Cheers for that! I believe the datum is now the large white building on the clifftop (The Albany), which would agree with what you have said. I'm going to cycle along the beach tonight for a 'suss out' of the place so I should report back later

So after a cycle down the beach revealed the following:
- The marquees and main arena have moved east as Keety said
- Fonix and other people were setting up some sort of platform next to where the Jon Egging memorial is near the old commentary position
- The new commentary position is now set up in a little enclosure in front of the grassy area near the Ocean view hotel, so yet again further east.

Hope this is of some help! :smile:


Does this east move mean that the above is no longer a good spot?

Nope should still be fine. The east overcliff goes quite a way along so if you just head east a bit past the new commentary position your still get a great view. Basically, just follow the road down East a little bit. :smile:

Have never done Bournemouth since they stopped having the show at Hurn so haven't a clue as to what is where on the seafront. Any chance you could provide a map reference or some other indication where a good position on the east cliff would be please?

Don't have a clue how to get the image to show but hopefully the link is of some help. Should show roughly where you might want to go on the Overcliff.

Okay the pilot has now confirmed it so...
At 20:15 on Friday night there will be a sunset Typhoon Display! I pretended I didn't know so I could keep it under wraps! Hope people enjoy it!

Not really a surprise though as it was pretty obvious if you think about it but by mentioning it in advance as though it's top secret just annoys people.

Is this only happening on the Friday? taking the kids down on Saturday would have been a good way to end the day,plus Fridays weather is looking a tad ominous at the moment.

Thanks for the link but I get a "don't have permission" error message. Would you suggest to the east or west of the Cliff Lift?

Anywhere on East Overcliff Drive will give you a nice view................park in Boscombe for an easier place to park and get away from, .........better food up there as well. :smile:

BBMF just arrived at Bournemouth airport, gave a nice fly past with the fighters breaking off before landing. Lanc did a missed approach/touch and go, couldn't exactly see it as the flying club cafe is closed and the area blocked off.

Looks like the BBMF are displaying twice tomorrow, at 11:00 and 14:00? Seems a little weird considering the rest of the flying is only from 2pm-3:45pm

Interesting, probably a practice with the Lanc aswell since the datum has moved and she hasn't been here since 2014. There is due to be a flypast of some sort at 10:00 tomorrow along the beach but the Bournemouth Air Festival team haven't said what it is

Not sure if doing Saturday or Sunday now seeing as there weather doesn't look good at moment :sweat: I see there Two Royal Navy Hawks taking part in the beach assault as well as a Merlin & Wildcat and also the reason the Sea Vixen is not displaying is because Simon Hargreaves daughter is getting married on Saturday.
