Can I ask, are you on a tour or DIY ? I'm DIY ing it myself with my Sister and so far we've bought 2 trade day tickets and are hoping to get around quite a few Aviation related museums during our stay.
I've had an email from Aviasalon confirming that my Press Application has been accepted and authorised which is a first but no idea what,if anything it allows me to do anymore than a normal day pass. Maybe a free coffee in the Press tent ? Anyone on here ever had Press Accreditation ?
DIY, meeting up with a couple of other worthies from the forum. No press accreditation for me, the plan at the moment is to spend a day on-base (probably Wednesday) then spend the next three days outside. Can't wait... getting properly excited now!
I wasn't too concerned about my Visa, I knew there wasn't going to be a problem and the whole process was relatively smooth once I had the 'tourist voucher' thingy confirmed. Plus there's a Russian Visa consular office in Edinburgh which is only a short distance from where I live, nice and handy.
