It's a real bugbear of mine when shows (particularly official sites) are unable to correctly spell the names of participating aircraft. 'Stamp'? 'Antanov?'

Inclined to agree. Also wouldn't make two words of 'seaplane' or hyphenate 'biplane' and some of the designations fall a bit short but I think it's got to be presumed the list's been compiled by non-aviation folk...

Still, at least they got 'Hangar' right! :grin:

Well it's starting to look like a list of British airshows rather than anything else. I think if I wanted to I could probably get my house added to their provisional calendar :-o

Indeed, only worth getting excited about if they were confirmed by the show itself.

Please will people try and understand...
For most shows and teams, 'provisional' means its highly likely to happen pending one or two issues/delays being resolved. In this case it looks like 'provisional' means a show has asked for a quote - a perfectly normal part of airshow planning - not in the slightest way a commitment towards meaning the aircraft will be at the show... :wall:

Airshow website has Sea Vixen flying sunday - a couple more additions and it should be a good event.

Note they have a confirmed appearance in Denmark also on 19th but it would be good to see them in at least one UK airshow this year.
