Might have to make do with East Fortune this Year due to work colleague being on leave so might not make Sunderland on Friday so hope if I can't make it down there on Saturday might make East Fortune instead? Who knows?

Their Airshow page suggests re closing the show on (EF's) 20th Anniversary year - that honour will fall on the Reds. Quote below taken from said page.

"RAF Aerobatic team the Red Arrows will make a high-octane return to Scotland's National Airshow, topping the bill on the event’s 20th anniversary line-up"

It was on the Typhoon schedule for 2017 display season and as on same weekend as Sunderland would be strange if withdrawn. Unlikely I'd think.

B-17 though - excellent.

Thought so too, just wondering why it's not listed on their (East Fortune Airshow) website, when it seems Typhoon have confirmed, as you have mentioned via their display schedule, and Twitter.

Would be totally shocked and surprised if the Typhoon didn't fly at East Fortune as the flying distance between there and Newcastle/ Sunderland is only minutes in the Typhoon - or any fast jet for that matter.

The Sally B members letter which arrived in the post yesterday lists East Fortune on their flying programme.
