I wonder if the Reds might make a surprise visit, seeing as they are working that day anyway.

The Reds don’t do unplanned “surprise visits”

A bit thin for almost £50 (with parking) TBH. I think I’ll be at Duxford’s D-Day Flying Day instead.

Hi all. Due to work commitments, unable to attend. I do have a ticket for non-event days so was thinking about popping down on Friday. Just wondering if there is likely to be much happening as regards Shuttleworth aircraft doing air checks or practice displays. I know nothing is for definate, but if any Old Warden regulars or SVAS members know, that would be appreciated. For all those going on Sunday, hope you have an enjoyable one. Regards Steve.
