We can now confirm that the 727 will return to #FIA2018 as another great addition to our flying display ✈✅
On the Saturday, we will also have another 727 form part of our static line-up!

The label on the 2nd Tornado shape says Hurjet. As it's parked next to the other TAI assets it may actually be a FSM of this proposed supersonic trainer.

Farnie often seem to have a USAF F16 flying, a rare thing indeed.
That plus AV8B equals tempted!

Apologies if it’s already been mentioned but as far as I can make out there is an Antonov An 124 Ruslan set out by the Qatar 747 8F and 747-800.

That's what the plan currently has, 2 years ago it was A124 and one 748f both Volga.

FAB Friday, Weekend, Flying


written under it on the website.

For FAB Friday, I count only 7 flyers on the official website. Flying Bulls etc are listed as public weekend - I presume that means Sat and Sun only. Is it normally that sparse or have I misunderstood something.

Perfectly normal as they don't reveal what is in the trade show until a few weeks before. No idea why, seems crazy to me. So it could be that you could add A400M, A350, F-18, Typhoon and others to that list, but we simply don't know. :tumbleweed:

Where can I find a list of the aircraft on display in the Trade Display Static Mon - Thursday , the website isn't brilliant and I cant find the usual map showing
location and names of what's in the Trade show park. :sad:

Just trying to decide if a trade day visit is worth the ticket price

I messaged the FIA Facebook page to see if there would be anymore announcements, this was their reply:

We are hoping for some more. We are waiting to find out how much we can reveal from the Trade Week that is staying for the Public Weekend!
