Planes TV have reported Patrouille de France is coming over for the Duxford air festival 2019. Not seen it anywhere else though. I wonder if its possible they saw the website with 'last years highlights' showing a pic of them and mistook it for a 2019 booking.

Edit: My mistake, doesn't seem to be an official PlanesTV account.

You might be right, I didn't see that until you said. Sorry. I thought it was Planes TV themselves.

Hoping tickets go on sale soon.... trying not to spend the money I've allocated for tickets over the last month has been hard lol.

Belgian F16 schedule tomorrow, fingers crossed. I remember in 2007 when it done a flypast with a Mustang and Airacobra. Will never forget it for some reason. Was beautiful.

You might get a debut from a new type (D.H.9 perhaps?), otherwise it will likely be the same Duxford based acts. Remember they have had the Rafale for the last two years though, so there's always a chance of something decent.

One thing I never thought to ask when booking tickets.

Does the free shuttle bus from Cambridge train station and back run for the Air Festival? Only ever known about it for Legends.

Haven't used it for a few years, but the bus service used to use it for all the shows so assuming that is still the case.

Great to hear that. I've seen them twice and enjoyed both displays.

Great sound from the Stearman :)

Hi,

Will the Breitling team need to do a practice display beforehand to obtain a PDA? I can't make the weekend although might be able to get there one day the week before. Saw a lovely practice display from the PDF last year where we were allowed to watch from the tank bank.

Cheers,

PT
