Booked Swordfish for first time last year. Obviously everyone has their own likes/dislikes but I thought my whole day was excellent. I have been to Yeovilton through the gates for years but certainly preferred the Swordfish experience and as soon as the tickets went on sale I booked again for this years show. Positioning is more towards the start of the runway but very happy with the photos I took.

Brilliant, thanks for the replies and examples of photographs guys. We are four rows back to the left side I think.

Doesn't seem to be many fast jets in the static, it that normal from past years at this time. I take it the Greeks, Canadians, Czechs and Aeronavale will obviously bring spare frames but none of them will be in the static?

Over the last few years, there have been a few static fast jets. Some display aircraft and spares are usually parked in front of the crown, with the rest parked on the south side. If the aircraft are going to be using flares, they are the ones that are parked on the south side of the runway, but by no means do all aircraft parked on the south side use flares.
Hope this helps.

Is there any likelihood of further additions for the show, or is this the final line up bar any more cancellations)
