Re: Slow, server problems?

Do that with all the categories, less for bots to crawl and therefore less resources used.

Re: Sywell and Breighton Nightshoots

£30 for a nightshoot? That's nice pricing.

I think Breighton is a certainty, see you there mate!

I'm assuming its nonsense, but one of my group chats is going on about how RIAT only have a contract to host RIAT until 2027? They have their future shows listed until 2030 lol.

Where do people come up with this faff
RIAT can only host itself until 2027?

Re: RIAT 2024 - discuss most things thread

As ever, the issue really is one of inflation vs wages.

For the last two years RIAT is the only aviation thing I've done, but I think this year it'll be a year of nothing instead.

I'm not sure, and a follow-up question is when was the last time two airworthy Grumman flying boats were in the UK at the same time?

Goose N4575C arrived today, I believe into Coventry of all places.

It requires 4 engines and must be built on an airframe designed and built in the US. Rather limits the scope of the project.

I still think it’s quite a heavy allegation to make on RIAT to suggest that they artificially limit tickets. There’s no evidence of that whatsoever. Seriously? There's nothing BUT evidence! The fact they've "sold out" yet you can still turn up on the day, buy a ticket, and get in shows qu...

As I’ve said before (and I don’t want to descend the thread again), but this doesn’t make sense to me. If P&V is sold out, then no-one can “panic buy” P&V tickets? Why would they be marketing something they can’t sell? Because as I said before, the panic buying is what sells the tickets out...
