    Flying Legends '05

    Hi,
    Does anyone know any of the planes that will or may possibly be appearing this year please? I dont mind if they are even a possibilty and not confirmed, I just need an idea, as I need to know whether it will be the best ones to take my frand parents to this year as a surprise.
    Thanks for any help!

    If I had to choose an event to take my frand-parents to (not that I have any) I'd be torn between

    Old Warden - much more intimate, you can stay closer to the car if necessary.

    Legends - fantastic show for enthusiasts, but possibly less ideal for a 'suprise' visit for firstimers. Crowded, queues for the bog, need to be there early, can't sit in / near the car.

    Typing this I've decided that OW is the better bet.

    You may get other opinions.

      Yes, the fighter collection do!

        I guess it depends to an extent on what they would be interested in seeing. If WWII Piston engines is your bag, then I guess Legends would suit. If, however they would appreciate the more intimate approach, as Moggy says, combined with a fantastic atmosphere and some very special and unique aircraft, go to Old Warden (which is also a lot cheaper!).
        I like being grey - it means I can worry without it showing!

          Old Warden, every time.
          Of course I'm completely unbiased...

              Well, the commentary was certainly a work of art...

                I don't think that that is fair to Steve. It was a silly and pointless argument, and should have been buried a long time ago.

                  Actually curious as to where the words Old Warden appeared in the original question.

                  Both are great events/nostalgia hits. If (f)grand parents have recent memories Legends may be more relevant and visually and aurally stunning.

                  If Mrs grand parent doesn't like a/c then Old|Warden has other options.

                    I took the words 'best one(s)' to mean it was a choice between Leg Ends and something else, rather than Leg Ends or staying at home, hence OW as it is in approximately the same area, makes a viable comparison.

                      I could say there is no comparison.

                        Agreed, but OW does have some charm for the non-enthusiast.

                          Legends is probably THE most special display within the year everyone ive to has been fantastic. nostalgia, sound, beauty, and the elgance of it all makes it a show to remember, there is no comparison. my opinion

                            I was 110% OW there Moggy.
                            Simply the best place by miles. Or is that Miles?--as in Woodley.

                              I think these are the truest words.

                              There is no comparison, they are both excellent venues in their own right and we can't really say what Whitefox's oldies are going to enjoy.

                              Who knows? They might really prefer a jet/heavy metal show.

                                        Well, I'm sure us Legends attendees won't object to the Old Warden people coming to join us at the Red Lion. Lets put things into the proper perspective after all..
