Typhoon and Voyager over Jordan on FR now

Surprised the EUFI ZK344 shows up that far out unless someone is inputting into FR. Looks heading to Syria with ZZ337. Don't they always fly in pairs?

Manchester viewing park

Why isn't this open? It's open air! All it needs is someone taking card payment on way out as usual, by all means keep the shops closed etc. That said free south side with sun behind has better views of runway now tbh.

Re: Possible format for RIAT2021

Im hearing its been canned. Too much risk to plan this far out. Not personally sure if it will ever return. Time to start moving to other/new hobbies I think.

Re: RIAT 2021 Participation and Discussion Thread

I see two big festivals have now been announced for August. Was there really no merit in the organisers waiting until after the PM announcement (a mere week later) and then making a call? Could it really not have been moved to end of August to give some leeway?

Re: RIAT 2021 Participation and Discussion Thread

On another positive note the second test in India has fans in the stadium which tells me things are moving forward in the right direction for RIAT to get the go ahead all we need is for the fellow enthusiasts on here to keep the faith and keep positive that things are on their way up.

Re: RIAT 2020 - CANCELLED

What's the chances of no early discount tickets being available 2021 because all that got them this year carried them over. Pondering whether to cash in now and risk that come January.

2020 tickets

Are the Saturday tickets likely to see a discounted price at some point? I thought I saw early bird a while back but now see only Fri and Sun are discounted. Will Saturday stay at £59 now right through to July?

Re: Red route shambles - came home.

I regularly see coaches go past our campsite arriving from the west so suspect the only dedicated route is for shuttles. Even so 0730 from Birmingham is a bit late to set off if someone wants to walk all the static before sitting down.

Re: Red route shambles - came home.

We are travelling by coach on the Sunday the coach does not leave dudley until half 7. I am hoping there is a dedicated coach route and entrance so we don't miss to much. Reading this I am getting more and more nervous. There are no coach routes and quite simply you will not get in until gone 1130 ...

Re: Structure of RAF and FAA circa 1987

It wouldn't play ball in the copy and paste no matter what I tried. But I hope this forum is frequented by sufficient IQ to realise the Buccs first entry would be 1981 and not the last 3 years. Also working back from 2014 on the Sentries means none in 81.

In discussion with landowners for the masses wanting to see what exactly? They fly at Fairford now each year, it's just a grey plane in a grey sky. Bizarre. Of far more interest is a last look at a Tornado live.
