Flights booked, £60 on Easyjet, cheaper than going to Cosford! Apart from the reds and BBMF anybody heard of any other participation? Would like to see the return of the Alize, Paris and Zephyr as I missed last year.

If you are coming from Gatwick, yes.
A quick scan of the EasyJet website shows a day return for £70 on 13th....early start though!

It is doable, having done it in 2014, but due to the road closures enforced for the display, the traffic heading north from St Helier immediately after the show is really heavy, and if you're relying on the buses you could get stuck coming back up to the airport.

You should have enough time. Personally I stay at the airport and photograph from the flying club on the end of the runway. Plus I get to spend some time with friends and have a few beers.

Yeah I'd say its doable, last year I arrived and headed straight into St Helier to get some breakfast and have a mooch around. If anything I had too much time to kill before the show started. At the end of the day I had enough time to go for a sit down meal and a couple of cocktails before heading back to the airport to prop up the bar and review my pitiful photos before my flight home.

I wont be returning this year as 1; the sun is in your face all day, 2; the aircraft may as well be flying over Guernsey, 3; spent most of the day cleaning salt off my lens.

No different to normal. The preliminary list doesn't normally appear until roughly two months before the show.

It would appear that the Norwegian Spitfire Foundations' P-51D Mustang is also due to attend.

The Jersey Air Display website has been revamped - http://www.jerseyairdisplay.org.uk/

Their aircraft list includes a few that I haven't seen announced yet - a pair of Dassault Flamants, Team Reva and the Swedish Historic Flight's SK60. The Noratlas and Beech 19 are both missing - but are not listed in cancellations either, so I'm a little sceptical about its accuracy. Either way, it's looking like a great lineup.

The Norwegian Spitfire Foundation have, as indicated above, confirmed that their Mustang, "The Shark" is attending, but it doesn't seem to have been announced officially by the organisers yet.

  • Avro XIX (Anson) G-AHKX/TX176 (BAe/Shuttleworth)
  • Avro Lancaster B.1 PA474 (RAF/BBMF)
  • BAe Hawk T.1A x9 (RAF/Red Arrows)
  • Beech 19 G-BKGL/1164
  • CAC Boomerang N32CS/A46-139
  • Dassault MD315 Flamant x2
  • Hawker Hurricane (RAF/BBMF)
  • Hawker Sea Fury G-RNHF/VX281 (Navy Wings)
  • Nord Noratlas 105
  • North American OV-10 Bronco F-AZKM (MEAC)
  • North American P-51D Mustang G-SHWN (NSF) - self-confirmed
  • Pitts S2S Special G-EWIZ (Rich Goodwin)
  • Rutan EZ x3 (Team Reva)
  • Shorts Tucano (RAF) - Static
  • Supermarine Spitfire (RAF/BBMF)
  • Supermarine Spitfire Mk.XIX (Rolls Royce)
  • Saab Drakken (SwAFHF)
  • Saab Lansen x2 (SwAFHF)
  • Saab SK60 (SwAFHF)
  • Saab Viggen (SwAFHF)
  • Yakovlev Yak-3U
Red: Not listed on JAD website
Blue: Listed on JAD website but not announced elsewhere

Looking good, never seen a Norseman or Boomerang before and not seen a Norrie fly since the 80's. Not that I will be going to the display, much prefer staying at the aeroclub as have some friends there and its a good photo location.
