No, as there's not a Venom at the show.

Was there a delay today or is the live stream not actually live? The schedule says the Lynx was due to display at 12:35 but it's now 13:30 and the Lynx has just appeared on the live stream. I don't know what's been before as I've only just started watching it!

Also, a quick question, the commentator said the Apache doesn't display at Bournemouth as they can't display it over water, why is that?

It does make you wonder if a free airshow like Bournemouth can arrange a classic five ship classic flypast, why on earth could the expensive RIAT not?

Shame I can't make it tomorrow. Surely this must go down as the formation/flying event of the year.

It is good to see some shows thinking a little bit beyond the predictable and doing something for the enthusiast rather than just what they can get cheaply or for free.

Good to see the tigers trying new things out, one used a wingsuit and one cut his parachute. Feel sad for the poor people on a boat directly under a merlin when it was landing on the frigate. Accourding to the Air Festival team nearly 1000 boats there today and 404,000 people. Looked like the trade stalls made a lot of money today.

Lets hope the Vulcan raised a lot so they can stop begging for money :whistle:

No Vulcan today due to a fuel leak :
Please note that due to a fuel leak from one of the Vulcan's tanks, today's flight has had to be cancelled for safety reasons. We are obviously extremely upset by this, but safety is our number one concern. More news when we have it, but to confirm NO FLIGHT TODAY

The music is seriously annoying,When theres no music or commentary if you turn the volume right up you can hear faint engine noise. :sad:

PlanesTV please turn the outside volume up and everything else down.

No heritage flypast it seems. Vulcan gone tech, there were problems with the Vampire, now the Sea Vixen pilot has apparently been called back on military duties. :sad:

Only went for the Vulcan and Vixen :( Guessed if they don't get the funds for the mods it would have been the last time I saw her, gutted. Great finale from the Hunter though in some great light.

Me too, such a shame as I was really looking forward to them. Enjoyed the Typhoon and the Blades though, just a shame what could have been a highlight of the airshow year didn't pan out.

The typhoon only lasted 6 minutes. Very disappointing end to the day really, the vintage flypast would have been an amazing sight, maybe too much to expect a cumulative age of 325yrs old to all fly together.

Yet they had the Army Lynx :wink:

I went on Saturday had a great day such a shame some acts like to stay out to sea a bit especially BBMF I liked the JP T5 display as that came really close to the crowds and Flapjack does brilliant in Miss Demeanour, I can finally say what a fantastic Typhoon display the best one since the Typhoon came onto the airshow circuit. The only down sides was that the BBMF sent one of there Mk XIX along as well seeing as we already had the Rolls Royce Mk XIX and the Sea Vixen displayed in the evening but we left after the Typhoon as we had to get back to Kent Via Fleet Services.

You can now see why this is becoming one of the most popular airshow in the world with a attendance of 400,000 visitors and 900 boats bring on next year.

Had a great 4 days, Great flying displays and really enjoyed Sally - B probably as she came so close! JP5, Gerald Cooper and the Patrouille Reva stood out against lots of other displays :smile:
Doesn't get much better for a free airshow! Can't forget the evening display from the sea vixen, Just great. Shame about the cancellations on Sunday though :smile:

The Vulcan swung it for me to go for the first time: absolutely gutted when Vulcan, Vixen and Vampire all failed on the day.

Great show for the most part though.

BBMF could have come lower and I agree with the poster who said it was a shame they brought a XIX given RR's Spit being there - I was disappointed that stayed as high as BBMF too!

Miss Demeanour and Sally B stole the show for me, but the Chinook and Merlin were pretty damn good as well.

Back next year for sure!
