Going to go out on a limb and say, that I have a feeling that we'll be seeing possibly a couple more added in the next 43 days till the show.

Compared to last year and the year before they've certainly announced the displays sooner, rather then keeping everyone waiting.

You'll find the Turbulent Team provide a much more leisurely comfort break. And you'll be missing far less than if you turned away from the Tutor display, which quiet as it is, is real aerobatics.

Likewise, assuming decent weather and being able to get a flyer and get there in time, I'd like to give it a go. The latter is a challenge if you aren't very local, on a Friday night, in term time.

I'm the same, weather looks a bit dodgy early evening. Going to see how it looks mid afternoon tomorrow. At least Saturday and Sunday look OK weather wise.

Does anyone know what's basing from where? Typhoon pair are going into Liverpool airport tomorrow - no-one confirmed a time yet.

BBMF? Are we expecting just a Spitfire still or the full trio? Sometimes they use LJLA too...

Postby Mooshie1956 on Thu 14 Sep 2017, 7:47 pm

Don't the BBMF usually use Blackpool as there base for the Southport show. I was going to look on a site for Liverpool tomorrow but it seems to of disappeared.

Edit as far as I know it's the Lancaster and at least a Spitfire.

Typhoon pair should be at LPL around 11:00 but could easily be 30mins either side.....

Thanks guys, very helpful as always.

Will keep a watch on here & the other forums tomorrow. Pity there's no military choppers there this year as fancied trying to find a good spot at Woodvale on Saturday for some closeup shots.

Certainly seems that the participants are scattered around a fair bit...

Went past Woodvale before on the train, and couldn't see anything outside for the Airshow.

Sun's cracking the flags currently so hopefully everything will go ahead tonight.
