Bournemouth Air Festival 2019

Postby Reds Rolling on Sun 17 Feb 2019, 2:05 pm

29th Aug - 1st Sept.

So with no Red Arrows appearing, just what will BAF have to offer this year?

Hopefully the return of the Typhoon at least, and perhaps another foreign display team?

I live a few miles away but I've not been to this event. I'm not really a fan of seaside airshows.

I would have thought the organisers would have been after the Breitling Jet Team again as replacement for the Red Arrows - unfortunately Bournemouth is not on their calendar..

Looks like SWAHF J35 is confirmed according to their provisional schedule for this year.

Will be great if that is the case. Have you got a source?

Rest of the line-up looks a tad thin for this time of year.

MiG-15, too?

Their website hasn’t yet been updated (unless it is done as I type), but that looks like about as good a classic jet gathering as one can muster in this day and age!

A 'Stella' lineup - is that a parade of wife beaters? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Seriously, there are some real choice items there. The Draken and Ultimate Fighters team are A-list. I genuinely hope the general public realise this, and that the lack of Red Arrows doesn't mean lack of an airshow.

How is the Draken allowed to fly if the Swedish pilots don't have the correct DA?

Just been onto them as I thought Breitling were appearing and now they've disappeared from the schedule. Many years ago I was phoned up by Jim Maitland on several occasions asking if I had shots of various things appearing at the Battle of Britain show as they got confirmation.......MONDAY; "Have you got shots of Patrouille de France".....yes Jim will send them over. TUESDAY; " Never guess what , we've got Frecce Tricolori coming now , do you have any shots of these?" .....(me very excited ) yes Jim will send them over.
These teams were requested and confirmed at the last minute, so I think it worth a call to Frecce' , wouldn't that be amazing.

Well the Draken has really put the cat among the pigeons. I wonder if the CAA have relented and are allowing them to do over water displays this year.

You'd hope so or that'd be a pretty bad booking by the team :facepalm:

Although many may have already guessed the schedule for the RAF Typhoon is;
2x displays on Friday (1x Afternoon, 1x Dusk)
1x display on Saturday
1x display on Sunday

The jet will also be departing/returning Bournemouth Airport for a display in Dartmouth on the Saturday and Sunday
