Hi, I'm not sure if I should post this here or in the "for sale or wanted section"? Please feel free to move it if appropriate?

The Valley Aviation Society is running a coach to KB for Saturday 8th September (departing 7th returning to UK Sunday 9th about lunchtime) If you are interested, please click on the link below.....

Thanks Fighter Control :thumbs:

At the risk of sounding slightly flippant, it depends on where you are in the UK & how long you want to go for & how much you want to spend.

In the past, we've done it as a 'day raid' - drive down to Folkestone from Lincolnshire in the evening of the day before the show, catch an early morning shuttle through the tunnel & drive up to KB to arrive just as the gates open. After a day at the show, we'd drive back to the Tunnel, then back up to Lincs to get home in the early hours of the next day. That's quite tiring and you need a couple of drivers for it, but it's the cheapest in terms of travel costs & days away.

I've also done Tigermeet at KB via the tunnel or ferry, camped for a couple of nights & then gone back by the same route. Again, a lot of driving, but it works out the cheapest in terms of travel costs.

Last year for KB/Sanicole I decided to do multiple days at the show so booked a chalet nearby & also decided I was going to use the ferry from Hull to Rotterdam. Far less driving mileage, and you get a good night's sleep each way too. It does work out a lot more expensive (IIRC £300ish for the ferry for car plus 4 pax, vs about £140 for the tunnel) and it adds extra duration to the trip, but the sleep & arriving at the show relaxed & rested is well worth it.

In terms of flights, Brussels is about 75 minutes away provided you miss the traffic, Schiphol is about 2.25hrs away, and Weeze (former RAF Laarbruch, think EasyJet fly there) is about 90 mins away.

Hope this is useful.
