Can't get to the show on either day, but will be passing nearby on Saturday.
Anyone know approximate display time?
Just seen reply regarding Sunday - Will Saturday be the same?
Thanks

Well absolutely shattered. The weather turned out to be glorious. Took my youngest son on a Tour of the Vulcan to show him my obsession. Took photos of his name in the bomb bay, then watched the display. STUNNING ;D ;D ;D ;D she was easily the star of the entire show.
My personal thanks go to all the Engineers who give blood sweat and tears to make sure shes fit and able to do whats asked of her.
And to everyone who donates money and time!!! ;D/color]

Really?  The videos I've seen don't like look no power was used!! A couple of those climbs would have required some oomph!  The wind direction would have taken the sound away from the crowd, perhaps thats why it seemed quiet?
