is it worth watching the show from St. Aubin itself or is it too far away? Not really a fan of having the sun in my face like last year and I spent most of it cleaning salt off my camera.

Tried St Aubins. Not good in my opinion much too far away. Couple of shots as aircraft come overhead but that’s it.

Does anyone know where the flightline is.
The videos I've seen recently were taken from around the West Park area in St Helier, looked like they were coming in from across the harbour, then curving around the bay towards St Aubin.
I was just going to aim to watch from West Park area. Good/bad idea?

The display follows the line of the bay but the displays focus on the St. Helier side. It's tricky now that the castle is out of bounds to find a really decent spot.

I think I'll just stick with where I was going to go then. Maybe find somewhere random for Wednesday's practice displays

Looks like it is only the Viggen and Draken that the SwHF will provide. Mind you there is also a Swedish AF Saab 340 on support, just hope it stays?

The Hunter will not be appearing this year, unfortunately. Hopefully next year!

At a guess maybe the La Ferté Alais based example. But we'll know for sure soon enough.
