I worked the one in Farnborough as well (once). Working those shows was intense hard work, started at 7AM through to 9 PM, followed by nights out drinking with all the people you met up to 3 AM,. Rinse and repeat that rhythm daily for the duration of the show. Thank goodness I was young back then and had little problem keeping up the pace. Would knock me straight out now!

Paris Air Show : static display was decent enough. For the flight show, the skies were clear with just the right amount of clouds to lend it a good backdrop. I saw what I think is one of the most beautiful helicopters ever: the Airbus "Guépard".

Take your time to find the time, but sure would be great to see a few of those pictures some day!

It's the Grumman F8F Bearcat - originally a fighter plane, modified for air races.

Was at the Paris Air Show yesterday.

I worked there on a couple of occasions when I was younger, but yesterday I was just a happy visitor...

Hey Anzatax, I used to, I had a thread here from 2010 with some pics which I took - but looking at it now the pics all disappeared. I think the server hosting the pics went out of service.

But its been a long while now. I should perhaps get back to it!

What about you? Easy to spot planes in SIN? you would have a great selection of heavies there.

Great, cheers.

Based my airline in Lagos. Always a challenge to start off in sub-Saharan Africa, let's see how it goes.

Thanks. I like I think I'm gonna spend some time trainspotting there. is quite specific, I love to see the time and effort that people put into their hobbies, and the result.

Do you think we will end up in the Guinness Book of Records for being the first to count to 10,000?

Hi there Stephen,

Would like to test it out as well (I'll just operate a small airline).

My ID is #36799

I'm curious what the changes are.


I really enjoy the regular relaxing rhythm a train makes when you travel on it ; to sit back and observe city-scapes and open countryside gliding smoothly past your window. Trains are beautiful machines too, especially the old locomotives. It's nice to visualize trains rolling through the vast crisscrossed and interconnected track network. To imagine all the people involved in the railroad's more-or-less efficient functioning: the mechanical engineers, the boilermen, the brakemen, the coal shovellers, the station-masters, the pointsmen and the porters, the train dispatchers, the foremen and the bridge builders, and the track layers and the surveyors, and the tunnel diggers, and also the ticket inspectors.

But I still prefers anything that flies.

If you had ONE really cool railroad or train website to recommend, which one would it be?

4694 it is, then!

I'm very careful with recycling things and always showing the Love towards our planet. However I have to admit I'm biased towards aviation: fly on!

I take comfort that engines are becoming always more fuel efficient. I know its a large source of pollution, but I just like aircraft and traveling too much!
