Re: RIAT 2021 Participation and Discussion Thread

Re: RIAT 2021 Participation and Discussion Thread

Awesome! Didn’t think we’d get to see one again after the 2011 appearance (I went Saturday only when it went tech a short while after running in) - everything crossed the event can go ahead!!

Hopefully that lovely heritage-schemed jet will make the trip.

Why have the real thing to show to the public when you can have a cardboard cutout, dodgey voice actin...

Re: Reds & Patrouille over Heathrow

Are the Reds currently at home and practicing at Scampton?

Thinking about a trip up tomorrow but can’t find much online.

Appreciate these NOTAMs have been issued but I must say I’m not particularly au fait with them.

Absolute nonsense.
