During these four days in total many formation training flights are performed, where the owners of the Chipmunks were trained by a couple of very experienced RAF pilots. All Chipmunks arrived on Thursday 9 may, except for the French Chipmunks, which arrived on Friday.
Due to the less than impressive weather conditions, three Chipmunks had cancelled their participation as they were stranded in the UK, also two Austers did not show up, next to some Bulldogs.
Due to the poor weather conditions, the all-aircraft formation flight, called Balbo, was cancelled for the Saturday.Next year, the meet will be held between 28 may and 1 june.
Registrations between brackets were not shown on aircraft.
