Fleet Air Arm Museum is closed.

Re: RIAT 2019 - Issues

When the A400M came over with those four other little planes (yes I know blades) I didn't even bother picking my camera up or watching them come over - I was more interested in watching a butterfly on the grass flying about - I think that sums them up. Bit harsh! But they could have done more than ...

Re: RIAT 2019 - Issues

Have to say that I enjoyed the flying program, shame about Friday but we got an E-3A flypast so it wasn't all bad. Kudos to the A400M display team for stepping up when it seemed that nothing was going to be flying. On Saturday and Sunday the highlights for me were the Mig-21 and Flanker, F-18's wer...

Re: Royal Navy International Air Day 2019

Hoping to get to this airshow this year for the first time. Does your ticket include entry to the FAA Museum and is it easily accessible from the public/parking area? No, but when I’ve booked in advance, I’ve received a 50% discount voucher towards the museum entrance fee. The museum itself is righ...

Anybody gone to Weston on this lovely sunny day ? They dont seem to have a Typhoon which they have had previously, but they do have the red Arrows as usual . Reasonable afternoons flying given that it’s a free show. Good turnout with the weather being favourable although photography difficult as th...

Re: FRIAT packages 2019

Quick question for previous FRIATters, how do you get those FRIAT lanyards to hold your passes in? They look nice and substantial compared to that little chain they send out each year. I remember seeing a few people with them, but wasn't sure how you got them as they weren't on the souvenir stand.

Just another for my wish list.................. how about the Czech (i think it was) Hind Display team? For those that dont know i think i saw them last at RIAT around 1996, and the display consisted of 3 Hinds doing their thing. I'd love to see this, there was a single Hind in 2015 which was great...
