Sorry for my ignorance so far, but can anyone point to the tentative flying line up for the event?

Thanks in advance.

This information has not been published yet. As soon as there are sufficient confirmed aircraft to warrant publication the flying list is normally added to the IWM Duxford website for the relevant airshow. I have no idea when this will be put online though.

Thanks (anyway!) - seems a bit "hypocritical" of the IWM to have been actively promo'ing the Air Festival for weeks ( I get 2-3 emails a week encouraging me to buy advance tickets) without giving any indication of what will be flying! :roll:

I don't think it's any form of IWM Duxford conspiracy..... a not insignificant number of airshows do this, get the early bird ticket cheaper, but perhaps not with a confirmed participants list. As I'm sure you know, a lot of participants, especially military, are still in their season planning phase and cannot confirm participation.

Remember the days before the internet when you turned up at an airshow not knowing what was going to be there and the first thing you did was buy a program to see what was flying.

Now where's my zimmer frame.

As were the Farnborough airshows in the late 1960's/early 1970's - IIRC that included 111 Squadron Lightnings doing a VERY low level formation Diamond 9 "flat 360" turn at "not a lot of height" on burners (NOISY!), and the Vulcan Olympus test-bed doing a steep climb-out on the Olympus alone (XM558 - sorry, but it was "better"!)

Afternoon.

I booked a couple of Adult tickets for tomorrow for myself and my wife - but she's now decided she won't be coming! So her ticket has become available - does anyone want it for about £20 (if so, please PM me ASAP)?

Hi,
Anyone know where I can get a log of all the aircraft at the show on the Sunday? Including the GA, visitors and display items.
