For the attention of the mods and humble apologies to Lambo but when initially replying to his post about the ATR arriving this evening I accidently hit the report button instead of reply without noticing and then submitted it.

Again apologies for this senior moment :oops:

the social media team seem utterly useless, having seen a provisional line up for tomorrows flying i'd be very disappointed as most of the Red Bull stuff isn't even on it... :(

What's the issue with the F-16s? Reading some reports they've only been able to perform one display out of the few planned.

I thought the P-8 returned? Did not see the F-16s or the Spanish AV-8B today, perhaps north side? Otherwise a very broad selection, although down in numbers. There did not seem to be many people attending today either. Only moan would be that it was just too hot to be outside, (better than too wet two years ago) so much more time was spent inside the colder halls. The security and bag checking pre boarding the buses from car park was much improved too, drove straight in and was whisked directly to the show-ground.

One F16 arrived at 12:20 (91 361) and then parked over the farside.

It then sounded like an F-16 was powered-up over there, in its booked slot timing but it never ventured out, and I think they said they would move the 727/blades timings to slightly earlier.

If you search via date, it gives today's display times (no idea if it's accurate), all about the Harrier for me at , hopefully, 2.11pm

And on FR24 it looked like the Qatar A350-1000 and 777-300ER both have departed last night...

It was marketed as "FAB Friday", others can choose more appropriate "F Words" as it clearly was not FAB,

I did get to a pub called The Gloster to say farewell to the Harrier (hard to imagine seeing a future display) as it swooped right over our heads, just wonderful, what an utterly superb aircraft, really FAB IMHO

Just got back from FIA was on site, rubbish day flying display was not inspiring which was the whole point of the day. Harrier did a nice display and a nice hover in front of me however that was it. Glad I got a free ticket for today would have been very annoyed if not. Halls which are meant to be open all the companies where packing up by mid afternoon. Other things that annoyed me being told i could not sit somewhere due to aircraft taxing in front of me same as Duxford. Barriers are very close to aircraft cannot get nice shots but thats aways been a problem. :tumbleweed: :tumbleweed:

That's the first time I've ever heard of something like this. Surely if there's somewhere you can't sit or a place the show doesn't want any people to be at, they fence it off etc...?

They allowed an area to fill up only for a bloke to come along over and kick us out, no warning in other area there were signs but not here many people were not amused.

I can confirm there is only one place you can view anything from outside and that's just by The Swan (which was charging £40 a table!)

Presumably the entry fee goes towards paying people to stand in the woods and even along the Basingstoke canal and stop anyone from getting anywhere near....

It was nice to see the Harrier from afar but even if I'd paid to get in it probably would not have been as good as the old days by the seaside with the RAF.

the OSR (was it A or B?) 727 stole the show for me :clap:

I think it says a lot about the state of FIA if a 727 and a Harrier have taken best display!

Which place is this if you don't mind me asking? I don't want to turn up and set myself up for the day to then be told to have to move :dunno:

It was a patch of grass on the fence line to right where the reds are now park next to some metal pads where an aircraft had been park during the week and behind is the Embraer legacy 500.

Sounds like the area where they move the displaying aircraft out during the week, based on static for the morning.

I thought the flying was good, not brilliant but OK. The LM100 was a bit of a disappointment as it's display was about 1/2 the duration and 1/2 the aerobatics of when I saw it in validation. Still good but somebody seems to have held it back for the live show. I like seeing big airliners being thrown around and generally within the confines of the airfield. The A350 100 and A330 Neo were both very good IMHO. The 727 water drop is a sight worthy of any show. The static is pretty much the same format as recent years although I felt there more ability to move in a straight line than the last few shows but that's a lot of different airframes. Take away the French involvement and it would be just as good as Fairford for me although obviously much shorter. With the French RIAT wins hands down.


The pilot aborted his display as his radar depicted multiple hits of encroaching aircraft. Turned out it was the fault of exhibitors in the halls doing demos which they're not supposed to do when there is display flying going on.
