Re: RIAT 2020

There was a comment on the A10 demo teams post the other day, still trying to find it, but there was someone saying 'come to the UK' you know the usual. And they liked the comment and responded with a wink face. Hope so as they have P-51 scheme for next year But don't the A-10 demo, and other US te...

Re: RIAT 2019 - Issues

Am I the only one who'll admit to enjoying both the Blades display and their flypast with the A400M? It was a change from the usual jet displays, not to mention the amusing commentary ( although it wasn't supposed to be ) I've always thought the blades were good but did have reservations about them...

An USAF WC-135W Constant Phoenix Nuclear Sniffer flew from the states and into RAF Mildenhall yesterday. Maybe they'd like to pop over to Fairford for the weekend? :smile:

Re: RIAT 2019

With the email of the 19th June stating "Where else can you see military aircraft from nearly 30 different nations at one event?", and the count of confirmed nations at the moment, as I see it, being 24, I wonder what other countries are to be added? France? Poland? ?

Looks as though the SwAFHF aircraft are now allowed to display in the UK again? The Draken is making its debut at Bournemouth Air Fest. I wonder if they now might make RIAT?

I wonder if the Finnish Air Force will send something nice, like the F-18 solo display next year? After all, they're celebrating their centenary as well.

Still waiting here as well. Getting a bit concerned as the payments are suppose to start in October. Thinking I might leave it till the weekend and then contact them early next week if I don't hear anything. I thought they said that they would be sending emails this year?
