I'd suggest keeping an eye on www.farnboroughairshow.com - there is also a sign-up option for news updates.

Thanks, have done so already, but it's always nice to be able to explore other sources.

Latest Participation from Flighline website lists a lot of aircraft but most are still to be officially confirmed.
Probably worth checking out their site, don't want to list them as they are not more than roumers at the moment. :thumb:

Most of the new stuff leaves wednesday/thursday to make way for the public airshow items. If you want to see the exhibiting stuff then you really need to go on the first 3 days
