We are there to help you. We have a zero-tolerance for abuse of marshals (they are all volunteers) and you will be removed from the airfield if you abuse them.

Please take note of the following information.

DO NOT CROSS ANY BLUE ROPES YOU WILL BE ENTERING LIVE AIRSPACE!!!  

Every year we have a number of people who do this, it causes a great deal of disruption as we have to ground up to 3 flight lines until we have removed you.
