No. Not the case.


How much? Its often been reported to be significantly more than display teams such as the reds etx?

You're right, don't hold your breath. That falls into commercially sensitive info.

And, were it to be known, potentially commercially embarrassing no doubt ;)

There's a reason why the appearance list is so very thin - and too expensive has got to be top of the list otherwise there'd be airshows falling over themselves to get 'The Vulcan Effect' .. something is stopping them :(

I'm sure VTTS have said in the past that each display costs £10,000 in fuel alone. I may be wrong. The chaps at 655 MAPS will have a rough idea as they know how much fuel is used on their fast taxi's.

the costs were quite well known a few years ago, i remember seeing a post or two about it with flyby cost and full display costs detailed however i would pretty much be sure that they have gone up significantly TBH the vucan Should cost alot to display as she brings in massive crowds myself included on many occasion Cosby for instance, i have only been to the WW2 show when the vulcan has flown :D
i know quite a few of us have a bit of a nasty taste left over from the VTTS but she is still flying and displaying so they do their job, and at no point have i EVER seen them not try to bend over backwards to show her off.

Whilst watching Estuary tv last night they asked how much a display costs(this was at Cleethorpes 2013).The cost was £12000 to get in the air then £6000 per hour there after.

The RIAT thing was never about how much she cost to attend. They never wanted her there this year!
