Some of it went this evening, a lot of the rotary wing aircraft have gone to Westlands for the familys open day tomorrow, and the French Navy left just under an hour ago. It might be worth going down tomorrow for the C-17, A-10's & Tiffys as I assume they will leave then.

Anyone sure there's any departures tomorrow ? They usually hold off until Monday. Specifically interested in the a-10's.

Keep an eye on the Vulcans twitter and facebook accounts in the morning as the newsletter states they will announce timings at 9:30am tomorrow. With any luck it won't be announced that the Vulcan has already left or is departing VL in 3 minutes time as it's an hours drive for me!

Winds can change in the blink of an eye, if you're planning on attending simply look at the wind sock when you arrive!
