Re: RIAT 2020 - CANCELLED

Has anybody not had the email yet - apart from me? I went for Mach 1 for 2020 so might be down the list. I haven’t received an email either (not that it matters to me because I’m rolling over). They’ve even made another post on FB this morning saying everyone should have an email. If anyone wants a...

Re: RIAT 2020 - CANCELLED

Credit where credit is due, they’ve handled this whole situation brilliantly IMHO :clap: The choice to carry over your grandstand seat for next year was the deciding factor for me to roll over the payment. Here’s hoping the big 5-0 next year will be one to remember!

Re: RIAT 2020 - CANCELLED

I wonder if seat requests etc will be carried over to next year? As in FRIAT? I think it would be fair to assume that the full state of affairs from this year would be carried over lock stock and barrel to next year. Its the easiest way, effectively a 12 month postponement. So in that case the answ...

I just edited my post above to include it, but yes. Either full refund or potentially forward payment to 2021. More info in new few weeks.

Re: RIAT 2020 - CANCELLED

It’s the right decision, no one can argue that. But man it’s disappointing. Going to leave a big hole in a lot of peoples summers There is also a FAQ page on the website.

Not a blow your socks off type update but nothing to grumble about there. Been a few years since we last saw a Wildcat flying and it’s a nice bulking up of the static :up:

So what is still available from the States that could be present at Fairford this year? F35A Demo Team and the A10c Thunderbolt II/Warthog Demo Depends if he means flying or static. Could be F-15, B-1b, B-52, C-130, P-8, Osprey for static display, a few other contenders too. Osprey flying is probab...

Thank you for the kind words on previous pages.

How is this not an update? All updates are hopeful until the aircraft arrives (and even then they sometimes leave anyway, as we have been discussing). And when was the last time there was an RAF P-8 at RIAT? Exactly - so it will be a UK airshow debut, no? unless Cosford or Yeovilton sneak one in Th...

So to summarise:

“We know traffic has been an issue in the past, so to improve that we are increasing the size of the red car park to allow more people to attend the show”. :dizzy:

I’d like to see the Gripen E, preferably with their newly realised splinter camo. Don’t think its too far fetched considering it’s a Farnborough year too.

Not getting the E-Tickets until 2 weeks before the show is a very good move IMHO. Stops anyone buying bulk now and selling them closer to the show. Have the Saturday tickets already gone up? Marked as current price £54 and full price £59. Sunday at £49 Smart business move TBH. Saturday always sells ...
