    Gala going well so far although timings running about 20mins down. The little pair of A&J put on an awesome display this morning. Is there any more info on the climax tomorrow evening? I've heard suggestions of engine cavalcade. Manston with 11 on and the 66 with a heavy frieght.... Any more news on this?
