Presently ensconced in caynton field. Cracking view of chinook coming in. Now awaiting RJF and the Swiss. What's the possibility of the tiffi practicing?
I'm not categorically saying that it wont but I've done every arrivals day from 2014 onwards and im 99% certain that its never done a practice display over Cosford prior to the show.

Very easy to lose sight of them due the white upper surface. Great display view from the field.

Do you reckon that could be it for for the day?

Swiss looked nice from over here, lovely banked turn into the field for the start of their practice. I'd guess half of south Staffordshire/Shropshire think they have just seen the Reds if they were looking into the sun. Nice tight formation.

The Herk looked lovely though, over my head a few mins ago, en route to Cosford.
And as the smart ship grew,
In stature, grace and hue,
In shadowy silent distance grew the iceberg too....

Wasp is the replacement for the Wildcat.

Irish EC135 repositioned to static.

Belgian NH90 apparently U/S? No practice display today means no display tomorrow I believe?

Lovely old-fashioned gentle aerobatics. Well-flown slow roll, still my favourite manoeuvre!
And as the smart ship grew,
In stature, grace and hue,
In shadowy silent distance grew the iceberg too....

Swiss back on the radio, clear display!
And as the smart ship grew,
In stature, grace and hue,
In shadowy silent distance grew the iceberg too....
