Jonathan - XT761 will be outside for better photographs.

Frogfoot - The event is open from 0930 until 2300 (Six Nations Rugby, Café, Bar and Live Band 2000-2230). Visiting Helicopters (including the HAAF Scout) are due to arrive between 1000 and 1130 (all departing during the afternoon).

Unfortunately Mike Cuttell's Alouette II is still undergoing maintenance and will not be joining us.

We will be joined by Red Lodge Helicopters with their fantastic, large-scale, remote control Helicopters (static and flying).

See you all on Saturday!
