesome air display though, unforgetable, beats yeovilton navy air display hands down, shame the americans arnt brining any f-35's over neither f-18's or 15's strike eagles. I might go, unsure at the minute though.

    ok -so I assume a tattoo is a show?

    is a tattoo also a tattoo as in ink on your skin?

    is a quid a pound note?

    I would like to see the f22 in a full demonstration.

    Tattoo:

    1. A signal sounded on a drum or bugle to summon soldiers or sailors to their quarters at night.
    2. A display of military exercises offered as evening entertainment.
    3. A continuous, even drumming or rapping.

    ok - does it also denote an ink impression in the skin like it does in the states?

    Yes, 1 quid = 1 Pounds Sterling.
    5 quid = 5 pounds etc
    So it's just another term (or slang) for pound.

    Well....

    The airshow is over. what did you think about it? did anyone here apart from me go?

    I went I was in the public grandstand

    I didnt think the airshow was all that good this year, last year was better.

    Although I did like some of their record attempts specially when 1 almost went wrong hehe.
