Yes "a free to attend event"

No vulcan however, would recommend a sea event as farnborough seems pale compared to 2014 due to the new rules. suspect over sea they don't come into place

Correct - as this is over the sea they have just expanded the exclusion zone for boats etc and it will still be a great show - assuming unlike when I went last year the weather doesnt cancel it

Ah this would have been perfect for taking photographs. If only I was available and/or it was closer to Brum!

Attended this last year and it was a great day out.

It used to be a great show, and as a native, I should support it more, however, I went to the Eastbourne Air Show last weekend and Bournemouth could learn a great deal from it. It also had a lot of what Bournemouth isn't having this year.....

.....aircraft!!!!

I'm still going every day though!!!!

Should be good although the mini heatwave is likely to end by the weekend and thunderstorms forecast on my weather app.

I cannot agree more! The Typhoon is worth going for without any of the others! Reds always fantastic! I think that the organisers need to realise that making promises of F-18s and F16s, then not fulfilling, is leaving the fans a bit disillusioned!

Also, the Typhoon is displaying on Friday at 17.01 and also at 20.15 which is unusual,but should be great!
