Hi,

The viewing area/BBMF is on Dogdyke Road (great name!). Continue further down the road (away from the BBMF, past the car park & towards the runway) to reach "the mound"

Should be a sunny day tomorrow with a light wind from the East,so head for the BBMF-end and you'll see the mound with a large car park with a burger-van near it.
The other end of the runway is on the B1192(near New York).

Hi.

Just a quick note to say it might be very quite tomorrow movement wise with 11 sqn not flying because they have just got back from Turkey and 29 sqn are night flying so the only squadron's you might see flying tomorrow is 41(R)sqn ( harriers ) and 3sqn like they have done to day and there also has been some visitors in to day so you might get some visitors in tomorrow hope that helps.

Regards.

Mark. Smile
