Saturday arrivals parking?

Saturday arrivals parking?

Postby binbrook87 on Sun 17 May 2015, 6:57 pm

Planning to visit Cosford station to view the arrivals (like many others I would imagine!) and was wondering where's the best place to park? Presume the museum will be open as normal but can you use the car parks near the station or are they restricted?

Likewise I have alway parked in the overflow car park (turn left before opposite main base gate) and never had any issues. :up:

In a word, crap.

7ft, chain link from the tunnel under the railway bridge to the museum entrance.

But with a conveniently placed railway station to give an elevated view over the fence... :ninja:

Flare Path posted an excellent set of images from last year's show, showing the view from the platform. http://forums.airshows.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=60384

Sorry, I read that as, just wanting to look over the fence and not be on the platform. Yes the platform is good to view from, sounds like it's going to be crowded though!

Peter, will there be any list put up of when were expecting certain aircraft to turn up? going to be around on the Saturday to (hopefully) catch the Polish & Italian choppers in the air.
