    That's rubbish - I know it left Waddington, and then came back there to display. What happened to it in-between dude...?

    (By rubbish, I don't mean that I'm calling you a liar or anything, just that's it's bad it didn't show...)

    well there was very heavy cloud to one side of the site and i thought there was going to be a thunder storm .......

    and the Red arrows show was only 10 minutes long ... the "air display" was supposed to be sheduled for 30-45 mins so not really sure what happened.... but there was the red and nothing else..... i have to say i was dissapointed too Martin

    All air displays seem to be suffering this year - everyone's away doing proper stuff it seems...

    Think I'll still brave the air tattoo though, just in case...

    Fair one - the Vulcan is VFR cleared only so that could be why.

    Point 2 - why are the Reds trailing pink smoke now...? I know they're got a (ginger) woman flying with them now, but come on...

    They certainly do seem to be suffering. The Air Tattoo line up for the flying display is pretty standard compared to previous years. Only real star is going to be the Vulcan and an A10 Thunderbolt.

    For the first time in near on 20 years i am not prepared to pay near on £40, so have decided to goto a farmers field and pay a small fee and see it from only a slightly further distance away than being on the show ground.

    Its a sad state of affairs, but if they are wanting that sort of money, then they need to attract big.

    Cracking pics from the GWFOS, the arrows can always put on a good display!

    I saw them at the Cosford airshow last month - absolutely Peeing it down the entire day, and they managed the flat display they do with 8 aircraft as 2 were U/S...

    Now that's preparation...
