Unfortunately there will be plenty of them on the ground but it's what's in the air I'll be looking at.

 

It would appear that most of the planes will be flying in and out of Newcastle airport this year (in previous years it had been Durham Tees Valley). By the way, I live in Newcastle which is how I saw the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight on their way back to Newcastle airport.

Think the Red Arrows just went over my house, like. Heard them, but only saw the smoke/chem trail. Pure buzzing.

Heard them too.

 

Saw plenty planes from my own back garden last year, will do the same this year.

Definitely going. I'm a bit disappointed that there'll be no Harrier though. That was always a highlight when I used to go more. I'm really looking forward to seeing the Euro fighter again.

Love the airshow, usually ride my bike across every year and take a picnic, it's class when the weather's good. Going to London today though.

 

 

that will take ages on your bike.
