Airfield closing time

Airfield closing time

Postby strangelookingalien on Mon 20 Jun 2016, 11:12 pm


I noticed on the website the airfield closes at 5pm. I assume this is referring to air movements and not the showground. Is this correct? What time do they normally start kicking people put?

This is my first show at VL. I am in the grandstand. Any other general advice for a first timer?

If I remember rightly they do like people to start moving off at 5 so they can clear up, but there's no major rush :smile:

In 2015, this happened...

Commentary: "Now that the flying display is over, please do stay around and take your time to look at the ground displays"

Navy personnel: "Please make your way to the exits immediately, the airfield site is now closed!"

So, it's up to who you want to believe I suppose!?

Bout an hour after the flying finishes you start getting the bum rush to the exits.

tis a long ol day for the Navy lads down there.

Navy staff always start ushering everyone out as soon as Commando assault finishes, very tactfully and without any fuss. They like the place cleared as soon as they can as none of them can go home themselves until base is 'empty' of visitors etc!!
