Jet Fest - North Weald 27-29 September 2019

Post by Blackbird »

I've not been able to find any real information about this event yet. I only became aware of it when I saw a board advertising it at RIAT. I know that Time Line are doing a nightshoot on the Friday but the price for that is steep.

Does anyone have any substantive information on the Saturday/Sunday? I enjoyed last year's event, and it's not really that long until the end of September!

There are no flying displays as such, as it is not a CAA-authorised event. However some of the participants may conduct 'normal operations' (takeoffs and landings, and possibly run-and-breaks and missed approaches) during the course of the weekend.

I am seriously considering attending this event on the Saturday, having greatly enjoyed last year's edition.

However, I am suffering from some confusion as the available info (I do not "do" Facebook, Twitter etc..[don't have the time for them on top of everything else that takes my attention]) seems somewhat confusing.

Is there an entrance fee for the Saturday and if so how does one pay it? The info I have been able to access seems to show several different prices and is unclear as to which prices refer to what activity.

Can anyone clear this up for me?

Many thanks in advance for any useful information.
nothing is confirmed at a show until its u/c hits the tarmac or it is running in for its display.....

Was at North Weald a few years back for a photo-call, and I recall seeing a MiG-17 in one of the hangars. Is it still resident?
...and it's a fair-haired slightly balding Bobby Charlton to kick off!
