Provisional display for tomorrow 1:30 to 15:40

Mass Parachute Drop
BBMF Dakota
Aces High Dakota
3 invasion striped Dakotas
Auster pair
ML407 and MH434
Mustang and Thunderbolt
Second Parachute drop

Might might be the right order and may have forgot something but that's what was announced not too long ago.

Thank you very much for that. It is a very different schedule again to what is on the DoN and IWM websites but pretty decent.

I hope we do see all of them in one big formation, I really hope its not just a case of them flying past one by one.

Does anyone know how they are doing parking tomorrow, is it normal airshow routine, and we can enter by the gate down the LWH end?

I think the mass drop will be 'only' 11 aircraft.

Presumably in echelons of 3 aircraft.

The rehearsal for the mass departure a little while ago was them in a long stream, but was only 11 of them so I suspect it will either be the same and one at a time or in groups of 2/3.

Yes I was told that one will be open, as will the North side and museum car park.

I'm wondering if I made a mistake in going on the Wednesday instead of tomorrow. I would have liked a bit more clarity on the programme in advance but I'm sure the sight of all those Dakota's will be worth the trip.

Same here. There are multiple programs floating about and no clear indication of what is actually happening on Wednesday (other than they will all depart at some point weather depending).

The DoN website hasn’t been updated for months. I’d be more inclined to believe the one posted on the IWM website, or the one posted earlier today above.

You might like to call F-AZOX "Chalair".

Good job the Americans turned up in force or could have been a real damp squib. Looking forward to tomorrow.
