Work keeps me away today. Just watching the live stream over a cup of Coffee and look at all the tent villages on the crowdline!!! No I don't mean the corporates, I mean the greedy sods with 40 square meters of canvas, screening off their own personal space :grin:

Hope those there get some sun and fluffy clouds. :smile:

According to a tweet by the Apache team yesterday the B1 is due after the Red Arrows and Typhoon so my guess would be around 3pm

B1-B apparently at 2.40pm with the B52 at 3pm.

2-3.30pm looks a real quality 90 mins!

Thank goodness the people streaming on the live chat are not on UKAR. The anti-textspeak/grammar police would have a field day.And as for the obscene language ..................

Epitomises all that is wrong with social media (or should that be anti-social?)

Brilliant, brilliant pass from the B1 in what was probably the worst 5 mins of weather during the whole day so far!

Full afterburners. Love it and made it worthwhile for me coming down here today.

Well done Cosford for getting it to do a flypast today.

Really nice touch to get the B-52 in like that just before the last B-17 flypast, at least i hope it was planned, the guy in commentary didn't have a clue it was about to happen.

Did seem a bit sudden, the B-17 had barely cleared the area but at least it got some of the best weather of the day.
