Flying display doesn't really impress to be fair with a lack of fast jets. Still going to give it a go though. Lancaster cancelled today

I'm guessing the flying display participants are as we see them now, too late for any more to be added I'd assume.

Morning All,

Just been caught out by the advance ticket only for Friday, sales no longer available and cannot pay on the day, tried ringing the promoter, told I was too late, nothing to do to help :-(

My question is, how much do they close the local area on the Friday, is there still anywhere you can photograph from ??

Thanks for any information.

You have somewhere between Bob Hope & No Hope of getting anywhere close to Yeovilton without an Entrance Ticket!
If you've read the Traffic Order, you'll have discovered it's easier to get closer to Area 51 than Yeovilton this coming w/e!
For what's on offer & given the current weather cycle, better to save your time & money for another day ? :halo:

I was in the within the County but a few miles East of Yeovilton, saw the Sea Vixen on her run in whilst I was driving, then saw the BBMF come by me as well as the B17. Could hear the Typhoon display nice and clearly!
