Thanks mate, I heard him on the scanner saying he was going to just recce the airfield and return to Brize but if he's displayed then that saves me a trip tomorrow 👍👍

I take it that whisper is for today rather than Sunday's timing?

If so saves me a trip out tomorrow.

Really hoping they rehearse tomorrow. Obviously going to see it on Sunday, do not get me wrong, but that’s facing the sun.

Rafales (plural?!) and a Transall in support have apparently arrived at Shawbury.
Which museum lent them the Transall?

Support is a Casa 235.

Although the show's official Facebook/Twitter accounts did state it was a transall, before being corrected

According to a Facebook group (not always the most reliable of sources) a Hawker Hunter has turned up at Cosford today, can only assume if correct its one of the HHA ones arriving for the static display but seems a bit unlikely. I'm wondering if someone has simply made a mistake and it was something else, or one of the HHA ones was up on a routine flight and just happened to be near Cosford at the time.

Hi All

Just wondering if any of you wise old owls would have the best frequencies to listen to ATC whilst at the show on Sunday?

Many thanks in advance.
