Danish F-16 added, I presume this is a confirmation of the flying example reported way back in March.

On the participants page it also states " UPDATES 2x / week !!!" so finally starting to fill that participants page :yahoo:

Actually it is 3 / week (2 flying updates and static update on Wednesday) :smile:

There will be an increase in frequency or some surprises left for the visitors to the show.

Another chance to see the Ukranian Flankers! :rock: Is it greedy to wish for them to send a Fencer or Frogfoot too? :biggrin:

True, I wouldn't be though, especially if they arrived on the Friday! Hell, they could arrived at 7pm in a rain storm and I'd still be happy :grin:

Hi all, maybe one for Chrisse but can you use the spotting corner for arrivals on the Thursday/Monday and is the Thursday worth doing for the day.

cheers all

Spotters corner is not really my area, but if you ask on FB for instance to KB spotters or Low Approach Aviation Photography, you may get a more 'accurate' answer than the official line. They all have their connections on base in places where it counts and may be able to set your expectations right :)
