RAF Leuchars Battle of Britain at Home Day 2013

Post by balamorybuzzed » Thu Feb 21, 2013 10:21 am

At long last it has been officially announced on the website and Leuchars Facebook page that this years show goes ahead on Saturday 7th September! Let's hope it's a spectacular event and perhaps Leuchars can bring back their own Role Demo like the old days in place of the XV Squadron demo!

Dutch F-16 isn't down for anywhere that weekend yet!?! Granted though, the Belgian and Danish teams are listed for the Czech Air Fest that weekend. Am I missing something! :huh:
