Having checked the list again and taking into account the NZ Air Force B757 (seen them all ), but the fact there is a Tornado GR4 flying I am severely tempted.
Plus of course the French Rafael blah blah.

I am liking the look of it.

Cheers

Just been online to purchase 2x adult and 3x children tickets to Cosford but unfortunately just sold out it seems.

If anyone has tickets but cant go I would pay face value for them as soon as possible (the childrens ones are under 16, free, but still had to be booked for numbers reasons).

Thanks all and here's hoping..

Marcus.

They sold out online yesterday (lots of press was put out in the run up by the show!)

You can still get them from local outlets: https://twitter.com/cosfordairshow/stat ... 5534681089

There is no access to the airfield. At best, you can stand on the railway station platform.

Otherwise, there is a sunrise photoshoot: https://www.threshold.aero/event/raf100-photocall

You'll have to tear yourself away from BHX for the day to do that lol. I've decided to give it a miss this year and do Yeovilton and RIAT, which has burnt my airshow budget so far this year. Hope you get to see the Tornado GR4 flying as that is a rarity these days.

Cheers

Not doing the show as traffic and trains all too much trouble. Was hoping for an arrivals day on site.
Then it's the Yeovilton. RIAT etc circuit

Website appears to have reset this evening, I'd imagine we will still be seeing the Hunter, Tiger 9 and the replacement Harvard.

Looks like Hawker hunter & One of the Harriers has disappeared from website, as has Tiger 9 display & H125.

Actually looks like the website has rolled back two weeks with the F16, Tucano's and Hawk etc are now listed as new and the Pakistani C130 & Noorduyn Harvard IIB is not listed as cancelled.

Edit: Beaten to it by MRTT, sorry.
