Well done Sweden! Two very rare ISR appearances! No Gripen currently, but those two are stunning!

Re: RIAT 2020

Danish F-16 Demo is a very positive start. With the inclusion of the Challenger, it’s good to see the themes being followed.

Re: RIAT 2020

I hope that this doesn’t take the wind out of the sails of today’s update, but an MFG Sea Lynx and P-3 are pencilled: http://twitter.com/cdrdeunavalair/status/1225314518596816898 The Orion is a beast of a machine, always one of my favourites on arrivals.

Re: RIAT 2020

Thank you for the kind words on previous pages. I have been lucky to have had an excellent handover period with Tom, and the awesome Air Operations team have been doing a stellar job over the last few months preparing for RIAT 2020. This year's themes give us two exciting areas of military aviation...

P-8 could be classed as officially confirmed now after last week’s shenanigans, no more “hopefully”.

Re: RIAT 2020

Re: RIAT 2020

Does RIAT ever get listed in the schedule release in December anyway? I only ever remember the Thunderbirds confirming for 2017 on their schedule launch. This year the F16 was scheduled elsewhere and ended up at RIAT. Blue Angels have a gap in 2020 but we all know not to look too much into those th...

RIAT 2019- First DSLR Trip

Hi! Photos from my three day stint in the Cotswolds. First time using a DSLR setup after several years of using a bridge camera. Pleased with the results thus far. More will be added as and when they are edited. As usual, any comments are welcome. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48358916756_4678...

Re: RIAT 2019

Really? The reason why he stood down as display pilot was because he was retiring from the Air Force. Could well be another reason, but the same guy that does the patches for the display team says that he will be participating. Could well be that it is in some other form, so I hereby change my comm...

A new display pilot too, one Yuriy Bulavka. The previous pilot Alexander Oksanchenko is also believed to be taking part in some form or another. The static jet is now confirmed as once again being BLUE 71.
