4 flying Spitfire announced on official Twitter, but still only 2 listed on the website (G-BRSF and G-MXVI).

The Tweet says "including one from @norwegianspit [Norwegian Spitfire Foundation]", but they don't fly a Spitfire yet, do they ?

An agreement has been signed with Melun mayor and Villaroche area comity for 5 years. So chances for future events are high !
I have no doubt this event will become a classic. Such a huge gathering of French and foreign aircraft, ranging from WWII to modern, is unique in France and can attract people from all over Europe, thanks to its quite central location.

It's time to have a look on the weather forecast.
  • Showers announced for Saturday (50% chance of rain).
  • Sunny on Sunday (20% chance of rain).
But the forecast is getting better every day for this week-end (if you see what I mean) and confidence level is still only 3/5 => fingers crossed !
And some clouds will prevent front-facing lightning on early afternoon :heyhey: .
