Ahh maybe not i think the one at Bristol zoo was called bugger and why we have worked out that RIAT havnt bothered to get proper mongolian YAK just Brizl YAK. kind of similar but you can actually understand what a Mongolian YAK says, absolutely no feckin chance of understanding the Brizzle one.

Just as an idea to make RIAT special i was wondering if there is an anniversary colour scheme for the YAK i think its about the YAK's 5 millionth year this year, perhaps a celebration of that in either a special colour scheme or haircut seems fitting.

We could also have a 5 million years of the YAK celebration and perhaps have a range of YAK's from present day intelligently evolved mogolian YAKS right down to the earliest primitive YAK's like the the hairy bikers.....

With all these rumours of Mongolian Yak, why haven't the organisers invited an Egyptian Buffalo and Russian Bisonand have a cow meet, aircraft could be painted in Friesian, Ayrshire or Hereford colours and RIAT could milk the success, no imagination :mad:

And where's Joe McElderry? :mad:

You had to leak this weeks update didnt you :grin:

Tibetan YAK (s)

Russian Bison (s)

Egyptian Buffalo (f) role demo will perform a water drop and its gonna stink

Mongolian Yak (f) we are very excited that mongolia become the 94th country at the airtattoo, this rare example from Ulan Bator will perform a full afterburner run, an amazing feat its pilot cattle herder nsahfgodg hadefsghevov will light the afterburners with a zippo lighter while holding onto 2 udders, an incredible display that deserves a very large pat on the back.

Queens jubilee formation will be made up of a formation run past of 76 wilderbeast who will form a E.R formation and then trample Richard Hammond to death.

Talks are ongoing with the Tanzanian Gazelle team about participation and there may well be an update as soon as we catch up with them..

Bad news regarding the afterburner run from the Mongolian Yak I'm afraid. :mad:

Following the infamous Cottesmore B-1 incident, the elf and safety executive have met and worried there may be an end of runway steak out by togs looking for the rear on full reheat, knowing the flammable properties of the Yak's long hairy coat and combining with the attempted ignition could result in an instant fireball and roasting of the Yak there will be no chance of being "Blown by T-Bone" at RIAT 2012. :facepalm:

There is a space in the programme now and they hope to fillet. :yahoo:

Well I just think that that it is a great pity that RIAT are not taking the opportunity to put up a special Gloster formation of Gladiator, Meteor and Oldspot. Come on, DBH, pull your finger out. It shouldn't be too much to ask. :mad:

And don't get me started on the ground exhibitions. The guys doing the 1940s village are desperate to do something different, and I heard a rumour that their 1970s council estate re-enactment plan was going swimmingly well until H+S got involved and scotched it. Apparently there's a 'no flares' rule at Fairford.

Do you seriously think they could leave all that litter around for weeks uncollected :mad: what a FOD hazard that would be. The static is too cluttered as it is without prefab sprouting up all over the place. You'll be wanting a disco instead of the stage next :mad:

I think the 70's council estate is a fantastic idea...

1, The role demo could involve proper pyro stuff like a Dustbins filled with aersoals placed in the alleyways of the prefabs eventually burning the entire estate down, while the airbase firecrews are held at bay by some well drilled brick throwing, the ban of flares probably right in this case but maybe an exepmtion could be applied for but a big warning to all as the trauma of being reminded of wearing them could be a bit much for some.

2, A council estate style 70's sweet shop would fit in great as would be fun to brick the window and make off with a marathon and some opal fruits...

As for the Gloster tribute swill idea, that would really take the bacon for me and leave the other airshows pig sick, i for one will hog the crowd line to see that.

This week's update has seen more bad news, the TBM700 is no longer flying and now people are concerned there is no toilet break built into the flying display :mad: I can see floods of pee all over the showground as a result of this selfish move by DBH and the French Army, spotters and togs holding back until :sick: you know what, I hope they have enough medical cover and clothes outlets on site.

And why have Yeovilton got two Navy Rafales and we have to make do with cruddy old Super Etendards :mad:

And still no mention of Joe McElderry in the update :mad:

Agree with all of that, we just get a Super Hornet and a couple of super Etendards...

I bet the eurpean shows have an Awesome Hornet and a pair of mega etendards or something..

The toilet break is a massive concern, how dare DBH not take this into account. still urinating in the alley of the prefab council estate village may solve that problem and be in keeping with the village itself. :wink:

It's an absolute scandal, Dan! I mean, all these people who are paying hard earned money to come to an airshow and what are they presented with? Wall to wall static aircraft displays and an eight-hour flying display! Whatever are DBH thinking of? Next thing we'll hear, they'll be putting up grandstands so that these people can get views of the flying aircraft. Disgraceful! :wall:

This is terrible news :mad: Is Jedward really the best they can manage this year, I know budgets are being cut by these acts around the globe, but an act that didn't even make the final is an utter shambles, I appreciate Leona Lewis is busy but surely they could stretch to Leon thingy, if they can find him, at least he won it ( I think). :mad:

Is the Raptor going to be at RIAT this year, there is a gap in the published display schedule? :whistle:
