I'd expect a few arrivals and, a number of practice displays.
That would make me very happy! I loved the Rafale at RIAT. I am secretly hoping that there will be some warbirds too, I have been itching to try this new lens of mine out!

Thank you for the reply.

Does anyone know if the road at the back of Duxford is closed today (friday)? Was going to see if i could watch the Rafale display from there. TIA.

Not a fast jet person was well impressed with the Rafale display.

Sally B coughed into life with a sedate practise flight. Now at the hold and about to take off again. :clap:

The departure from Cambridge was fairly outrageous - it went vertical to 3000' halfway down the runway

What end are they displaying. Is the centre line still pushed to the west away from the M11?

The Sea Vixen sadly had to belly land back at Yeovilton after displaying at Duxford due to hydraulic failure. Pilot ok.

Absolutely fantastic show today, some excellent displays- Rafale the pick of the bunch! Great shame to hear about the Sea Vixen, just glad the pilot is alright.
