RIAT have introduced a premium for the top row and aisle seats in the public grandstand this year. I accept its supply and demand, and an opportunity to raise more for the cause, but it does seem rather tight Harkins, I agree. There was a time where being keen enough to get there early was enough to get the spot you desired.

I haven't been to Yeovilton in the modern era, such a long way right on top of RIAT, but I get more tempted every year. It'll be Legends v Yeovilton, see which appeals to me more nearer the time.

I'm exactly the same. I last went in 2013 and did the arrivals day too but between the long journey, the various costs, a week at RIAT immediately after, the irksome sun position and a sense of fair play with the wife, I haven't been back since - despite always being tempted. It'll be interesting to see if this years show is any different in scale with the rebranding that's taken place. I don't really expect it to be any different if I'm honest, especially as last years looked to be pretty good anyway.

Went to buy my tickets today, two points:
1. I thought arrivals day was going to be open for longer than until 3 this year, but according to the website apparently not. They’ll kick us out just as the fun starts. Still going though!
2. The graphic has a Wildcat, an F-35 and a Swordfish, so hopefully we’ll see all three flying.
Bring it on!

That is a Wildcat, no Lynxes left in British service now sadly. :sad:

I seem to remember last year's was originally announced as 3pm, and then extended. Could be the same again.

Either way I didn't miss anything that I particularly wanted to see, except the Sentry but that didn't show at all.
