Anyone got dates for East Fortune and Pretwick/Ayr in 2017? Need to sort out my days off from work.

Thanks

Prestwick/Ayr 2017 would appear to be Fri 1st & Sat 2nd Sept from Flightline UK http://www.air-shows.org.uk/ (some sites list Sun 3rd in addition ??)
East Fortune dates don't seem quite so obvious at this time, possibly another victim of increasing CAA Fees?

Thanks Stagger, I had a thought those might be Prestwick's dates, and am assuming East Fortune, if it happens, will be the same weekend as Sunderland. Normally not to bothered this early in the year, but my work are being a pain in the backside about booking holidays this year, so I want to get some dates in for aviation stuff, before the rush.

East Fortune looks set for the 22nd of July :rock: Hope this helps toom317, I understand your predicament,you don't happen to work for the NHS too? That's how they're appearing to be with everyone with regard to annual leave these days! I too plan holidays/time off work around airshows! :biggrin:

Tickets now on sale for Ayr(Scottish International Airshow). From what I can see it appears both days are at Ayr. Very limited web page at present, it will be interesting to see what develops for this years show. I was hoping for another twighlight show and statics at Prestwick on the Sunday, but that does not look to be on the cards.

I saw the tickets going on sale, as it was announced on Facebook! Great social media participation from the Prestwick/Ayr organisers it has to be said. I don't think any lineups have been announced yet, but hopefully I will attend both East Fortune and Ayr/Prestwick this year. :rock:

Beginning to wonder why the Reds are only on Sunday at Ayr? Might only make Saturday which means missing the Reds which would be a pity. Also disappointed about there not being a Static, come on guys Static for 2018 if not this Year.

Answer to unknown74 Reds are flying both days at Portrush, so I'm not sure where they are flying from on the Saturday ? anybody know ? PIK ?

Also BBMF are flying Bournemouth on the Friday, so I every chance they will be flying to PIK straight after that me thinks ?

Also forgot Typhoon is down for Friday the 1st, so I'm assuming this is just arrival only ?

Have just posted on Fighter Control that the Portrush mention for the Reds that weekend got me thinking that while they're only flying at Ayr on the Sunday and due at Portrush on both (which seems rather silly seeing as Ayr is only display Sunday) could it be possible that they may give Ayr a Flypast on Saturday seeing as the may be transiting via Prestwick for Fuel for the trip South?
