We were due a flypast at 3.50pm at Crudgington School. We got a phone call 10 minutes before arrival to say Brake failure at Bristol. They advised atleast another hour and a half or may not come at all today 😩

They are probably the same two that were at Cambridge for the Duxford show. These two were :-

131/4-GJ is grey with a black/red SPA160 100th Anniversary scheme tail.
130/4-GI is the demo aircraft.

See pics at viewtopic.php?f=16&t=162632 for the two schemes.
Cheers, Bob

Looks like first out of Shawbury is MiG 29 between 1300 and 1400, then Rafales between 1500 and 1600. Typhoon is last so after 1630 local.

Long day folks with no much happening from Shawbury before 1300 local.

As always this is to be confirmed as no official aircraft moves given by Shawbury as yet.
