I sincerely hope these pages encourage you to visit an airshow or aviation event in 2019. If you’re a photographer or have some journalistic flair please don’t hesitate in submitting a report for publication on this website or in the TAS Magazine (Winged Words). Please send your photos and / or reports to peter@airportsol.com

On a personal note, I’ve got “slots booked” at several of the events listed above, so all being well I hope to be reporting back with more photos and stories throughout the year. It’s certainly our intention (with your help) to report on as many events as we can.

If you see me at a show please pop over and say hello. In the mean time ….enjoy your travels and the many events planned for 2019. There’s certainly some classics in the calendar!

Peter Hampson.
