Sorry if this is in the wrong thread but is there a viewing area for anything leaving on Monday. If so, does anyone know what will be leaving Monday ? Thanks.

2x RN Avengers were on FR24 and lost them around Yeovil so guess they landed.

I thought that odd too, was expecting a spare but not the BoB one to be present, perhaps a last minute static addition?

I hope the BoB one is flying as it went tech for Cosford and I've no idea if I'll get another chance to see it this year.

I assumed it was only used in the Synchro pair so wasn't expecting it to attend, would be a pleasant surprise if it did display though as I too missed it at Cosford.

LTD...LTD!

What road closure are you referring to? I was planning to come down the B3151 from Somerton to Ilchester. Please don't tell me that that road is closed !!

Made sense at Cosford though as they had a solo Typhoon display and the Synchro display later in the day, with only the solo due to display at Yeovilton I find it odd that three will be present but at least they have a backup for the backup.

The Vulcan transit info has been published and confirms the 15:00 arrival time I posted above.
