I didn't know about this one, will definitely be there. Went to the last one in 2005 and got deafened by the F16s :). Couldn't hear much in one ear the following day.

Whereabouts on the airfield does the Vampire live mate? I was down by the Norwegian one on Friday afternoon, but didn't see WZ507?

Thanks for the F-16 arrival updates btw! :smile:

Nice one for getting the nose leg sorted and giving us the chance of seeing what we did.
