Re: RIAT 2019

standing at the fence with a 600mm lens blocking peoples view who are happy to just sit down and watch all day without a camera then you want to be there at 4am And what's the problem with this? If they're willing to get there at 4am then surely you can't begrudge someone that opportunity. Some peo...

Re: RIAT 2019

Park & View at each end of the runway, East at 27 & West at 09. Get there early, tend to fill up rather quickly. Until Thursday evening, there's absolutely no way of knowing where anything will be parked. Cheers The better half wishes us to arrive at P&V around 9am, is that likely to be...

Re: International Sanicole Airshow, 13 & 15 September 2019

Hoping for some good updates between now and September. The Friday sunset show looks a bit light at the moment. Can't wait to get out to Belgium again this year.

You'd hope so or that'd be a pretty bad booking by the team :facepalm:

Gdynia has its own thread on here already: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=82707 The return of the Fulcrum demo and the addition of the Scandi historics have been known about for some time. So why have they not been announced at the tattoo? If you have an average/local event and THE Event, where do you se...

Re: RIAT 2019

Been debating RIAT with a few of my airshow mates as I have been bashing the updates, or lack of updates. When we looked at it more closely its not actually as bad as I had been thinking. 8 FJ demos(2 x F16, 2 x F18, Harriers, Flanker, Tiff and Gripen) 2 jet display teams(BJT and Reds) 2 prop displa...

Re: RIAT 2019

There are undoubtably one or two star items in the list (Harriers and Su-27). However, the issue from my point of view is that there seems to be a distinct lack of the regulars on the European display scene, in the quantities we have seen in the last few years. Perhaps we have been spoilt. For me, ...

...and Zeltweg 2009 as well, IIRC. I actually didn't mind it: a break from the fast-jet action, something very different and a bit more high-octane than some 'filler' acts. You mean a break from the fast jet....trainers.... I am looking forward to the Tucano, T6 and PC9 special flypast though! Don'...

Re: International Sanicole Airshow, 13 & 15 September 2019

Cant wait to go again this year! Was there in 2017 and unfortunately missed BAF Days last year but Sanicole is such a chilled out weekend compared to the RIAT craziness!!! Great additions and fingers crossed for some more big updates over the next 3-4 months :clap:

Re: RIAT 2019

I too am very glad I haven't dropped any cash yet on RIAT!!

And its nothing against The Blades I like them. I have a feeling this year might be a post RAF100 and Brexit snub year! Filling up the display with more Civil acts.

Fingers crossed for the next 6 weeks :roll:
