Behind the scenes at an airshow; the death of the Thruster brand
Show Notes

We go behind the scenes at the Battle of Britain airshow. How do you run an event like this? What goes into preparing to fly formation? How do you commentate? What happens behind the closed doors at the pilots' briefing?
And if you wanted to set up an airshow, how would you do that?
I also talk to Mark Garner, who bought the Thruster brand, but then closed the doors on it. What went wrong? And what does his experience tell us about the future of microlighting?
The British Microliight Aircraft Association offered a response.
