I find that if you want to see something on static flying, get yourself to one of the arrival days (I know the B-52 is coming earlier than normal) or the departure day. Problem solved.
It's easy leading a life leisure isn't it?
Problem not solved. Some people can't, due to having jobs Monday to Friday and having restrictions etc on holiday and leave and when they can/can't take it. Its not going to change the USAF/DoD decision, but certainly not as easy as "problem solved".
Yes, but if they cannot go anyway due to work commitments, why whinge about it being in the static? Like you said, it isn't going to reverse the decision the guys sending it over have made if little Timmy wants it flying.
NEWS: This week, the Air Ops department took a call from the French Navy who informed us that regrettably they could no longer send a Super Etendard to participate in the flying display. Rather than cancel altogether, we invited the French Navy the opportunity to display the aircraft in our static park instead – an offer which they accepted.
