Tickets shouldn't be an issue unless it's restricted because I think it's being held on apron C the big north apron

All tickets, +fee and VAT. Another ticketing rip off.

I'm failing to see where the rip off is? :S

Just over £17 including parking to see the aircraft on the Saturday... unless my maths are wrong.

I call it a rip off because they are advertising tickets at a price, then loading additional "costs" on. If a ticket for the Saturday is £11.25 then it's £11.25, not £10 and £1.25 additional costs. Why don't they just say £11.25? I'm sure all those folk who can claim back the VAT, as a business expense, are probably already familiar with the process for claiming it back. And since VAT is charged at 20%, that would make a ticket plus VAT, £12, and any "additional fees" would make it even more.

Presumably because it is run via a ticketing agency and it is they who charge the fees. No different to any other ticket-only event. Only £10 goes to the causes shown. The breakdown tells purchasers exactly what goes where.

Ah what a shame, just found out I’ve got a prior family engagement that very day, but would have loved to have made it over. Sounds like an amazing event.
