Was airside at Farnborough yesterday and there was plenty of action. The F16, F18, Mig 29's and Merlin were very impressive.

A lot of aircraft movement and practice through till 1700.

No sign of the 380 though

Does anyone know when the a380 is due to arrive? I am fed up of rushing to my back door every time i hear something flying over.

All I can say is don't expect it before 'the weekend'; all examples flying so far are tied up in the test programme until then. Fairford might also be lucky.

Understand F-WWOW set to depart Toulouse at about 11.30 local. Should put her in Farnborough at a little after midday-ish U.K time unless she is going to do a few trials whilst airborne.

Does anybody know the status of the second Osprey (which I'm assuming is still residing in Sunny Iceland)?

Hi EGLF. My 7 year old daughter is desperate to see the A380, so if you get a heads up on its arrival time, please post.

We live a couple of miles away so our bikes are poised and ready to go!

Ta.
