They're certainly down to appear at an Old Warden show this year.

Which one however, remains to be seen.

If I remember correctly the pilots are selected from the Royal Jordanian Air Force but the actual aircraft are owned and maintained by Royal Jordanian Airlines

I'd hazard a guess and say the seventh is the HAC airframe.

HS CAPEL-LE-FERNE

That changes the prospect a little, it's doubtful a flypast of seven Hurricanes' will happen if two are from the BBMF.

I think there are currently 9 Hurricanes down to fly. 8 civilian/Shuttleworth and 1 from BBMF. If there are two from the BBMF that would make 10.

The website and Facebook have, G-ROBT, R4118, G-HRLI, Shuttleworth's Sea Hurricane and G-HITT down to fly with two more Hurricanes' stated in the visiting aircraft list and as the BBMF have posted their display schedule seems extremely likely it's those.

Doesn't mean all can't fly together, just makes the prospect a lot less likely given the amount of times the BBMF fly with civilian operators.

Is the Shuttleworth website reliable? I genuinely do not know. The listing on air-shows.org.uk includes others.

Well, as they are organising the show, I would imagine it is.

Haha, I am aware they are organising the show! That does not automatically equate to their website being spot on. Blimey. :pinkwafer:
