High winds are expected in Lincolnshire which will likely effect BBMF participation.

If they can, the BBMF will effect BBMF participation, but high winds will probably affect it.

It would help if you mentioned what was taking part so that we can all have an opinion.

Not a terrible flypast by any means.

Have a crack at this one! :smile:

Sadly the weather is not playing nicely tomorrow and we can’t come out. All event organisers have been informed. Sunday is expected to be better.

Weather is pretty overcast and gusty here in South Essex, have to keep an eye out and see whether it goes ahead (minus the BBMF).

Military doesn't show up o FR24 does it?

You need ADSB Exchange, which currently shows the Hawk SW of Colchester, and Typhoon, BAe 146 and Voyager off the coast near Southwold.

Would have been nice for a F-35 to be added.

They're deployed overseas. I don't think any have flown at Marham since the six that are on exercise left, so they've probably taken all the pilots.

Sounds familiar, particularly with the different variants of F35: "We don't need a big wing, or a small wing. We need pilots....."
