Also quite nice to have a flying timetable without it being printed in a programme that you have to pay for...

If anyone wonders what the Rans S6 is that is appearing in the flying display and wonders why something like that is included, it is the aircraft that has been built by youngsters under the Build A Plane scheme.

Thank you for the schedule Brian.

There is lots of good advice here, thank you. It has been many years since I've been at Farnborough, where on the flightline would you suggest a good spot? W - Centre - E?

Given the mega temps likely tomorrow I probably won't rush to get to the airfield mega early. Is it likely that I can get there, say 10-10:30ish and still be able to get near to the front of the flightline?

Thanks in advance guys :-)

Has the Spanish Sea Harrier been validated for the air show?

Heard that it hasn't :sad:

There are videos of the Harrier displaying at FIA14 so I assume they are of the validation.

Hope everybody going at the weekend has a brilliant time at what looks like a brilliant show, I am particularly looking forward to the Constellation, Harrier and Poseidon. I cannot wait to see your pictures and I'm sure they will be great- have a nice time. :smile:

Does anybody know if stuff flying on Sunday is likely to depart after displaying, or wait until Monday? I'm thinking Connie, Vulcan and Harrier in particular?

Personally I'd reckon the Harrier and Vulcan won't leave on the Sunday.

The Harrier because there are two aircraft onsite, one of which is in the static, so unless they drag that out of the static and start it up etc, the pair (and any support aircraft) are more likely to leave after the show has finished.

I believe the Vulcan is going straight to Yeovilton from Farnborough so she'll likely depart sometime during the week for that.

Don't know about the Connie. A lot of departures could depend on weather, Sunday isn't looking too settled in places either, so some may choose to wait it out until Monday (though I've yet to see a forecast for Monday).
I have a good pilot and a safe pilot. And the safe pilot is in charge of the good pilot.

KC-10 stayed in static at 2012 show so hopefully will still be there, maybe they move it to where the 787 is?

I am now going Sunday as the weather looks better.

One of the Red Arrows has just suffered a bird strike mid display (Red 8) so the display has been paused while an in flight visual inspection is made. That's 3 bird strikes in as many weeks for the Red Arrows! Red 8 landed safely and the rest continued with a flypast before finishing.

Dreamliner and Poseiden apparently cancelled so just the Turbo fan, EA500, Vulcan and Spitfire left for today.
