Re: Russian bombers

I've been meaning to watch that show actually, with English subtitles obviously. Looks like good enough footage.

Re: RIAT 2022 Discussion Thread

Well, some would say, myself included, that I've long lost the right to take a moral stance on anything considering some of the places I've been in the pursuit of aviation, and even this year I haven't really stuck to my principles very much. In 2020 I was very disappointed to have a spotting trip t...

My biggest concern is being sat next to the same a***holes from 2019. It was a family of three who seemed to have little interest in the show beyond slagging off the Americans.

Re: RIAT 2022 Discussion Thread

Since 2014 Qatar has made their debut as well. It may have been "bigger news" than those, but not as far as the narrative of the review went. The story of the review was marking the improvements and return of the show over 2019, not just a list of facts and figures about it. It may have be...

Re: RIAT 2022 Discussion Thread

Yes, but on its own isn't anything enormous (as in, nation numbers consistently go up) and wasn't really anywhere in the narrative to fit it in.

It's the one we've all been waiting for - our episode reflecting on RIAT. We look at our highlights, discuss how good it felt to be back and chat about that vibe RIAT has.

Re: RIAT 2023 Car Passes

They ask you to select how many car park passes you need when buying the tickets. You can choose between zero and one. This is what the website says about more than one: "Those requiring parking MUST add a pass from the dropdown. Additional passes can be requested from customer services."...

Re: Black Eagles question……

They were very very good - second to the Frecce IMHO, but in front of the Reds Agreed with this. I thought the Frecce were a bit better and a bit tighter in parts. Quite a lot of the Black Eagles' manoeuvres are very similar at best to many we see from the Reds and PdF (in fact, I think they litera...

Re: RIAT 2022 Feedback and thoughts

I’d love to see a return of the arrivals days where things were allowed to properly bash the circuit for a little bit. It was great to see the Swedes have a missed approach each, but the majority of the circuits/approaches appeared to be no less than 500ft. Take me back to Turkish F-5 and Hellenic ...

Re: RIAT ATC

One question I had was why does everything need a follow me car even for the shortest distances? Down at the western end we were puzzled why pilots that had just taxied in from a runway would later on need a car to lead them to and from a parking spot a few metres from it.

Re: RIAT 2022 Discussion Thread

Someone mentioned earlier that they had been told by stateside aircrew that the B52s were cancelled due to politics. I can go for that. Two heavy bombers being deployed to a forward operating location is prime fodder for Russian propaganda. It could not only result in some form of action towards ne...
