Will be interesting to see if the lack of Red Arrows has an impact on the attendance.

Shame the Army Aren’t sending the Apache as well as the Scout and Sioux. Shame about the Reds due to the U.S. Tour like you say be interesting to see what effect it will have attendance wise, mind you same could be said for all Airshows after Fairford. Never mind as long as I get to see the Typhoon I’ll be happy. If I go that is.

Disappointing that they hadn’t been able to make East Fortune the last Red Arrows Display before the American/ Canadian Tour or even a Flypast’

Not a bad line-up. Looking forward to it.

We might even get decent weather.

Looking great shame there's no mention of The Red Arrows as of yet. I hope we get sunshine all day.

Just waiting to get a likely Weather Forecast for East Fortune before I decide wether to go also wondering what the times for Typhoon and BBMF are? Yes I know they are unlikely to give the times out before the show.

Really hope the weather is good this year, high winds & heavy rain pretty much kept the BBMF away in 2017 & 2018. Think it was last year that they didn't even get the hangar doors open at Coningsby due to the wind?

Read in the Sunderland thread that the T-33 has cancelled due to no pilot availability, and can't see it listed on East Fortune's page.

That, and the Met Office website forecasting rain. :mad: :mad:

Let’s hope the forecast is wrong, East Fortune has not had the best of luck with the Weather in recent Years, total utter shame, really feel for them.

It looks as though there's a possibility that the band of rain will move westwards during the day so we might have a situation like last year with rain to start and clearer skies later. Fingers crossed anyway.

Wasn’t the best Airshow today with lots of aircraft cancelling due to the poor weather but still had a fun day. Hope next year will be better weather wise.

Other than the Wildcat, all aircraft that displayed at East Fortune today operated from Edinburgh. Weather (again :mad: ) preventing anything coming North from Newcastle. In a repeat of 2017, Typhoon could be heard overhead but not seen due to the low cloud which pretty much covered most of the area. Believe Sunderland Airshow suffered a similar fate. :sad:
