Fair enough but MiG, Red Arrows, Sea Vixen, Gnats and Provost don't really fall into the fast jet category.

Wouldn't like to try and out run them

For a day out, even without the flying, it is first class:

Excellent museum
RAF Regiment and Bomb Disposal going through a hands on with their kit
Getting inside a Jaguar

Taxiing Jaguars
Red Arrows
BBMF
New scheme on Peter Teichman's P51
Mig 15
Vixen

£25 well spent!

No one has time to visit museum during air day surely

If the weather keeps up the way it is, it will be a miracle if the show goes ahead. The grassed areas will be too soft for vehicles to park on.or assemble all the ground activities.

Lot of rain has fallen over the central region this week with more to come.
thunderstorms and heavy rain into the weekend,
Cosford will have metal matting down to drive on to the field I understand, how it will cope off the trackway who knows.
Brollies being the order of the day for Sunday.

Met office showing overcast both weekend days with only a 10% chance of rain on either.
