    I'm in kirton Lindsay now but I can't see any aeroplanes due to the sky being black breet. There's a cracking butchers though.

    No pal, just working here for the week. Topliss butchers are outstanding for home made growlers.

    Yes I know, they are rather spiffing, aren't they.
    Perhaps the best in the area, unlike Barnsley area Lincolnshire doesn't make very good pork pies. Even Melton Mowbray genuine pork pies are a strange flavour, and a bit too greasy for my liking.

    No vulcan. No party.

    The last flying vulcan the Spirit of great britain was grounded in 2015 due to the lack of skills in the commercial avionics sector to fix it.

    The latest info re. aircraft flying and those on static show is....
    Now I may be a bit out of touch as far as display timings go but to fill five or six hours with 14 sets of aircraft seems a bit thin. Apart from a very few, most are old planes, acrobatics or parachute jumpers. Where are the heady days of Finningley and all the super noisy jets, Vulcans, Lightnings, B52, Phantoms etc.
    I know the Cold War meant there were so many to choose from but nowadays I think they're struggling to put a decent show on. The latter days at Waddington were becoming very poor.

    Red Arrows
    • RAF Typhoon
    • BBMF - Lancaster and 4x Spitfires
    • Belgian F-16
    • French Alpha Jet
    • Breitling Wingwalkers
    • Catalina
    • Global Stars
    • Gyro Air Displays
    • P-51 Mustang
    • Norwegian Air Force Historical Squadron Vampires
    • Gazelle Squadron
    • BAC Strikemasters
    • Rich Goodwin Pitts Special
    • RAF Falcons



    Confirmed static aircraft include:

    Canadian CF-18 Hornet, Buccaneer S2B, F-4F Phantom, Hunter Mk.58, Su-22M-4 'Fitter', Gazelle helicopter, Dutch F-16 Fighting Falcons x2, RAF Hawk T.1, RAF Hawk T.2, RAF King Air, RAF Tornado x2, RAF Tucano x2, RAF Grob Tutor, RAF Typhoon.

    Come to Duxford for the Battle of Britain show

    Duxford Battle of Britain Air Show

    Turn left off the M11 at Duxford and then right at the roundabout into the village. Go down to the school and you can pay for parking for £8 for all you in the car. Take a chair and watch and enjoy. If you want you can buy a burger, a bacon sandwich, or a hot dog, or all three in a bun. (I'm likely to be serving). All proceeds to the school. Be glad to see you.

    By the way ignore the bloke on the right had side as you go towards the school, he's only in it for himself.

    I haven't been to a show for years, I worry I might be a little disappointed.
    Old Warden in the late 90's was the last...top notch it was too.
    The old shows were so dramatic, I read recently that overflying the crowd had been banned in the 50's but I can recall some in the mid to late 60's....Dunstable...a Mustang in a vertical dive immediately above us, Finningley... stood watching one display, the moment they turned away, four Voodoo's shook us to the core going over our heads from behind....happy days!!
    With hindsight I was quite lucky, my dad was a founder member of Doncaster Gliding Club, so I spent many hours with the Cadets and T21's and the club's own Tiger Moth, in and out of the wartime hangers smelling of fuel, leather, fabric and dope (the aircraft kind)...his elder brother worked for De Havilland, so we got to enjoy the open days with one particularly cracking display br Sea Vixen's for workers families....awesome stuff, you couldn't buy it.

    By the way, I saw all the planes mentioned in the op from a garden at the end of the runway at Fairford the other weekend for nowt.....
