Trade Day Air Display Times

Trade Day Air Display Times

Postby mstares on Tue 24 Jun 2014, 4:14 pm

Folks,

I see that for the Tuesday trade day, the last shuttle bus back to Heathrow is set for 1620.

When does the flying display typically end on trade days... if I take that last bus will I miss part of the display?

thanks

I've just looked at the website http://www.farnborough.com/Content/Dates-and-Times/6_31/ where it states that the flying display on the Monday is 1330-1600, Tuesday to Thursday is 1415-1645, Friday 1330-1700 and Saturday/Sunday 1230-1730.

Thanks,

The shuttles to other destinations in London,, run as late as 18:00, so I am hoping that this is a typo or oversight. I am staying at a Heathrow area Hotel, so I may have to take one of the 1800 shuttles into London, and take the subway to Hatton Cross station.

I've emailed the show and the shuttle provider and we'll see how they respond.

Mark,
as you in the LHR area have a look at Feltham station from there you should be able to get to one of the 3 stations local to Farnborough, which then offer a free shuttle to and from the airshow site. you can get a bus from Feltham to Hatton Cross/lhr. That will save you a journey into the 'smoke'.

Thanks,

Farnborough replied, and they are checking on the Heathrow shuttle times. I expect they will get an answer from the operator quicker then I would.

Thanks for the Felthan Station tip, that looks to be an ideal alternative should the Heathrow Shuttle not work out.

I went into the 'smoke' on last year's trip to RIAT, rather enjoyed it... Alas, I have a temporary vision issue this year which leaves me feeling a little less than adventurous, so simpler the better.

Cheers

Thanks to all for the help.
