Re: RIAT 2019 wish list

as an example - would you pay to go to Wimbledon if it cost you Alot of money and effort to go and see (lets say for sake of argument - two not very good tenis players) would you expect and hope to see somebody better and more interesting in turn for your money. If the not so good players have come...

Re: RIAT 2019

When there was a discussion about the artwork someone shot me down because I liked it, stating that Tempest that was on the artwork couldn't be at the show (for who is interested, I still think this year's artwork is the best since Wilf Hardy stopped doing them).

Re: Departures - Monday 22nd

I've only started doing the arrivals for the past two years so dont have much to compare it to but the Dutch Herc in 2017 was bloody brilliant and the Ukranians formation arrival is excellent aswell. I referred to that dutch arrival as a "The winner of the 'the reason we don't have an award fo...

They will be announcing it closer to the show, they have said. As there haven't said yet that the super-early birds are close to sell out, I expect them to be still around when the flying is announced.

Re: RIAT 2019

Has been going on for years.

RIAT announces star items, then shows one week earlier hop on the band wagon and get those too. Both Yeovilton and Waddington have done this in the past. Also items for Farnborough have visited RIAT before that overcharged trade event.

Re: Fairford NOTAM

Reminds me of an old story about a young over-selfconfident F-16 pilot, that just joined his first front line squadron. He intercepted a B-52 and was trashtalking to the bomber-crew that whatever they would do, he could do better. The BUFF men said "OK, let's see". And the two aircraft rem...

A few remarks about the first day: The NATO E-3A was there at the static taking in guided tours for the public, and it looked like it was closed in by the A330 MRTT, so it should also be there tomorrow, Mr. C.
