I’d like to see Bialo-Czerwone Iskry from Poland - when was the time they visited?

They would certainly be something different, with a unique type which can’t have too long left.

They were a regular at Waddington alternating with the Orliks.

A type I would be extremely happy to see at Fairford that I’ve never seen so even static would be great is a Hawk 200 series!

The closest airworthy examples are in Oman :-) although there is atleast one example that could be roaded in from Warton.

Are you sure, I cannot ever recall them at Waddington? Orliks yes.

Iskry have been to RIAT several times, both Fairford and Cottesmore, 1995, 2001 and 2003, can't remember them recently, and one of the jets was on static one year.

Indeed, I'd love to see a return of the Iskry along with the Turkish Stars and Team 60. Oh! And a debut for August 1st :grin:

Do you think there will be a mock up of tempest at next years RIAT?

But not hidden away this time (I do know why it was obviously!).

There was a plastic Dave at RIAT as early as 2007 and perhaps before that (?) so I'd imagine it's a distinct possibility.

Why a mock up?

I expect the real thing to be there, making it useless to bring in a mock up too...

You do realise the Tempest doesn't exist yet in anything but mock up form don't you?
