    Default Salute 2021 (or the cancelled Salute 2020 if you prefer)

    Barring a cholera epidemic, typhoid or a plague of locusts, Salute 2021 will be on 10th April next year.

    Mine is on a plague of Frogs, but to hedge my bet, I will back death of all the firstborn both ways.

    Don't forget it is actually the postponed 2020 event (postponed rather than cancelled so that they didn't have to refund traders booking fees for trade stands)

    So is Salute 2021 going to be postponed until 2022 then? And so on and so forth. Whatever you want to call it - cancelled or postponed - there is still a Salute on the 10th April 2021

    There's planned to be one, who really knows where we will be in April next year? (hopefully not deep in a third wave).

    I was just pointing out that some sneaky stuff happened in postponing the show and that quite a few traders were left out of pocket as a result.

    What about the 2020 Naval Wargames Weekend at the Fleet Air Arm Museum, Yeovilton DM ?

    Hmm, i'm getting ideas.....

    Forget "Triplanes and Tripods", try "Halberstadts and Hornets", First World War fliers in an epic life or death struggle against genetically mutated super-insects!

    Anyone know where you can get suitably sized insect models?

    Any cheapo Pound Shop will probably have a bag of them for a quid. Or you could try seeing how your Triplanes fare against one of these super hornets

    . . . sounding like its "Back to the Future" . . . the Hornets thing reminds me of a book I read in ancient times - likely the 80's - called "Grey Eagles" I think. It was about a group of WWII fighter pilots who take on our modern jet air force with restored Me 109's etc. it was a fun read, but didn't end well as I recall . . .

    Well, if you gas the real ones, then dry them a while, you can use them. Just make sure they are dead!
