Re Northolt "public tickets":
"Tickets only available to residents of Harrow, Ealing and Hillingdon, with postcodes that fall in those Boroughs."

Just returned from a lovely afternoon at RAF Honington. On paper it was a cracking afternoon of flying. With all of the RAF teams present in the air, however the Chinook got a bit confused as to where they should have been, and the typhoon went U/S. But one of the crispest and closest red arrows displays I have seen all year.

RAF Benson's Facebook page gives some brief details of this Friday's event (11th August) including timings, which includes the Red Arrows, BBMF and an A400M flypast.

https://www.facebook.com/RAFBenson/post ... 2390641128

Although the event is not open to the public, the will no doubt be opportunities to view from outside. Interesting that they state that the displays will be taking place "just to the north of the airfield" which suggests the disused 06/24 runway may not be the display 'A'-axis.

Hope the weather is a lot better than it is today!
