Bournemouth Air Festival Day Four: what's happening today?
7:00am Sunday 1st September 2013 in News
It's the last day of the Bournemouth Air Festival, and if you're trying to work out whether to come, here's what you need to know.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: The Vulcan flight has been cancelled, according to its Twitter feed, because of a fuel leak. More details on the live blog.
It's all about the Arvo Vulcan today, making its one and only appearance at this year's festival thanks to some sterling fundraising work by the Vulcan to the Sky Trust, Lord Stephen Young of Westbury and Waxham, and the sponsorship of Adrian Gunner of Merley House.

Thanks to Mr Gunner, the Vulcan will also be playing a starring role in what promises to be a truly spectacular heritage flypast, featuring the Vulcan, Meteor, Vampire, Miss Demeanour and the Sea Vixen together for the first time.
But there's plenty of high octane action too: the Eurofighter Typhoon kicks off the flying at 12pm, followed by the has-to-be-seen-to-be-believed aerobatics of Gerald Cooper.
