Sunderland confirmed it themselves. Norwegian example is returning to the circuit this year, and there's no others based in Europe.

For info, a T33 arrived in France last year and is operated by "Top Gun Voltige" :smile:

Draken added and the Wildcat will be landing on a warship which will come in close so we can see it.

Has a decent line up for a seaside airshow - might give this one a try this year

Where is the airshow datum for the displays?
Is the beach the best place to be to see the displays?
Is there PA along the beach too or do you have to bring your own radios to listen to the commentary?

Looks like the T-33 has cancelled due to pilot availability. The Draken has now received final display authorisation so looking good for it’s attendance. Any one know it’s arrival day/ time?

Weather forecast not looking great for Friday and Saturday which is a shame as it’s a decent lineup this year

MiG-15 heading north over York. Would guess this might be replacing the T-33.

Edit: Going to EDI for East Fortune airshow. Could still display at Sunderland I assume.
