The official Airshow DVD and book turned up in my PO Box today. I ordered them at the airshow.
I was aware they were close to being released, because I received a letter from Mandy Deans about three weeks ago and she apologised for taking a while to communicate with me about something I had brought up about the airshow with her due to being busy finishing off the publication of the book and preparing the DVD for manufacturing and distribution.
I'll take a detailed look through the book at watch the DVD next time I get a few days off from work (I just started back at work this morning after a 3½-week break).
If you aren't living life on the edge, you're taking up too much space!

I've had a quick look at the DVD and book which arrived the other day. I cheekily wrote "Blu-ray" on my order form at the show, and although I did not receive a Blu-ray, I did get a note with my order explaining why, which is more than I deserved, quite frankly. It's another nice example of the personal effort that goes into the production and delivery of the airshow and its merchandise.
I have only had time to skim the DVD but the interviews and footage are as good as ever. There are some nice on-board Go-Pro angles which I liked. I was surprised to find myself a little disappointed to discover the USAF commentary stripped from the F-16 routine. The book is full of great images, but I think the layout leaves a little to be desired.
