Sorry guys, no shots of me taking pictures that I know of, but coming back to the car thing...
Fair enough if it's your own car / Van / SUV
/ Pick-up, but don't the rental guys say anything about the dents in the roof?
I've often thought about buying an old transit van, fitting it with a good and sturdy roof rack with a large plywood platform on and driving that to airshows to get above the OAPs who seem to get there at Stupid-o'clock, and then nab all the best spots along the flight line, and worse still, erect large windbreaks to cordon off 'Their' area. To top it all off they then promptly fall asleep!!!!
Either that or wait for a council clearance auction and buy a cherry picker!
... something tells me airshow security might have something to say about that!
Last year at Waddington I did see one enterprising bunch who brought along a Transit van loaded with Aluminium Scaffolding. Within half an hour they's erected a viewing platform 1.5 times the height of their van! Nice!
