So that means yet another Legends/RIAT clash then? Why couldn't they leave it as it's been for the past few years, ie the 2nd weekend of July.. OK, I know its only the 1st on the Sunday but...oh well, whatever..... :dizzy: As I look at it still makes 8th/9th the second weekend...and it's not as though future RIAT dates weren't know, they announced the next 5 years last July.... :dunno:

Especially in view of the historical nature of RIAT 2018 where, one assumes, they will be trying to get some Spits/Hurricanes into the flying programme,

just bonkers

and me.

The Fighter Collection will say, "we're on the same weekend every year, so its RIAT clashing not us..". The reality is, RIAT show some common sense and flexibility and fall back every other year to accommodate Farnborough. Legends could so easily to the same.

To have the UK's only two world class aviation events happen on the same weekend is absurd. And in next year of all years, RAF 100, bloody minded.

I will carry on doing Legends every other year.

Maybe they're planning to try and benefit from the clash like they did last year with the heritage flight/ F-22 display :dunno:

Sounds like I might get a place on the fence at Legends next year then.....

As a one day per year RIAT man I can do Legends the other day - just have to guess the weather right!

I really enjoyed Legends this year, but will be at RIAT next year. I know I'm not the only one who thinks it works well being the same weekend as Yeovilton - to make the most of the long journey down south.

Unless, God forbid, Legends only sells 10,000 tickets & they bin-it! Then you get the fence to yourself. (oh!...& Brian?) :biggrin:

I think Flyng Legends has done pretty well on the previous occasions that the two airshows have shared weekends. And to be honest, I'm sure Legends will find its way even if it does miss the odd Spitfire, Hurricane or Blenheim for one year.

Its just a little bit irritating for those that want to attend both!
