Anyone there today ? I’m about 10 miles from Cosford and the weather is atrocious and looks like it’s here for the day. . Anyone know if anything’s planned to practice this afternoon?

Weather and visbility at Shawbury is poor. Suspect any planned practice displays may not go ahead, but that's only a guess (Gripen has a slot allocated for this afternoon).

Yellow weather warnings for today and saturday in Birmingham.
Very poor weather today . Been hiising it down all day. Lets hope it blows over for Sunday. But it looks terrible at the moment.

The forecast on the BBC website for Sunday looks pretty-good now, that day surrounded by rather damp days before and after.

Indeed. Not looking good tomorrow, either. Hopefully the ground will be OK...

The forecasts for tomorrow seem a bit hit and miss for the afternoon. Watching the bbc forecast on bbc1 it looked like the showers finished about mid-day. Im not as hardy (mad ? ) as you guys , but would like to seem some fly in / practices as i cant make the Sunday . I can make the Monday as well , but wont see any practices tho.
I live about an hour away and have never been to an arrivals day. From what I read the railway station is the best place to head ? I will be driving , so is there parking around there. ?
When do you guys get an idea of what and when be planned to arrive tomorrow ?

Thanks for any tips.

Hi,
I go on the train so unfortunately can't help you with where to park. Although, I did go Saturday to watch the practices and arrivals last year. From what I remember things started to happen at around 13:15-30. I'm pretty sure there isn't a schedule available and you sort go and see what turns up. The F16 and Mig29 did practice displays and there were a few arrivals. There were quite a few people at the station last year and it does provide a great view.

Did anything arrive today ? That's if anyone went along and braved the awful weather.I suspect most rehearsals/validations will take place late tomorrow afternoon as the weather looks better from 1600 onwards.

Yes, fair amount in today.

Slovak L-410 hasn't arrived yet, no sign of a fuel stop anywhere either.
