If it's a lack of aircraft that have not turned up then I'd say there are no problems :up:

Forgive the self-plug of the crap photo and on IG as my Flickr is at capacity atm, but this formation was really top. I’m assuming it’ll be repeated at the show:

Drove straight in to the Neachley Lane field. No problems as usual. Get in early and it’s never an issue.

Wonder what the WWII surprise is, I'll guess at the Ultimate Fighters team.

It's WW2 Scenario, presumably involving the Hurricane.

Ultimate Fighters debut is Flying Legends.

Shortened appearance (two flypasts) by the Lanc, due to the lack of PDA.

Argus cancelled.

Seems like the Saab Gripen is displaying at the end to close the show.

That’s what the flying schedule posted this morning would seem to indicate.

Just home. What a cracker that turned out to be. The skyscape was epic at times. Some sweet display flying too.

My expectations were low today, with rubbish weather being the primary reason. Goes to show you never know! :lol:

Agreed. My first Cosford so I wasn’t sure what to expect other than crap light, and I was a bit disappointed to see that for the some of the displays the light was dire, but towards the end it couldn’t have been much better.

Gripen and Hornet were awesome as per, and really cool to see the German Orion. Bought a nice patch from the crew too. :up:

Not quite as good as last year but still a great show.A little prop heavy for my liking but really enjoyed the top class flying.Hopefully a few more frontline fast jets will come over in 2020. :clap:

Thought the show was fantastic - well done to the organisers.

The last few years they have banned little shelter tents on the front line, having 2 kids was glad to see them allowed this year. Seemed to be a more common sense approach of small shelter type tents were fine, those pitching a 10 man tent were told to take it down.
