    Hi batsi,

    Usually flying isnt announced on a regular day-to-day basis, but if you want flying something will most likely be flying on weekends/bank holidays , especially in school holidays. Last time I went the chap at the desk ran through the list of flying for the day so I guess the only way to know is if you go

      I was there in April on a weekday and there was test flying going on.
      The two seat Buchon was in the pattern with a Spitfire.
      I would think what you seen in any given day is reflected by what's come out of the shops after service.
      There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.

        Test flying during the week is a bit hit & miss. Weekends are usually better for flying like today when a 1967 Cessna O-2A Super Skymaster in USAF markings dropped in for a couple of hours.
