I see it's being billed as the Royal Navy International Air Day, I'll therefore ask a really stupid question, is it actually being held at Yeovilton? :cuppa:

Only I heard a whisper, or read somewhere, about Yeovilton getting a runway resurfacing or something such nonsense? Therefore, Culdrose? :wink:

Email, received this morning, states the Air Day is being held at RNAS Yeovilton in 2019.

I mean, it's already pretty much right up there on that front, so they must be really bold!

Seeing as Culdrose airdays seem to have been all but abandoned (a most unfortunate and regrettable change in policy) perhaps the overall title of this thread should change?

Good grief, trying to become the excellent airshow it was from the 70s to the 90s, what a crazy idea! :dizzy:

Can they not see the market leader that Farnborough is and go for the seaside line up at £50 a head, huge gaps in the display and shuttle buses in. Fools.

Not sure if Yeovilton/RNIAD do themes, but a '100 years of Eric Brown' event featuring aircraft that he flew would offer an interesting and diverse Navy-heavy display which charts some quite considerable evolutionary jumps in aviation history. Looking through the rather expansive list, there's plenty to choose from and quite a number of said aircraft are either quite achievable or already on the display circuit, so not in the realms of fantasy.

That said, I'm fully expecting the National Air and Space Museum's Arado 234B to be on static display :grin:

Or, put more simply, 'aircraft'...

I went to Yeovilton this year for the first time in quite a few years. Have to say that I was really quite disappointed, it was not the show of fond memory. I won't be going again.

I went for the first time this year (regular RIAT attendee) and for £20 odd thought it was an excellent show!

That's interesting Alex. I haven't been to Yeovilton for years and years, mainly because of the fixture congestion at that time of year if I'm honest, but looking at it from afar it looks very appealing, with strong line ups. In what way were you disappointed?

Your expectations are too high if this was the case.

Went for the first time this year and had a great day. 300 mile round trip too. The weather definitely helped but thought it was a great day.

Tickets have gone on sale today. It is interesting that they have divided the grandstand into two separate sections. The upper rows are for photographers only and this is still called the Lynx enclosure. The lower rows are for non photographers and this is now Wessex enclosure.

Lynx is half photographer and half non photographer. Wessex is a separate enclosure.

It's a good idea, however, is it really fair to charge an extra £5 for having a telephoto lens? I accept that you're sat a fraction higher up the stand in the photographers section, but I can't think of any other stand that has higher prices the higher the row you get. At one point it's about 1 foot higher and 2 foot further back for £5. Maybe all rows should increment 50p from the lowest row.
