Less cancellations!!! :-)


F-35 - Why is it a dream? Won't we have a few over here soon anyway? Surely as it has courted so much controversy, via delays and cost, etc. they are going to want to show it off. Isn't that kind of one of the points of military aircraft appearing at shows. 'Look at this great plane we've spent your money on, don't you feel safe now'.


I had a theory about the F-35, and past new hi tech US aircraft, the other day. As most of these aircraft never really see combat against 'like for like' aircraft then they are really just like nuclear weapons. They are so expensive and advanced we, the public, and other countries, presume they are the best so they are a deterrent in themselves. I mean how good was the stealth fighter? Was it half looks?

The stealth fighter wasn't a fighter, however, despite it's bizarre designation. And it was pretty successful in ground attack.

I also don't think a deterrent is a bad idea. Better that than a long, bloody war (or worse, a very, very quick one)

Personally I want to see helicopters from France, Holland, germany etc and a Polish SH-2. I also love to see the French here in force again with Rafales and E-2. Also would love to see the static full of Lynx,Wildcats, Seakings and Merlins rather than the based light aircraft, i.e every navy aircraft on base in static.However as it is no longer a navy organized display it does not seem to have the same clout as it used to.

Its the Navy! They like to show off the Navy in its air-arm role and don't like Joe Public seeing too much airforce stuff. I would chose one from that list and accept Yeovilton is more Navy Days than RIAT. I was told by a senior Navy officer about 4 years ago that Joe Public doesn't realise we have aircraft and its not good for recruitment. :lmao:

I would genuinely pass out with excitement if that was the case. Hopefully Yeovilton should be making some announcements though this week. So who knows!

Is this what you are hoping for or are Yeovilton looking at releasing some participants this week?

I assume that Yeovilton will release some participants this week as they usually do at this stage of the year. Originally it was just my wishlist.
