We always get bad weather on airshow day forecast lol.

Anyway, STEM Village is going up in Donard Park and the RAF 100 Aircraft tour will also be there. It will be on the grass playing fields leaving the car park open.

Are they genuine aircraft, or fibreglass versions?

Weather forecast for Saturday is looking much improved for Newcastle area,still grim for BFS,with wind favouring 07 for the Reds or even runway 17.:-(

Ideally we want them using 25 so they land over Killead Road?  Is there a better spot at Drennan's Road?

chances are probably very slim, but you could make Aldergrove for 16.10 for their recovery and then departure at18.11.

Chipmunk pair are a 'reserve' item now in case of a cancellation.

Sad, I would have liked to have seen them. The solo display at Cosford was good, and it would have been their very first pairs display.

Gyrocopter will be doing 2 displays it seems tomorrow. He will be coming back, which is why he is listed twice on the programme. Camera run maybe?
