Anyone know how late the online booking closes? I'm driving out on the Friday, but would rather visit the Dutch heritage open days sites that weekend if the weather is poor for flying.

The organisers responded very quickly

"Tickets can be bought till the day prior the event. (The presale will end 1 week prior and don’t forget a parking ticket)

Our system at the entry of the event should be able to scan the barcodes from smartphones."

Oostappen Vakantie Park have got a couple of camping grounds near by from €16 a night.

We stay at the Parelstrand site in one of the mobile homes, cheap, cheerful and warm with good facilities.

Unsurprisingly though obviously unfortunate, the Polish Mig-29 was officially cancelled yesterday for the reasons you all know. The website will be amended later today.

Apologies, the website will be amended shortly: the NATO E-3 will be static.

Keep an eye out the next few days, you'll see quite a few new aircraft appearing :cool:

Don't miss the 'new' Belgian Spitfire and Fouga in the flying display! :heyhey:
Lots more to come!

PS: Was a typo, it's a German Navy Do-228, not a Do-28.

Another first at a Belgian airshow and a rare enough participant anywhere, I think: Portuguese Merlin on static :)

Also added a three-ship from the Royal Netherlands Historic Flight: Beech 18 & 2 Harvards.
