    Yeah, I'll be up for that. Will bring a bigger memory card though, or just take less pics than last time! Had to delete so many at Eastbourne!

    Where to meet and what time?

    What a lovely line up!

    It's a real shame I can't make it, as a former instructor of mine will be performing I believe in a tub (Tiger Club Turbulent team)

    Re: HEXUS.social - Shoreham airshow Saturday 30th August

    I have new toys to point at the flying machines - Nikon D3300 and Tamron SP AF 70-300 F/4-5.6 Di VC USD. I think Tamron were actively trying to get as many letters into that name as possible!
    Hopefully I'll get some pics I'm happy with unlike at Eastbourne, but I have a strong suspicion the problems don't lie with the equipment...

    I'm looking to get there for around 9:30. That allows me enough time for traffic or, if it's an easy run, time to have a look at some of the stalls etc before the planes.

    As for where to meet, I have no idea what will be there other than the entrance! I've still got your mobile number from Eastbourne so I can give you a ring when I get there.

    Hey Bagnaj, sorry I missed your call on Saturday, I left my phone at the office and have just seen it.

    I couldn't make it to this show, I was feeling a bit unwell over the weekend, so sat at home playing Elite Dangerous. Was it a good show? Get some decent pics?

    Show was good, weather was dry at least, but overcast and dark for a lot of the day so not ideal for pics.

    In a moment of complete "my badness" - I completely forgot to thank Cat for organising this get -together - and as he did organise it - he gets the coveted "green label" award.

    Its actually the height of Moose fashion to get pond weed dangling from their antlers - is that close enough??

    No way! Can't believe I missed this.. Often go to the Eastbourne airshow and with my father living not far from Shoreham (he lives in Rustington) it'd have been easy to get to. Can't wait for the pictures
