From the image, you can see where the crowd-line will be on the northern side of the runway and that gives a wonderful opportunity for aircraft of all types to run-up and down the length of the airport along the centre line, giving the best possible view to all.
The pilots' briefing is scheduled for 10:00am although I'm not quite sure how I'm going to be able to battle through the traffic to get there and then leave to go back to Herne Bay and my own waiting aircraft in time for the start. I'm sure it will work out somehow.
The display aircraft will either be holding above Reculver or North Foreland, waiting to run-in and I'm guessing the controller will be stacking them according to their speed. At Farnborough a few years ago I had ten minutes to do my thing with a USAF B1 bomber coming in right behind me, so good reason to make as quick an exit as possible.

Enough said, I had better go to the meeting of the local residents association and see if our newly elected UKIP County Councillor, a) shows-up and b) knows the difference between Westgate and Westbrook.
