They're definitely leaving it a little late. From a purely personal point of view, I would also like to see some different Spitfires at Old Warden other than N3200 and MH434.

I’m guessing that’s 356 on the list now. Weather not looking good at the moment though.

An excellent line-up, and all for £14 as an SVAS member, including parking and access to the paddock to get up close to the aircraft during the afternoon. 4 times as many Spitfires as Duxford the following weekend at less than 1/3 the price! :smile:

Depends where you look - some suggest there's a chance of some sunshine, others say cloudy all day.

Still not sure I can be bothered with this one. Struggling to muster much enthusiasm for airshows at the moment. :dunno:

That's why I said might ;)

Looks like there's showers around so Old Warden might catch a few, but it could be a nice evening.

Still not seeing much movement in the forecasts. My phone, which is usually pretty reliable, says no sun until 8pm.

Got to pay gate price if I do go too.

When the wheather is patchy like this, no one can accuracy predict what it's going to be like at one place so I use 3 different apps on my phone and average them out!

I've decided not to go.

There are some breaks appearing here in Essex now, but I think I'm inclined to agree with you tbh.

Was a quite heavy shower just before here when coming up the A1 and ground is very wet so hoping that has already passed through. Cloud is certainly a lot heavier than it was when I left Essex Dan, so think you probably have the better weather there than here.

If I look out the window, the cloud is moving north, albeit very slowly...

Lysander and N3200 arrived a little while ago. Wind changed just before they arrived so came in on runway 03 rather than 21.
