    Just in case you haven't seen my website here are a few snippets of info for next year............

    No Tornado F-3 Display - Lack of ground crew / funds etc
    No Jaguar Display - Withdrawn (almost)
    No Nimrod Display - Conversion to new MR4a

    on the plus side........

    Typhoon Display will be single seater
    Second Typhoon will do a duo with BBMF Spitfire XIX
    RAF Canberra Display (at least for Waddington)

    It is because they are so expensive to run and maintain, in perfect world at least one of every type of aircraft would be in flying condition, however this is not a perfect, so we will have to do with what there is. Which unfortunately is less and less each year :( So it looks like there are many aircraft I won't see fly.
