There is no show at the airport so are there toilets or burger vans?
Who pockets this cash for??
Morning , For £5 at the mound you get to park your car , You also get the comings and goings of all aircraft with some doing a low pass on return (If they are landing from the land) , If they are landing from the sea then you won't get anything at the mound as all aircraft would land then turn off the runway way before the mound.
Is there toilets and food vans yes and no.On the Friday last year there was nothing , However on the Saturday there was an ice cream van and also a burger van , hot dog van.You had 3 portable toilets that are placed at the back end of the car park.
It was very busy last year I reckon there was at least 800 - 1,000 people on the mound on the Saturday.
With the new CAA regulations in force then the flying display is going to be even further away at Ayr Beach this year and with what looks like most of the stuff flying on the Friday night then the Saturday could be a long day.
American warbirds are all down for the Friday night but as of yet there is no sign of then flying on the Saturday.
That being said there is suppose to be extra aircraft announced in the next few weeks , I think this depends on early ticket sales though.
