Weather permitting I've decided to take the long trek there and back on the Saturday. Sadly no Tucano that day.

I've never seen the Yak 3 or Bronco display, and I do want to see the P47 again along with Dakota.

Here's hoping they have a few more unknown announcements (the rest of the Ultimate fighters? :D )

TBH I'd say that's probably the best enthusiasts line up anywhere on the Island this year. Which is a bit bloody sad.

So far it looks as if they have enough for about a 2hour display at most, a bit pathetic. Maybe this will the last airshow at Portrush.

Aerosuperbatic Wingwalkers, IAC CASA, ICG S92, Team Raven, Wild Geese parachute team and Ulster gliding club make up the rest of the lineup.

I hope it isn't the last one for Portrush.  Maybe this year the Open has gotten all the attention/most of the budget?  Probably brought in more money than 10 airshows would?
