Indeed, #4 seen cycling the undercarriage, prior to return Shawbury. Rest of the team continued display, so hopefully only a precautionary abort for #4....

Anyway, Swiss display was superb!
And as the smart ship grew,
In stature, grace and hue,
In shadowy silent distance grew the iceberg too....

That's good think most things now where they need to be for show sounds like no last minute additions unless flying into slot

Don't think there's anymore flying display additions but they've been teasing a surprise addition which people have been speculating as a B1 flypast

The warbird was a Yak, the Stearman was the lovely US Navy marked one.

It is on the base. I don't think he's ever been correct about anything.

Apparently so. Replaced by Wasp.

Though Cosford social media has gone very quiet after promises of more announcements

The NH90 had the engine covers off and a van there most of the day. So fingers crossed they have fixed it
