I posted about it back in April. http://forums.airshows.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=77430 I know it was a bit early but no one seemed interested then. I've been keeping my eye on it's tour as it's due into Manchester.

I've been following its journey via social media. I'm looking forward to seeing it upon its return at Sion in three weeks.

Has this made Edinburgh yet?. I've heard a rumour that it's cancelled for Manchester.

Thanks, I've looked on the map and yes it's still at Wick. It's just someone on a Manchester Airport forum group has said it's been cancelled for tomorrow. Maybe it's stuck at Wick for some reason.

Found a post on FB. Posted about 4 hours ago.
We well arrived in Wick, Scotland!
We have slightly changed our itinary which means that we are now planning of flying directly towards the south.
London, see you on September 1st!

No other communication or reasons for missing out Edinburgh and Manchester. Needless to say a lot of unhappy people posting replies.

There's got to be a joke about a watch manufacturer being late or something. Capercaillie?
He's done another book. You're joking.

Totally disappointed to hear the Breitling DC.3 never did come to Edinburgh. Probably wouldn't have seen it anyway due work but still sad to hear they never did come to Edinburgh.

They should have got that clever chap who does the Red Arrows commentary to have done the scheduling.

That bright Ling would have sorted them out!
