Sorry won't be able to make it, Wednesdays are my days at Coningsby. Plus the 24th (Wednesday) is PDA day (unless the weather is bad and they switch to Thursday).

Too busy on PDA day for the likes of me. I just hope for nice weather and a Typhoon going out on QRA :)

Well that goes against everything I've heard, thus far :D

Thanks for that though!

I reckon I might end up at Waddington, or, Brize on the 25th. Not decided yet, though

The winds at Coningsby have been above limits for the last week, so they haven't done nearly enough flying/displays as "normal".

From what I understand, and I could very well be wrong, so take what I say with a pinch of salt :D
Fri/Sat are just full day practices to make up for lost time, PDA is still from the 22-25th (22/23 practice days, PDA 24th with 25th as weather back up day if 24th is cancelled). I'm just piecing together what I read on the BBMFs twitter feed. So apologies if I'm wrong :)

hmmmm, I'll make a decision nearer the time, but, I appear to be leaning towards Brize
