Sea Vixen display commentator at Culdrose yesterday said the Vixen would be flying at Bournemouth, Shoreham and Dawlish next month.

Would be nice if correct. :smile:

Hi
Could anyone please put the postcode for smugglers please.
Have a bad virus which is downloading non stop adverts/pop-ups.
This is my tenth time at trying to get on here but it keeps locking up.
So many thanks in advance as my laptop is more like a toaster at the moment.
Have tried many programs but me thinks a format is now the only way.

Really easy to find. Come out of Dawlish on coast road towards Torquay. It's on the left about 2 miles out of town. Can't miss it

Well, well, well. Maybe I do get one last goodbye. I am more than happy to donate and fair play for the idea but this is so late! 8 Days! Wish this had been set up sooner. Still, mild optimism that they wouldn't dangle a carrot like this if they aren't confident in raising the money. Donated and fingers, toes and all other bits crossed.

Planning on doing Dawlish this year for a change of scenery away from Bournemouth.
Now I hear the Smugglers inn area is the place to be so that is where I want to head.
My question is ..... What's the score with parking etc ? And is it a case of arriving super early to bag a spot ?
Any pointers greatly appreciated !

Thanks

Really hope they manage to secure the Vulcan (even if they don't hit the target). Agree it should have been set up much earlier.
£10 donated and fingers crossed!

Thanks for the donations guys, another one thousand tenners and we will be there.... :sweat: :sweat:

Yes, in an idea world we would love to have all this stuff set up months in advance..in reality it doesn't happen that way....there is a million and one reasons why...The donations button has been on the site all year and surely the line up already assembled was worth a £10 of anyone's money before our ambitious attempt to book the Vulcan..... :whistle: but hey it is what it is, we will give it our best shot.... :dunno: :dunno:

Thanks Kev. Here's hoping. Did I also see you'll be getting an RAF sea king sar demo? That'll be the last ever one, surely?

Completely agree, we always donate at the show rather than online, but having a visible target to reach is a good motivator to donate some money before the day.

And as you say, even if the Vulcan doesn't appear the show is well worth people's donations.

Keeping fingers crossed that target is reached and weather plays ball!
Looking like a great show this year anyway to be honest; can't wait.

Are the Friday times in the programme? Would like to see the demo again as not seen with the RAF for some time and will be my last chance I reckon.

Good chance it will be everyone's last chance I think (unless they're at Chivenor)!

As above: "there will be a Yellow Sea King here on Friday only..its Chivenor's families day on the Saturday....." As far as I know those as the last RAF Sar demos down from now on - would be glad to be corrected.
