2017 Yeovilton Airday

Postby The Star of Woo on Mon 25 Jul 2016, 7:18 pm

Has anyone got dates yet for the 2017 Yeovilton and Culdrose Air Show's please, I hear a rumour that the Audrey Hewlen Agency may not be doing the organising, which could well be why I can't find any dates anywhere for them.

Is there not an issue with available Runway at VL in 2017 which will prevent the show?

I see no reason why it wouldn't (if any I'd say it was more likely to go ahead if there was any question).

Indeed. I remember them attending in 2007 but don't think they've been since?

In fact, Yeovilton might be the only display in the UK where you will see them using flares???

Nope they haven't been for a decade, really looking forward to seeing them as didn't get to see them fly at RIAT last year due to the poor weather Sunday morning.

Different .... and entertaining, although it can seem to drag on a bit.

It can be very good if reasonably close to the crowd line, too distant and it's a bit ineffective.

They used them in 2007, although only at the end of the display IIRC.

I feel like the participants thus far would have been better announced in reverse order...
