Autogyro confirmed for Portrush.

I think I may sit Portrush out this year. Nothing grabbing my attention so far.

With no Reds, Typhoon or BBMF Lancaster, Spitfire & Hurricane there's bound to be a bit left in the pot for something bigger/more exciting than what's listed so far.

I am considering a weekend trip to Heathrow to watch the aircraft there on Portrush weekend.

That's got me a little bit more upbeat. Hopefully some more warbirds get added. Sally B and a Sea Fury would go down nicely.

It would be amazing if Portrush (or Newcastle) was able to get these guys. Ultimate Fighters, a 4 ship display consisting of a P51,P47, Spitfire and ME109

Huey and Loach added Airwaves Portrush event on their FB page, so looks like they will return.

It would be good if these guys could be booked...https://www.historichelicopters.com/Pages/1/Home.htm

They have RN Westland Wessex HU5 XT761 G-WSEX and Westland Whirlwind HAR.10 XJ729 G-BVGE both in airworthy condition.

They also have G-SKNG Westland Sea King HAR3, ex XZ597 which seems to be going through CAA approval.

The  Whirlwind is a good display, saw her last year at Cosford. She was down for Duxford however winter maintenance wasn't complete so was unable to get PDA. 

The Wessex and Sea King would be fantastic to see over here.

Would be a nice change to see these instead of Huey & Loach every single year!  :)

Another show that just has nothing on the bill that I'd cross the street to see. Various different reasons but sorry, nah.
