Re: RIAT 2020 - CANCELLED

Silly question really but is the programme cost carried over as well should you decide to keep your tickets for next year?

Re: Aircraft seen randomly at unexpected but most welcome ti

Not the most exiting, Driving along to Limoges Airport, just pulled up and a French Alpha Jet was taking off, also the same weekend, a French E-3 flew over where I was staying.

Re: The FR24/PlanePlotter Thread

Saw three contrails of aircraft high up this morning around 7:20am over Essex. Not sure if they were flying together as too high to see but they seemed very close together. I was driving so didn't get a look but would guess around 30,000ft. anything flying around Essex at that time?

Thanks!

Re: Aircraft seen randomly at unexpected but most welcome ti

A few years ago in Zakynthos I saw a pair of A-7 Corsairs. The only time i ever saw them in the air. :sad:

It was the Saturday the A-10 went tech in 2011. Not seen a full display since Mildenhall? Possibly.

Re: RIAT 2020 Wishlist

I'm hoping for less arguing when the main thread starts to get into the swing of things.

Actually, I will wish for something more realistic, so Iranian F-14 display :biggrin:

Re: RIAT 2020

Great news,

Static or flying? Just Saturday? If it is static I will not be happy as it is called an AIR show and you go to see planes in the air not on the ground. :wink:

Re: 26 years ago today, good bye F-111E's

When I was little I used to visit my Gran in Fringford. They often flew over.

As I got a little older, i asked my mum and dad where they had gone and they said that the F-111's had gone home. I was very sad!

Re: RAF Wymeswold

My Pops has read a lot. He was based when some of what was said. He absolutely loved it. So many many thanks for what you created. It brought back a lot of memories for him.

We went and visited Wymeswold a few months ago. Not a lot left but what was left was really interesting.

Re: RIAT 2019 security

I was in blue on Saturday. I did not get checked, nor did my bag. just walked straight through.

The only thing I had an issue with was the scanner did not work for my programme. I was very disappointed by this as i really wanted to look through all the advertisements :grin:

Re: RIAT 2019

Is the Turkish KC-135 support for the Phantoms or part of the static? I know it isn't down for being on static on the website, but it would be a lovely surprise. I should imagine just support though.
