Re: RIAT 2022 Discussion Thread

It was embarrassing when the Riat photographers up the big ladder strongly “asked” the Spanish F18 team to move their tables, chairs,and items they were selling so they could get an uncluttered picture. The Spanish were less than happy and only moved when the senior officer told them to. While the ...

The F-35 behind the F-15 was like a looking at a weasel behind a roaring lion.
And let’s remember it will be the 50th anniversary of the F15s first flight in a couple of weeks

Goodness me, this Black Eagles rehearsal so far :open_mouth:
The break and rejoin into that sort of carousel to land is genius and the way they widen the formations by stretching out the gaps rather than adding an aircraft to either side looks effortless.

Blimey the crew must have catapulted what ever was needed, they were gone before the wheels had time to warm up on the tarmac! What was the purpose of the Hungarian A319?

Re: RIAT 2022 Discussion Thread

Another problem - this time for FRIAT e-ticket holders. To get your 'free' daily flying list, a FRIAT benefit, you need a voucher. You can't get a voucher for Wednesday as FRIAT is not open to collect you pass and vouchers. And, for me, who was planning to be in P&V all day, it's not worth a tr...
