Re: RIAT 2024 - discuss most things thread

Seems like this all came about with the Biden administration , prior to this it seemed business as usual.. Strange thing is that USAF demo teams still attend other overseas shows, example Avalon last year had the C17 and Raptor demos! Well I suppose that means we must hope he loses in November then...

Even though I’m a FRIAT member I don’t seem to have got this email. Would anyone be so kind to send it over to me if I DM you my address please?

Getting in was great. In car park at 7.45 and through into show by 8.30. RIAT take note this is how you get people in to a show

Re: Belgian Air Force Days 2023 - Kleine-Brogel Airbase

Had an email response from them stating you can take more than one bottle in with you, they didn’t say how many you could take in though.

Think I may be freezing down a couple of bottles the night before, going to be a warm one but give me that over the weather at RIAT this year!!!

Really? You couldn't scroll to the map to see the only location on there is Temecula?
Unless I’m looking at a different page I’m not seeing a map, that’s my point. Sorry if you thought I couldn’t scroll to a map I couldn’t see :joy:

...Jetstream, what a great display from a rarely seen type these day’s. I doubt there has been a Jetstream display anywhere since the last Royal Navy ones were retired close to a decade ago now, and I doubt there will ever be another one as the Cranfield example is due for retirement this year.

Re: Sunday 2 August – Drive-in Airshow (At the Movies)

Is the concept of a DRIVE-IN airshow really so hard to grasp? Let me help you with that. You drive in. In a car. Then you are confined to a marked area beside your car, apart from access to toilets and a takeaway food and drink selling area. You don’t wander in randomly through the front gate on fo...

OK,so what happens if you do not own a car,access denied,even if you have purchased a ticket on line,social discrimination?

Well first time to Shuttleworth today and what a great venue that is. Don’t know why it’s taken me so long to get there. When that sun came through this evening there was some amazing light on those wonderfully kept aircraft. Even half way back in zone B most of the displays felt close to you which ...

Re: First Show on July 18

Yes, the bend is around the control tower, so ideally that's the end to be at. I guess it'll be luck of the draw where they park you on the day though. Any chance of sharing the layout image please?

Re: First Show on July 18

I have an image showing the layout of how the show ground will look and they have split the parking into 3 zones. A being closest to control tower and C further away. Having never been to OW before is the control tower the end considered to be the “bend”?

Think I will hold off on getting tickets for this one until I see how it goes next weekend and we also get a list of what’s going to be there. Numbers are very limited and the last one sold out within a few days, so be aware you run the risk of not getting a ticket if you leave it too long. Totally...
