Cosford Show 2017 video

Recommended Posts

This is quite a nice feel for the show, we are in the background of some shots but no close ups! (Just as well I hear you cry!)

That place was a madhouse - the vendors must be very happy.  Looks like a lot of fun.

I think they should make it a two-day show, there's a lot of time and effort spent in making it happen, then it's over in a blink of the eye!

Judging from the photos and the video, there seems to be plenty of interest from the public to support two days.

Now I know why we weren't featured, the video was shot by a fellow FS news site!

That wasn't nice to 'overlook' you like that, clearly, they aren't "The friendliest Flight Sim Site" on the webs... :)

 

 

The show definitely looks like it could be a two day event. That would be good for the show, local hotels/pubs/economy, and the vendors who put so much work into set up. I've participated in a convention, in which I being the most mechanically competent of our crew ended up setting up and tearing down most of our display.... but I only got to spend one day there of a three day show...our pretty girls did most of the PR upfront stuff. So I can understand the frustration of the 'over in a flash' for all the work feeling.

 

I also noted the wide range of ages present...hopefully a sign that the FS obsession is spreading down through the generations, and will continue growing.

Yes, us old guys are spreading our enthusiasm and knowledge of aviation and simming  to the youngsters, but they're already in to it hence their presence at the show :D

There I am at 1:20, right in the centre wearing green shorts and carrying the clingy pink young one!

Proof I was there Chris :P

Sorry I wasn't able to say hi to anyone really...the stand was a bit busy as we whirled round

I spotted this guy at the show, and actively avoided him. Having a camera on a long stick would have been handy though.. I struggled to get any photos without people photo bombing. 

Shame they were so 'selective' with their coverage. :whis:

I absolutely agree with you, Joe. It would be nice to hit the bar with you guys for an extended chat on Saturday night!

It's a shame we never met on the day, Kevin. I was disappointed that you were unable to join myself, Steve and Stewart in Shrewsbury the night before, so that was a double whammy :(
