Yep and even if it was fixed it wouldn't fly at Bournemouth because pilot daughter is getting married.

Bloody disgraceful, I don't know why the police don't have more powers when it comes to this, although most seem to frightened to get involved with travellers.

The BBMF flypast was also for Jon Egging as his mother will be at the opening of the airshow and discussing plans to move the memorial sculpture due to it's precarious position on a section of recently collapsed cliff top.

Perhaps the beach assault could be directed at taking out these parasites.

As mentioned above weather forecast for tomorrow looking rather wet and for Saturday unseasonably strong winds on the southerly coast; hopefully will not be as bad as predicted, but a shame after the good weather we have experienced recently.

I couldn't get down during the day yesterday but we went to the night air. Absolutely amazing and Brendan O'Brien in Otto was just Crazy! If anyone can make it down to the night air I would certainly go. Such a great atmosphere!

It's currently very heavy rain and looks like it might clear about 3. However it's looking pretty good for the evening weather wise! :smile:

That is a great shame, luckily there are many items to look at on land, but Bournemouth needed this to succeed after the losses of some big "people magnets".

Sounds as thought they're rescheduling some of the acts for this evening. Typhoon is now just after 8pm. Sounds like b24 and Sally b doing some sort of formation between 7.30 - 8. Talk of the reds displaying this evening too. :clap:

Fair play to the organisers, must not be easy to shift an entire schedule like that. Also, to the pilots and support staff, doing their best to get in the air and display, in horrendous conditions. I hope it works out for all concerned.
