It should kick off from 9:00 tomorrow, followed 13:30 and 15:30, so fingers crossed for good weather.

I hope to be there tomorrow. :thumb:

Can anyone tell me how good the viewing is? Is it similar to donna nook when using the nearest target? (ie: left to right along the beach).

Also, how is the parking there? Are you near the action and are there any places to avoid? (farmer's fields etc.)

Captain Scarlet is indestructable, you are not! Remember this, do not try to imitate him.

Parking i guess will be a problem the single track road to the range is ]Single track and does not leave room for parking along.
The carpark will hold about 20 cars at a push.
viewing is very good but most of the times thou you will not get full frame pics with a 800mm lens,
if they run in from right to left.

thou i have been to the range and on a few ocations and they come in from the Right of the Tower over the car park and do there drops .
this when they do this is a stunning place when they do it. even had F15s doing the runs this way .
Wainfleets is the best for viewing when they do this run in.

I am trying to get there my self if anyone wants to pick me up and get some free perol.i live just off the M69 M6jct Coventry end .
That guide on Lowfly net is very good if i say so myself. some nice pics :lol: :lol: .

Weather as you say will be the biggest problem on this coastline this time of year, sea fog hangs around all day .
