V-22 Osprey

There is something to be said for the sleak style of the B-1B Lancer, though the F16 is much more interesting to watch with all it's stunts. However, I would never have thought that I would know what a V-22 Osprey was.

Working next to Farnborough Airport becomes an event for about 2 weeks a year every two years when the Farnborough Airshow arrives.

Last week we where watching fighter planes and helicopters practising stunts every day, and this week they have all been showing off, but non as much as the Red Arrows when they escorted the new Airbus 380 past the viewing building.

But what is the airshow really about? Is it about fancy stunts or is it all about trade?

If you work next to the airport it is about timing your going to and from work to avoid the queuing. The other day I queued 20 minutes just to get out of the car park!
