Re: RIAT 2020

Well you're not gonna be seeing the Czech Hip at RIAT this year. They declined. Shocked with that one, seems really odd to send everything to Yeovilton and then nothing to RIAT. Was really looking forward to seeing the Hind and Hip as i'm sure there must've been more than just myself thinking that ...

Nice to see the RIAT FB page posting a F22 Raptor video today. Be a great start if that's the first confirmation with them releasing the schedule tomorrow.

Re: CAA - 2020 Rules - Pyro!

Absolute joke, will completely ruin what is becoming a very popular part of the display scene but then what do we expect from the CAA. So far I've not seen or even heard of anything untoward happening in a pyro display.

Onto the display and some great topsides from the T-33, nice and close too. P-47 was ok if you like things d...
