Wow.. that will be some spectacle.

I wonder if they could be persuaded to venture slightly west of the IOW and visit Bournemouth ? It would be a great 'taster' for the Bournemouth Air Festival which starts 2 days later..................  ;)

This sort of reminds me of the dialogue in the Battle of Britain film - scene in the control room at Bentley Priory ( I think) at the height of the battle

something like...

"Everything up?"
"Everything"
"Any reserves?"
"No"
"That's what I just told the Prime Minister"

"Robin stressed the event is still in the planning stages and the number of aircraft is yet to be finalised."

I think this is some way off of being organized yet, but hopeful.
I said "no more passwords" and look what happened!
