I know it's early days, but who's going? I certainly will be as it's not far, and I'm sure many of you will be too. In case you don't know about it, here's the details:

I can't wait, it's going to be awesome!

Marked as "want-to-go", but I sense, not this year.
I've watched a lot of tubevideos and I like it.
Also know  people who were at re-enactment show at Beltring.

PS: if someone goes to Duxford Flying Legends, visit the tank museum!
besides other things there is also an IS, a Tiger I, a Stug, Sherman, PzIV,
Comet. Also after worldwar stuff like the challenger.

The airshow anyway is worth visiting!
Mainly WWI + WWII Planes with a final display with most of the planes all together
In 2011 also f.example 3 Buchons (that look like 109ers), about 10 different Spitfires.

the IS is realy poorly positioned :( realy hard to get pictures of it without a bloody pillar (or people) in the way
