The event begins at 11:00 but I`m afraid it`s a ticket entry event only for members.

I seem to recall that you can`t go along and join the LLA on the day to gain access either, as the event is limited to a certain number for insurance reasons (if my memory serves correctly).

Should be some nice opportunites from outside though as there will be a hangar pass by the Lanc` flanked by Spits and Hurri`s, as well as some other flying.

Regards

Well i cant believe it I thought the displays were over and then we get treated to a Vulcan display. Incredable to see it display over coningsby again for the first time since 1992. Did nobody know about this.

No, unfortunately not. We had just left coningsby and were travelling towards Martin when we saw it fly across in the direction of Waddington. Ah well at least i saw it!

It was down on the official LLA itinerary sheet but had cancelled next to it, first we knew it is inbound was when it called up at 50 miles out Clap Clap

Only got a quick look at one when the bloke in the car next door let us see his sheet. But from memory everything flew which was supposed to. We left about 4pm so not sure if anything else flew
