Looks an exciting event; will try and get a ticket! Shame that BA were unable to sort something like this when they announced the 747 retirement

I'm up north in tier 3, otherwise would have tried to attend as well.

Good luck to those trying to get tickets and if anyone here gets to go, do share some photos if you have the chance.

Those Vloggers will be gagging to do this.
No doubt have been messaging VS for "press" invite.

Ha ha - I suspect so too. Understand they have a special press day on the Friday; which I guess should mean at least some pressure relieved for spaces on the Saturday.

Same here - had in basket and then vanished. Only person I've seen who got a ticket for Saturday also happens to have 88.5k Instagram followers.. not suspect at all.

Congrats
Out of interest, did you use the app, or just go online?
I'm so disapointed I didnt manage to get one.

I refreshed dead on the hour, but still missed out... luck of the draw I guess.
