I was contemplating doing Duxford but just looking at the participation list and at half the price (me + 2 x children @ £35 all in) makes it a bit of a 'no brainer!'

I presume that it pays to be an early bird?

I also note that everything wraps up at 1700hrs so I dare say leaving will be carnage too?

It does yes, Car Parks open at 8am with gates open at 9am.

Not at all, ive never had to much trouble, last year it was 20 mins inside the Field and then once your out the field its very easy to leave the area.

Going to be Great
V- JET FORMATION FOR AIR DAY'S VULCAN FAREWELL
The Avro Vulcan’s final appearance at RNAS Yeovilton Air Day on Saturday 11 July will include a special 'V-Jet Formation' flypast. The famed 'V-Bomber' will be joined by Naval Aviation Ltd's de Havilland Sea Vixen and the Norwegian Air Force Historical Flight's two de Havilland Vampires to present an exclusive four-ship classic British jets flight. While the Vulcan and Sea Vixen's joint flypasts were an outstanding highlight of Air Day 2011, the expanded formation will be a unique spectacle with the Sea Vixen leading the Vulcan with a Vampire on each wing. The thunderous, iconic Vulcan has participated in the majority of Air Days staged since its return to flight in late 2007. Its Air Day farewell will be a sad occasion for many, but this classic jets link-up will give the Vulcan a magnificent send-off.

Wow, can't wait. Was gutted when the Sea Vixen went tek at Bournemouth when she was booked for a pairing with the Vulcan, thought I would never see then together.
Fingers crossed :thumbs: :thumbs:
