We are expecting a unique airshow with large numbers of participants for 2018. Because of this we may have a different flying programmes on each of the three days.
So with lots of displays from the same type of aircraft, I expect to give the participants all a day off, to prevent the display to become too samey, without upsetting the operators too much about not having their teams in the flying displays.

I think they need a bunch more performers before that becomes an issue.

As an aside, the self confirmations have us at 9 fast jet displays (not counting the L-159 as a fast jet no matter what they tell us) so far...and it's only march. Adding on the RAF Typhoon makes that 10.

SoloTurk has just listed 14th and 15th for RIAT. Don't know whether to read anything into that, but it would fit in with the themes publicised so far if it was those dates only.

EDIT: playitcool got there first. Spook :smile:
its time to kick the tyres and light the fires

There is a nice little interview with Andy Armstrong in the latest issue of Aeroplane with a few details about the Friday, in Which he states that the Royal Review Flypast will be different to the one over London, And that they are expecting at least one of each type currently operated by the RAF on the ground for the review.

Will be good to see a Shadow, a Reaper, and a Griffin HAR2 at Fairford then.

Four RAF aircraft spanning the 1930s, 40s and 50s are confirmed for the static display at RIAT 2018. An Auster Mk.5 observation aircraft and three trainers; the Miles Magister and two Jet Provost T.3 jet trainers, will help tell the tale of the pre and post-War RAF.

Seriously though...I think it's fair to say that there have been more exciting updates than this in the past.

I suppose it's a little bit of meat for the static. :tumbleweed:
Unless of course RIAT does what it did last year, and announce the French later in the day...
