Hi there it has been a while since I last went (missed the last few runs) but for what it's worth,
The best side to get into the site is the gilmorton side (from Lutterworth) toilets are not too bad but can end up with the usual ques. There are lots of stalls and the aircraft usually run if it's a bit showery however if it's blowing a gale they have to slow down a bit (think airborne victor) ;)
Definitely worth the visit much better than the usual six miles away from the aircraft air shows you get nowadays :ymapplause: :ymapplause:
