BBMF timings

Postby capercaillie on Wed 27 Jun 2018, 11:15 am

Can anyone point me in the direction of where the BBMF have their flypast timings posted. It may be on twitter or facebook or something which means I may not be able to see it as I'm a social media dinosaur, but I'm after what time the Lancaster will be at Shobdon this weekend for its flypast. Any help appreciated. :biggrin:

Facebook.

https://m.facebook.com/BBMF.Official

But don’t usually post them up until Thursday or Friday.

Also could try Brevet’s Weekender NOTAMS when he posts them tomorrow ( or Friday ).

Had a look at the NOTAM and it says :

SCHEDULE: JUN 30 1410-1610, JUL 01 1235-1435

So not much help other than it’s somewhere between 3:10 and 5:10pm on the Saturday.

Just a note of caution re the 'published' timings; sometimes the published times vary to what organisers are notified by the pilots.

During last weekend's Cockpit-Fest I was the contact at NAM and the timings I was advised by the pilots, were different on both days to what was published mid-week e.g. on Saturday it varied by 10 minutes, while on Sunday by 2 hours.

Two brilliant flypasts by the BBMF took place at the times that I was told, not what was on the schedule.

As ever I still got it in the neck from a few visitors asking why I made them appear too early!! :dizzy: :surrender:

I believe the Lanc is also flying the length of the Severn Valley Railway on Saturday (don't know haw it passed gauging, though... :whistle: ).
And as the smart ship grew,
In stature, grace and hue,
In shadowy silent distance grew the iceberg too....
