Well heard the yaks cancelled now anyway so doesnt matter :sad: , probably the same one from Bristol zoo anyway so nothing new, thought RIAT would have at least got a different yak after all it is the queens jubilee.
Sadly though no yak means no support either, was hoping a couple of camels would bring his gear and hang around for static would have fitted in nicely with the transport thing me thinks.

Im really disappointed that RIAT havnt got a Burmese spitfire on the list, surely they could have dug one of those up from somewhere!

Just a complete lack of consideration for the aviation fan :mad:

No chance of a B-1B I'm afraid... not since I upset the display pilot in 2010 by mentioning that he'd bounced it three times down the rwy on arrival. He wasn't amused and has probably told all his mates not to bother with RIAT as we're a critical and unappreciative bunch.
Sorry 'bout that.

Ah you dont know about Santa? He was due to appear but apparently was just a rumour so Tim Prince is going to sneak into the static when you are sleeping and leave a big pile of prersents that were not on your list but those better informed than you thouight youd like

I can see why you'd want the pram.

Yeah I agree but I was going to suggest some tiny light aircraft that you can see most of the year in the UK..... but with a coloured roundel on, so I can put it in my scrap book. A converted airliner not at all like the ones you can see at Heathrow 24/7 though, this one has a colourful two foot roundel on - GET IN! I can take a photo of it and add it to my collection! :hypno:

Who needs the epic sight and sound of the B-1 when you can see this awe inspiring sight....

Combine the two. Put a tiny light aircraft with or without roundel behind the the full reheat B1 see how far pilot of said tiny light aircraft can go before landing in field near Brize.

:lmao: Now there's a first, real moaning on this thread. :joystick:

A B-1 in the static sounds pretty much the same as a plastic Colombian trainer I'd have thought? :snack:

Me too, i havnt been able to moan have been in casualty for 4 hours following a nasty accident.

I went to this celebrities event you see and saw Gary Numan, i asked him if he was bringing a Harvard to RIAT and he said no, i then saw Dan Snow and knowing he has made programmes about spitfires lately i asked if he was bringing a Spitfire to RIAT and another No, i then saw another aviation fan Michael Fish and asked him if a Hurricane was coming, bloody hell he went mental :mad: , so a few stitches later im O.K to moan again.

But yeh really disappointed everyone moans on the no moaning thread and no-one moans on the moaning thread, come on lets have a proper moan!!!!

Am I the only one fuming mad that there aren't going to be MiG-29s from Turkmenistan? I mean, come on, it's not like we're asking for the North Koreans or anything!

Also, I was absolutely incensed when I learned that the Croatian Formation Toilet Team had cancelled their appearance. I had a deuce down on those guys attending! :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

I don't think anyones been 'moaning' at the line up in the RIAT 2012 participants thread in any case. Its just some of us arent dancing in the streets, climbing up lamp posts, polishing our lenses at the thought of being able to view a static training aircraft or a 767 that happens to not carry civillian markings. What happens to 99% of those avid snappers pics anyway? Don't they usually get burnt to a DVD and filed away in a cabinet never to be seen again :lol:

Filed away never to be seen again shocking quote that... 5% of them re-appear on here in the golden oldies :lol:

As for the moaning, there has been moaning on the other thread course there has.. and fair do's if anyone isnt happy they arnt happy, from my point of view, having been a national league rugby player for several years and now running my own business i fully appreciate the problems that RIAT encounter and wouldnt criticise them publically on a forum (privately in a letter if really unhappy but havnt ever needed to) as i fully appreciate a, what they do and b, probably dont understand the facts behind the decisions.
I know with my own employees they look at things in a very diffierent way to reality and completely dont appreciate the true reasoning, they think you have endless money to throw at them, every decision is personal and thats the nature of folk im afraid and i see that mindset reflected here, but i dont like the behind the moniker moaning i find that a tad wimpy and i dont like the moaning in the participants thread as i read it to find out about participant and it wastes my feckin time :mad:

Personally i am not jumping up and down with joy at the line up no, i would like to see the some US stuff on the list soon, the B1 & B2 yeh great love one but there are lots of ideals we all like, and i for one would like the U2 thought that was great from RIAT what they did and be great to see it come as a result but as i said, ideals and all that. im not jumping up and down with excitement yet, but there again i am not jumping up and down with excitement at current fuel prices and both are a sign of the times and im a realist, on that basis its a bloody good line up..

My final moan is just a thought, i dont like the individual criticism of individual items, just imagine someone said to you, could you donate some money please and you said there you go theres 83p in change and they said i dont feckin want that i only want notes, you are going to say p**s off ungrateful **** just imagine an air arm says there you go have a grob tutor and lets see what else we can do, RIAT cant say dont want that its crap can they.. it rightfully comes and may be the lure for something better, i find those criticism a bit short sighted,

Now i am looking at it from a business point of view, i dont know RIAT or anyone at DBH, but i think i would be safe in saying if a star item was available it would be there, and i trust them in that.

As for pop stars i think i could moan but we wont go there, experiment tried and hopefully failed.

Thats my moan and its in the moaners thread where it should be.

I havent been to a Tattoo for years,for me Fairford 2012 would be for about an hour and a halfs flying displays,and though Interesting they might be,static isnt in the same league as flying for me!
If they would only put my choice of flying displays in a block (Naturally the block with the best weather!)then I would be there,see my beauties display,have a steady mooch around.... and vamoose!
But of course we are all different,and best of luck to you that go....
I just wanted to get a serious moan in! :grin:
