Rather strange. Mildenhall has very few tankers available, resulting in B1,s having to stop at the Hall for fuel.
Perhaps a Conus example shows up?

Got word that most participants will arrive on wednesday and thursday. Friday will be used for rehearsals and some last arrivals. Unfortunately the person could not tell me (or was not allowed) which aircraft will arrive when. Personal I hope the Su-27 and F-35 will arrive on Friday during the spottersday.

I bought a ticket for the spotters day on Friday to see the plains arriving. Hope it is not for nothing.

I've never been to Kleine Brogel before so can someone tell me more about the public area at the base? Are we facing the sun most of the day as we do at Sanicole?

Not like Sanicole at all. The light is good until 1500 or so.

Does anybody happen to know what base entrance is going to be used this weekend for the public, and what the parking conditions will be like? Leaving the airshow turned out to be a real disaster at the last few shows we visited so I would like to be prepared this time (if possible in any way)

If you look at the site of KB airshow you see that there are three parkings: A, B and C. B is close to the maingate (and the only parking in use during the spottersday). A is ment for visitors from the north. From there busses will bring you to the base. ( the last time I heard from Belgians they still had to walk several kilometers). Parking C is very close to entrance 2. You have to find out how to get there.

I have a ticket for A, hope it is not true that you still have to walk a few kilometres. :shock:
