Typhoon is down for both days of the May show. Not ever known it to be at both. But as the theme is fighter aircraft it'd be crazy not to have it. Be interesting to see what other modern stuff they can get. Belgian F16?

Edit - just seen on the schedule it's down for the Southport show both days.... :question:

Belgian F-16 highly unlikely as that's the weekend of Sanicole International Airshow!

Car Parking Fee for the American Airshow, No fee for Flying Legends, but a Car Parking fee for September show...........?
Is this because the American Airshow & the September shows are IWM affairs and Flying Legends is TFC's show ?

From the FAQs
Are you charging for car parking?

Parking is included in the cost of your admission ticket but you will still need to obtain a car parking ticket at the time of booking. There is a limit on car parking places available for the Flying Legends Air Show, so everybody wishing to travel by car must book a car parking ticket in advance. We encourage you to book your car parking tickets early, as they are limited and subject to availability. Anyone who does not have a car parking ticket will not be able to park at the Air Show – though there are a wide number of alternative convenient public transport options.

FOD News mentions, apart from the usual Duxford residents, a MiG-15 along with Yak-3 for the show.

... everything mentioned in FOD News was also mentioned during commentary at Legends I believe, so nothing new other than seeing it in print. Looking forward to the first proper list to be published. I'll be going both days anyway, but Mrs B is waiting to weigh up Sat vs. Sun before we buy tickets.

Huge thumbs up for the Yak-3. I'll never forget the display it did with the Storch at the May air show last year. Will be nice to see the MIG but do hope those two aren't it for any extras other than the usuals...

I see that Duxford is offering 15% off the price of tickets for this show for the whole of August. Does this mean that ticket sales are less than they hoped, or is this something they always do?

I imagine most people would at least like a preliminary list of participants before purchasing. Not an unreasonable ask, surely?

With just over a month to go, there must be more booked to appear than has been hinted at through unofficial sources already.
