Hi guys, just wondering whether anyone could post a list of the Flying Aircraft which appeared on Saturday please? Unfortunately I was unable to get to Prestwick to see the Spare Aircraft so I only require the Aircraft which flew in the Display(s) please.

It's been on the radio news all afternoon, Closer for me but surely a bit of a nightmare for Edinburgh ATC amongst other things? Nice illustration on the link :lol:

Leuchars considered unsuitable! I suppose its not that odd under the current climate with the Army doubtless wanting to avoid the general public milling around anywhere inside the confines of even just the airfield. But it does seem supremely ironic. Leuchars could possibly be a likely operating base for any participants. :cuppa:

Too true FB, Kirkcaldy is such a strange choice to have a show maybe because a seaside show has less to worry about with regards to safety of the surrounding areas and general public. Getting in and out will be a nightmare so will just have to wait and see what develops...probably no static at the hosting airport either which a lot of the guys missed since Prestwick stopped that.

Leuchars is *the* most suitable place. (Since Nineteen canteen until 2013).
I want to see a flying Mosquito in the UK. I'm supporting The People's Mosquito.

Its not a question of the most suitable venue, it is a question of who is going to pay for the event. From the newspaper clip it appears that Kirkcaldy have a waterfront development to promote.
I would just be thankful that Scotland might be getting any kind of seafront air display next year, regardless of location.

Indeed, and presumably there is at least some scope for basing some of the display assets at Leuchars. So in some small way, Leuchars might well come back as an airshow venue, if only as host for aircraft displaying at Kirkcaldy waterfront.

I used to work in Kirkcaldy, and can picture clearly the area which they presumably have in mind. It's not too different from the Ayr venue, maybe a slightly less attractive backdrop but similar enough in shape and layout to have obvious appeal to the organisers.
Posting comments on an aviation-related chatroom, are ya? Looks like it an' all...
