Highlights thus far are the Cocardes Marine and the Wessex, but a bit more still to come I’m sure!


Yes just the F-16 and Typhoon (and a fast pass by the the F-35)

The Lithuanian L-39C as well. Just be patient, good things come to those who wait...

I’m excited for the Lithuanians! I don’t think an L-39 would be classed as a fast jet though.

But you’re right, it’s gonna be a good show!

There is currently a question mark over the L-39’s attendance though. Hopefully we’ll have more information soon.

So I’ve been informed, yes. I’m not entirely sure on the reason though.

To be fair, as far as I know they only have 3 of them. There are a hundred reasons between now and Air Day why the Lithuanians could drop out with a fleet that size. But the intention is still there to come, so there’s lots of time for things to change.

Well I’ll be damned, never thought I would see a flying harrier at Yeovilton ever again, wonder if they could talk them into being part of the commando assault.

By my count that’s:
33 fixed wing flying
24 fixed wing static
14 rotary wing flying
4 rotary wing static

Not bad at this stage. More to come for sure.

Black Cats now confirmed, although as it's a solo Wildcat, that should probably be Black Cat.

Without a doubt, makes far more sense for them to stay at Yeovilton for a few days then head over to Fairford than to go home only to redeploy a few days later.
