Re: RIAT 2020

No snowbirds either Snowbirds don't have the range to come to the UK. If the range of the CT-114 is 944 miles, which apparently it is, then they could get from Narsarsuaq to Reykjavik (770 miles) and then from Reykjavik to Prestwick (842 miles). Assuming they can fly from somewhere in Canada to Nar...

Re: Bournemouth Air Festival 2019

I've always like going on the pier at Bournemouth. It's at the end of the display line, but you still get to see everything close up and the sun is more at your side than in your face as the afternoon wears on. So where is display centre - is it east of the pier Display centre is halfway between Bo...

Very smart. Before RIAT 2019, the Friday was a lot cheaper. If anything the £5 discount is not a good will offer at all but more a case of reverting back to cheaper ticket prices (they won't make a loss as they'd still make the same amount as they would have in 2018) and marketing it as discount (p...

Re: RIAT 2019

IIRC the 9-ship manoeuvre requires aircraft coming from crowd rear. That requires special dispensation under the regs which (IIRC) can only be given to UK teams and then only 2 or 3 hold this including the Reds, BBMF and (I think) the Blades. The special dispensation must have also been given to th...

Slightly Stranger question- Cast your minds back a year ago to the Friday and the Flanker demo in particular-- THAT super sketchy low pass, did anything ever come of that, or any reasoning as to why it was what it was, just looking through last years photos and thought I'd ask. Yes, they didn't do ...

B-2 would be excellent, absolutely nothing else like it and to think we’ve had one in the flying for the past 2 years in a row is ridiculous. Fingers crossed if it comes to fruition it isn’t held over Brize for 15 mins for something mundane to go on too long, and we get something like 2017’s appear...

Re: New RAFCTE (RIAT) CEO announced.

Can we just acknowledge the fact that when Andy Armstrong was announced as the new CEO of RIAT (in 2013???), there were people on here saying it would be a disaster for the show. I would say that under his stewardship, 2014-2018 (and probably this year) were some of the best RIATs since I started at...
