I’ve never seen a trailer for an airshow but this one makes me think all airshows should make one.
This is a trailer for the 2012 Flying Legends Air Show at Duxford Airfield in Cambridgeshire, UK. The show will be held on Saturday 30th June and Sunday 1st July, for more information and to buy tickets go to www.fighter-collection.com
The nation’s airworthy warbirds have survived, for now, another attempt to knock them out of the sky.
Rep. Sam Graves (R-Mo.), co-chairman of the House GA Caucus, worked with AOPA, EAA, and many other organizations to rally opposition to a potential amendment that would have banned the transfer of military aircraft to civilian operators who planned to fly them. The amendment would have jeopardized existing agreements and grounded all American warbirds.
