Not as close as you but 15 minutes journey last year, so not quite so easy for the 6 a.m. balloon lift this time. It does look relatively close to a lot of built-up areas, not ideal for the balloonists in particular I would have thought, but I guess they were consulted, and they do seem to fly in and around Bristol a lot so hopefully all good.

£25 for early bird prices is quite a price considering what will be on display. Cosford looks much better value for the Midlands punters.

Looked this one up as I'm not far away... Going to try the Friday evening for all the novelty that goes with luminous parachutists and fireworks. For my daughter's benefit, of course. :up: :smile:

Believe that's a JP Mk. 3, not a Strikemaster.

Thank you, I did think the Strikemaster variant numbers were a bit higher than that.
