Not sure why you think it would happen at Waddington. All three aircraft are booked to appear at Clacton (Thursday only), Dunsfold (both days) and Shoreham (Saturday only). If they are going to do it, I guess it will be at one (or more) of those.

One Olympus 301 has twice the power of a complete F1 starting grid.
XM655 has four of them, all serviceable.

Someone on facebook (See edit) said there's going to be an event on the 21st which should have been at Coningsby but was cancelled due to poor infrastructure so was moved to Waddington. Apparently it'll be a pay event with all 3 landing at Waddington but it will be like the air show weekend with no parking and road cones everywhere. I know nothing though :)) and I can't even find where I read that so I can't even provide a link.

It COULD BE just rumour and speculation at the moment BUT On the 21st they are doing flypast's at Marham and Wattisham on the way to Clacton, so they are out and about.

::EDIT:: Found it.

It's straight from John who runs the WAVE.

But I don't know how to link to it. So if that works you'll have to scroll down to find the question then read the replies to it.
