Bad news Eirik, any chance the SWAHF might be able to spare a Viggen or Draaken or something? :sad: Ever the optimist, that's me! :smile:

Sadly the Swedes are flying elsewhere this coming weekend, and we have no time to get a replacement act now.

B-52 going to do a couple of passes on Sunday. That helps to ease the disappointment of the 104 not coming.

Can I just say, I went on both days & had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Even if the weather wasn't that favourable & the CF-104 unfortunately going tech but I still thought it was a great show. Favourite for me was the 2 RNoAF F-16's on the Saturday, they were brilliant IMO :rock: :clap:

Also want to add my thanks to the team who ran the Sola airshow under what could only be described as 'difficult' conditions. I think all the aircraft managed to take off, and land safely, even if a few items where unable to give a full display due to the the very changable weather.
Also thanks to Eirik for the updates leading up to the show, hope you managed to enjoy the weekend.
I will try to upload some photos later.

Thanks Paul
