A few bits I was interested in, having never been to Farnborough before, but just had a look and seen that the gate price is actually £48!!!!!!! That is astonishing!

I don't care if there is a Harrier. I'm out.

I'm heading down tomorrow, with the loss of the F35 and now possibly the P8 flying display, this is looking like the biggest waste of £46 I've ever spent on an airshow!
Very disappointing...

Cheers, I must say I was looking forward to the P-8, rather frustrating that Boeing couldn't keep the 789 at the Airshow for another two displays!

The P-8 was rolled into a hangar in the morning and then rolled out late afternoon with no display

Connie flew

787-900 departed back to the states about 1030-1130 (not quite sure on exact time but was a bit before the show)

On Friday it was "SM520" that was flying. Don't know about today. I did hear about the Rolls Spit going tech, but my brain is frazzled, and I cannot remember where I heard that (went to Waddo and RIAT, so everything is a blur).

Stuff the tarted-up Boring 737 , that Sea Fury was a proper display ( albeit spoilt by PlanesTV's poor camera-work & their needless cutting away to watch XH558 being parked-up :facepalm: )
