They normally bring a spare but four in total is unexpected.

All you need to do is go to http://www.airtattoo.com/airshow/visiting/airshow-tickets
Use the top link there to login. Then enable you to print off any additional free child tickets required.



Unfortunately it's not letting me print off any additional free child passes I need with my previous order, very frustrating..

Question is was the An26 the support transport for the F16.if so that will be next off the list.

I wouldn't get too ahead. On the list it does say four but with Greek Air Force's twitter it only had the display and spare aircraft in the photos. On Scramble it said "HAF340 is listed as a flight of four??" but that seems more like a question than a statement. So it is possible but I would wait for confirmation because the Greeks are probably one of the most unlikely countries to increase their participation just now - but it is not impossible!

Hungarian F-16s? Rarer than German Mig-29s me thinks... :tumbleweed:

It was support for the Gripen. Which had previously cancelled before, as stated above, the Hungarians do not have F-16s.

Great value for a school trip on the Friday, surprised they have not cottoned on to this - educational? more than many trips IMHO,

they will need to keep an eye on that in future,

It's a rehearsal/validation so surely it has to be identical on the show days?

When the Super Hornet Validated last year the display was awful it was very tame. On the show day on the Saturday the display was superb!
