One thing I would suggest, if you venture away from the beer :lol: and drink the free water. Take some juice too take the edge of the water. It doesn't taste the best, my mate usually remembers to take one of those Robinson fruit shoots. Much better
in 18 it didn't matter what it tasted like as it was boiling coming out of the bowsers haha

Thanks for the tip. We'll bring something to take the edge off the taste and try to hold off the beers until 4.

Any bowsers we found had run dry by lunch time. First aid tent helped out by refilling our bottles. :thumbs:

I do, it was stupidly hot on the Saturday and most of the places that sold cold drinks had sold out by mid afternoon. We headed to Lyneham to catch a visiting C-130 but stopped at a pub by a river on the way, drank gallons of cold lager and didn't go any further that day - I think we all slept in the car that night! :lol:

That would be 64-17967, but could also be 61-7967 (as it was ordered in 1961) ! :S

From their e-mail just sent out:

Two themes for 2020; Fast Jet Combat Air Power and Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (ISR).

We are hopeful the UK F-35B Lightning and new RAF P-8A Poseidon will appear at this summer's Air Tattoo
