Tomorrow's weather will be the same as today's
Last year I remember heavy showers forecast, scanning memory but not sure if i went up Sat or Sun, there were heavy showers about but most missed RIAT
I do not think that RIAT could make it any clearer..... so please read and take in!

I understand and respect the sentiment, but it's a little naive to beleive that because it is written it can never happen.
I suspect they didn't originally have any intention of cancelling 2008.
So what you keep saying is that if the rain is so bad that the car parks on Saturday get churned up and cars get stuck, then RIAT will deliberately direct cars onto the quagmire on Sunday, so they can stand by their statement - of course they wouldn't.
On a brighter note, I don't think it will happen as the rain doesn't appear to be that heavy. Expecting a disrupted show though. At the moment I'd be very surprised if we get a full show on either day and mega surprised if we see a high display from any of the display teams.
In terms of car parking i believe the majority is on concrete (Red and Green) and the Blue car park had the heavy duty plastic strips laid down throughout the whole car park. Would have though this would prevent the field from getting churned up as apart from parking you wouldn't be driving on the grass.
The point is they learned a lesson from 2008 and now have metal tracking on high flow areas in the parking fields.

You really don't want the show to go ahead do you?
