It's not like a real air show is it? It's indoors! crazy

Thats not the point though.

It's more aimed at General Aviation and flight training.

I'll be there later this morning - should goto bed really !!

Well I took myself upto London and spent £20.60 on train fares along with £20 to get in - what a waste of money, I should have stayed at home.

We were fortunate enough to get 2 tickets for £20 off some bloke who came up to us in the queue otherwise it would have been £40.

I'd have been even more p!$$ed off if I'd spent £40 to get in.

It was a total waste of time. A room full of companies selling different products for FS2004, along with a room full of flight sims running FS2004 (including a full motion seat that plugs into your computer for £6500 - Why not just get a F'in PPL and fly a real plane for less ???).

There were about 10 a/c there, a few flight training schools, that were doing the same as the Flyer show at LHR on a smaller scale in a bigger room, and a few other companies selling other general aviation stuff.

Not impressed - If you are planning to go this weekend, don't bother - go see the Gunther Van Hagen - Bodies exhibition in the next hall, it's much better.
