I am sure I heard a rumour that they may be bringing Vera over for the anniversary, anyone else heard this?

Hi all,
Bought my tickets for me and the missus earlier than normal. Three days in the show and P&V days also. Can't wait to get back to Kempsford :D

If you want to secure your Super Earlybird Air Tattoo tickets for Saturday 14 July 2018 you'll need to act soon as just 1,000 tickets are now remaining!

Is there any reasoning why the Early Bird tickets are now allocated by number and not timescale now, previously I have waited till after Christmas to purchase without any problems.

They have "simplified" things.


"We have also simplified our Super Earlybird (£45) and Earlybird (£50) discount which no longer end on a specific date but will change after a set number of tickets are sold. This means that we will, during the year, be selling tickets in different price bands at the same time which we believe offers a better choice of discounted tickets for anyone looking to attend this amazing 'one off' Air Tattoo."

The Canadian CF-188 have self confirmed via a live stream from the US for both Yeolvilton and RIAT

The US Demo teams starting to release schedules. Early indications no US demos

No US Demos have explicitly said "yes" but some notable ones have gaps in schedule coinciding with RIAT.

Wouldn't it be great if their support was a CC-115 before they're retired in favour of C.295s :thumb:

Just to show how everyone is different, most definitely not. I've seen all the CC-115s. I'd prefer a gap-filling CC-130J please....

Mildly off topic but why do the Canadian aircraft often have an extra number on the end as well as the C at the start (Which I'm fairly confident would be for Canada...)?
