    I'm not sure of the ones that focus on WWII, but here are a couple of lists of the airshows for this year SM.

    https://www.airshows.aero/Page/ASCalendar

    This one is just north of San Diego, and it always looks good:

    Virginia Beach:

    Think there is a good one in Washington State as well, Olympic show maybe?

    Looks like there are many good shows and they run right through to the fall, so finidng one that you can get to should be realtively easy.

    Hello Pattle,

    With Blitz broken, this event had the potential to go very wrong; but it seems like it's been very successful.

    The pics are brill, and you're definitely getting better at this.

    Well done!

    There's always a bunch of guys who go to Duxford, right?

    Maybe some of you guys could do a similar sort of thing there.

    Re: Warbirds over Scone NSW - Sunday 25th March. Cliffs of Dover on show.

    Being my 1st airshow I was a bit of a kid in a candy shop.
    Getting up close and personal with some of these warbirds was awesome.
    IvanK let us sit in the pit of his bird which was a real treat, thx m8.
    We had one PC dedicated to just running showcase youtube CloD sim-theatre videos which folk could watch.
    Only a couple of adults were prepared to get behind the stick but quite a few more were happy to watch either Pat or myself and the numerous young boys take the aircraft thru their paces.
    All were amazed at graphics and the head tracking gear.
    Unfortunately later in the day the light reflections were wreaking havoc with my TrackIR but Pattles head tracker was still ok.
    There are 2 pics included with my hand against the wings of the Hurri & Spit. Was amazed how thick the Hurri wing is.

    Great list Deacon. So many great shows, and I hope to get to some over the next few years. Going to SD to tour the carrier and then up to Chino for an airshow would be amazing!

    Hey Pat ...looks like you had a great day and those pics are fantastic . The Hurri looks purposeful ...The Spitty beautiful of course and the 190 wow ! ...menacing or what !

    Great job guys and I'm sure there'll be a new intake to CLoD because of your efforts at Scone .

    Yes it was Silent and yes it flew in on the day. No display flight as such, just her arrival and departure at the end but they had it parked close to the crowd fully opened up so u could see inside.

    Fantastic photo's Guys! I really enjoyed them and, yes, that 'Butcher Bird' really does look beautiful but threatening. The Spit and Hurri still look as if they would look quite at home at the Vicars tea party on the lawn.......all artistic beauty but with teeth! I am really pleased everything turned out well for you.....and oh for some of that Aussi sun!

    I bet many of the adults were too bashful to have a go but might well investigate further once they get home. Let's hope so! Salute!
