It seems to be extremely difficult to organize flight simulator events in the UK. After the demise of the Mark Silcock shows and the rather cozy RC Simulation fairs in Birmingham, now the Astrasim Cosford show has been canceled. This one too had been announced with a lot of fanfare, only to have its candles blown out before lighting them already. There is still the Fligth and Trains Simulation show on November 8th in Birmingham, but that one has received mixed reviews in the past and is held on the same day as the Dutch FS Weekend.
Although unfortunate for the British flightsim enthusiasts,Â there are still some good shows around in Europe, notably those in Milano, Lisbon, France (Le Bourget), Paderborn in Germany (Aerosoft), and of course by far the largest one, the FS Weekend in Holland !
