My only real gripe about the grandtand last year was that it was located annoying off centre which was surprising. However, given that phtoogrpahy was difficult anyway given the direction of the crowdline, not that big a loss.

We had a Dutch NH90 yes, but it didn't fly. The Dutch also brought over two Apaches, one being the display aircraft. One of the highlights of the show!

Pretty sure in 2011 the Mig-29 and French Role Demo were not added until May/June so plenty of time yet.

Last year participants were still being added at the beginning of July although the Initial participant list was out in the middle of March,
Still plenty of time at the moment!

Looking ok. Was thinking perhaps may be a green Merlin there (perhaps) flying as they are soon going to be the future of the CHF. I was told the Black Cats should be 1 mk8 Lynx and a Wildcat but i expect we will have to wait on that till closer to the show.

The website is hosted and updated by the RN Digital Team. The whole RN website is currently undergoing a major revamp so there will be delays. Even at the best of times news of operational commitments, etc takes precedence so any announcements on participation won't be updated immediately.

PARTICIPATION UPDATE:
Only 100 days to go to Air Day! So we thought it was time for some good news. We are delighted to announce that the Belgian Air Force F-16 Solo Display Team will once again be taking part at Air Day. The Team have been fantastic supporters of Air Day in recent years and we look forward to welcoming another flare packed performance from Captain Thys Renaud.


:clap: Excellent addition!
