Noice.
It's already quite a good looking flying display, with plenty of time for more to be added both flying and static. I dont think it can be argued that the show has been shrinking of late, hopefully the sad loss of Culdrose will have at least some positive effect on Yeovilton. The skyraider would be a great catch.

Pitts S-2S Muscle Biplane – Rich Goodwin Airshows (Flying)

Ex-RAF fast jet pilot Rich Goodwin will give his Pitts S-2S ‘Muscle Biplane’, aptly-registered ‘G-EWIZ’, another exhilarating work-out over Royal Naval Air Station Yeovilton on Saturday 8 July. A decades-old design customised with state-of-the-art parts, the Muscle Biplane is capable of performing extraordinary unlimited aerobatic manoeuvres, including Rich’s trademark ‘Tower of Power’.
Making its fourth consecutive Air Day appearance, this electrifying combo is set to once again wow the crowds. The aircraft is this year sponsored by hi-tech customer experience firm Anana Ltd.

Another update...

PARTICIPATION UPDATE:
Apache AH1 – Army Air Corps (Flying)
Apache AH1 - Army Air Corps (Static)
The awesome British Army Apache AH1 returns to the Royal Naval Air Station Yeovilton Air Day on Saturday 8 July to give yet another pounding, pyrotechnic-enhanced role demonstration. Armed with Hellfire missiles, CRV7 rockets and a nose-mounted M230 chain gun, the Apache counts among the world’s most potent battlefield helicopters.
The Army Air Corps’ outstanding Attack Helicopter Display Team - AHDT showcases the type’s primary qualities: speed, manoeuvrability and pure presence. An additional Apache will be part of Air Day's static display. Stay tuned for news of additional rotary content in upcoming updates.

The Swordfish and Skyraider were confirmed two weeks ago and the Pitts last Wednesday and on top of those you can add the Apache.

The flying display was pretty good last year, but the static was pretty dire, made worse by their obsession with putting the barriers so close you could almost touch the aircraft, but not photograph them very easily. :whistle:

A common recurring issue with the Navy shows. Culdrose was even worse. I think we can only remind ourselves not everyone is there to photograph like us. It means the world to the youngsters to get close and interact with the aircraft. And if it gets some youth fired up for naval aviation, i'll happily struggle a little with my angles :smile:

There were some real gems in the static last year. The Belgian Falcon and German Transall for example.

That's strange, does it specifically say the Rafale or does it just have a photo of the jet? The French Air Force Rafale is free on 8th July but has a show the next day in France, so not impossible. Could be referring to the French Navy Rafale pair that may be confirmed in due course?
