That's actually quite surprising.

I'm sure that will see plenty not going this year now as they're one of if not the main draw for the general public.

Must be a real cut back in terms of budget for them not to be attending.

Its because they're off on tour after Scampton mate, not budget related.

This scenario has happened once before, quite a while ago, back in the days of multiple Harriers and the beach assault. Different times now of course, but it does free display budget up for other stuff. Sea Vixen would work for me :wink:

Just wondering out loud here for a moment...

Could the B-17 be booked as a nod to the 70th anniversary of the USAF? If so would it be likely we would see a couple of mustangs in formation with it?

Wouldn't at all surprise me if the Bronco/Mig 15/Vampire Pair are announced at some point too.

Well at it's height Burtonwood Airbase was the largest USAF base in Europe. Also thinking out loud will Sally B transit down the M62 to flyover the old main runway. So glad I had already decided to give Scampton a miss.
