That's good news. Let's hope the impending Shoreham report doesn't reset everything and we end up with a 450m display line or something bonkers.

Brilliant news. It went from being a top class show in 2015 to a damp squib last year. Just a shame that it clashes with Sanicole. But it'll be back on my calendar for 2018 now.

2015 was absolutely outstanding. If we get the weather, this could be just as good, if not better with the Fury in mind!

Ditto! There will be more to add, I am sure, plus there are also many other visitors that aren't usually on the list too. I hope the Fury lands as it's great to watch aircraft take off and land on the strip at Cosby and this'll be something else!

Twin stick Buchon has got me VERY interested, absolutely corking line-up. Plus, if the light is similar to the later displays in 2015, then I imagine the photos will be glorious

According to the Sally B website, they are only displaying at Cosby on the Sunday.
Hopefully all of the other aircraft will display on both days as the Victory Show website does not mention this.

Better line up and display in the air and on the Ground then the Scampton airshow.
Half the price also.
Great show and all set up in a farmer field, puts the Scampton fiasco in the shade.

Yes, if anyone loves warbirds then really no excuse not to be in Cosby this weekend :grin: I've been looking forward to this one for a long long time.

Be very surprised if the Twin stick makes it.

Yes, perhaps Duxford's September show is more of a realistic timescale for it's first airshow appearance.
