Wings

When is the running order for the flying display put together?

The flying display planning begins in September with confirmation on the participants starting to come through in March. The running order planning begins in May but will change weekly due to the additions, cancellations and the changing requirements of participants. It is not properly finalised until the week of the show and even then it can change, for technical, weather and/or pilot health reasons.

What times are the aircraft flying?

Please click here to read the current aviation line up for Wings & Wheels. These are subject to change, and will be updated often in the final run up to the Show. Please head to the 'What's on Wings' page for further information.

What is the difference in each day's flying displays?

Generally there are only a few differences in the flying displays, but please keep checking our What's on Wings page for further information.

Can I tune into the radio frequency?

Unfortunately, due to restrictions and safety measures in place to protect the pilots, we are unable to disclose the radio frequency. Our commentators give full coverage of the movements of our pilots and we also have our very own W&W Event Radio with exclusive interviews and information broadcast throughout the weekend. Please listen out to them on the day.

Will I incur a booking fee?

Tickets purchased through our online ticketing agent, See Tickets, are subject to the following fees:

See Tickets Booking Fees

The face value of a ticket is set by the event organisers. They don't pay us anything to sell their tickets, so in order to make money See has to charge a little bit on top. The ticket cost is the face value plus the booking fee. We have to do this on a per-ticket basis to cover the cost of providing a 7 days a week, 24 hours a day booking service, labour costs, credit card commissions and all the other costs associated with running our business. 

See Tickets Transaction Fee

The transaction fee covers the costs of processing your order, packing and delivering the tickets to you. In many cases it also covers the cost of producing your tickets. This fee can also apply to tickets arranged for collection. The transaction fee applies per order not per ticket. If you purchase six tickets, you only pay one transaction fee. The transaction fee will vary depending on what type of postage we are being asked to use by the event organiser and these costs are reflective of the amount that See are charged by despatch companies. First class post and Registered Post prices will vary accordingly. See only send tickets securely for events that do not issue duplicate tickets in the event that tickets get lost in the post.

 

Purchasing direct from Wings & Wheels through our online shop (select tickets only) and telephone payments will include a £2.50 booking fee. A fee of £1.50 is payable per transaction for debit and credit cards from ticketing outlets and purchasing tickets on the day of the Show. Paying by cash at ticketing outlets and at the Show does not incur an additional fee.

Can I buy tickets on the day?
