Don't shoot the messenger if I'm wrong, but the BBC gave an ETA of 1927hrs during their coverage yesterday.


Edit: Had a quick peek on the BBC News website, and they give the arrival time of 'just before 1930bst'.

Nice set of photos Jeff, I like this livery a lot more than the other one (Dove)!

Some of the support BMW cars were on base earlier, these are in the same livery as the Firefly A319, but without the BA tail.

I think it's absolutely beautiful. Not that I'm biased, but I do like it very much
