Team Swift ( a glider & tug display team that is the most extreme we have ever seen ), ie, they do the display tied together.
Tom Cassels ( u.k. aerobatic champion).
And maybe (if we can swing it) the Vulcan bomber xr558 ( as its there home base, and part of the lottery commission rules is that they have to do charity days). This is only a wish.
