Hello

Is there by any chance a showground map that could be posted on the forum.

I cannot see one on the show web site.

Many thanks

Sadly no spotters package this time.

There are good locations for spotting around Sola Airport. Some with platforms and some without.
They should be good for viewing arrivals and practices on the friday before the show.

The show will be best when viewed from inside the showground.

Tickets can be bought in advance here:

Choose the non-Aftenbladetkort option.
They can be printed. There will be scanners at the gates.

Welcome to Sola!

I do not know the reason for their cancellation, and the timeframe from now and to the show next weekend is sadly a bit to short to get a replacement.
Still lots of good stuff to see!

This could be another question for Eirik's knowledge. Will there be many of the display items rehearsing on Friday. Obviously scheduled airport movements and arrivals for the show will be taking place but I was hoping I may catch a few acts after arriving Friday afternoon.

Thanks Eirik. My flight is due to arrive at 14.35 so I have to hope the 104 is a little late, unless the airport has a viewing area I can sprint to after clearing the arrivals hall. :smile:

Hi Eirik,

Our flights depart Sola late afternoon Monday. Do you have any information on departure times. Also are there any spotter areas, other than the flying club, at the airport.

Paul, airshow tickets booked !!!

The team behind Starfighter 637 (LN-STF) reports that a leak was discovered after todays testflight. The tail section and engine has to come off for them to be able to do the repair. The work is time consuming, and sadly it can not be done in time for Sola Airshow.
