Hopefully they will bring the gorgeous 84sqn camo one down rather than their yellow rescue example as we are already getting one like that. :biggrin:

Yep. Bit frustrating it's just the (usual) one day format this year - hope there's time to see everything!

When asked why they couldn't do a two day show, the response was 'We would have liked that, but we can't.' :dunno:

They really need to put on a photography day prior to the event ,simply for the fact that all this effort hinges on 1 day!!

Confirmations today include a flying participant. 2 more Jet Provosts have appeared on the website for static.

Today we've added a huge assortment of historic aircraft to our participation list, for both the flying displays & RAF100 static exhibition, on Sunday 10th June.

Appearing at the show for the first time will be Hawker Hurricane P2902! This aircraft has recently been restored to flying condition and wears the markings of 245 Fighter Squadron, coded DX-R, and Black/White underside. This aircraft will perform in the flying display.

A number of other warbirds will be appearing as part of our unique line-up of 100 Royal Air Force aircraft types, including Hurricane P3717, Harvard FE511 & Tiger Moth T7109.

Would think the better day would be to leave the aircraft in situ, then when all the stalls and clutter as gone,
They have a week or following weekend photo calls.
It's not has if these statics need to be moved back in monday or trailers in asap to move them away.
Charge a resonable price and make more money off the back of all this effort.

Gets my vote. I hadn't thought of the 'after the show' angle at all.
its time to kick the tyres and light the fires

I don't know how accurate the information is, but I was told some of the airframes coming by road/or otherwise at Cosford already (Black Mike) are working on a return almost immediately after the show has finished. Therefore, it could be difficult organising a photoshoot beyond the weekend.

I do agree though some sort of small event would be great. Should have been two days! :grin:
