I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

This is an event for the association members only - apparantely "normal" parking and viewing spots will be severely restricted or even closed. To quote form the website...
"this is not in any way an event to which the public will have access"
Hmmm Evil or Very Mad

Its "officially" for the RAF Valley Association members and invited guests of the staion commander. http://www.valleyaviationsociety.net/index.htm
Another website I found stated that "normal" viewing spots that we usually use will be either severely restricted or closed off.

This is the other page where the parking limits are discussed as follows
"This event will NOT be open to members of the general public and entry will be strictly by advanced invitation only. Access in and around the perimeter fences and Spotters Car Park will be severely restricted by patrolled road closures and 'no waiting' coned areas imposed on the day. This is not an 'airshow' or other such event to which the public can expect to have access.

Of course, if peeps really want to go, then you can prob get to see most of the stuff from several other places ...including just off the roundabout on the A5 near the valley junction Smile Smile
