Everton Osbourne Visitor
I thoroughly enjoyed the show. I managed to have a close look at some of the exhibits before it got crowded, and was impressed by how far the technology has progressed.

The venue itself almost upstaged the show, but not quite!

The Flight Sim Show at Cosford is our main focus event for showcasing our latest and greatest flight sim PCs. It is a professionally organised, well attended event with a very high quality of clientele.
