Re: CVN-77 embark for Chesapeake 2018 with French Rafales

Wonderful set! Can’t deny that I am a tad jealous though (don’t think I’m the only one :wink:)! How did you get about this opportunity, if I may ask?

Re: Belgian Air Force Days 2018 - 8th/9th Sept

How much of a struggle is it to make decent static shots at KB? Looks really crowded on most photo’s I see

@Chrisse, have you got any information on whether or not the KC-135 from Andrews AFB will be at the show both days? Thanks in advance! Very excited about the line-up btw :rock:

High on my list as well, especially the one with the 2016 tigermeet scheme :love:

Re: RIAT 2018 discussion

In defence of RIAT they have managed to get virtually all fast jet displays that are on the European circuit this year (if the SU-27 confirms again)plus 2 from North America,quite an achievement! . I agree with what you’re saying, I look at this forum quite frequently and I must say that a lot of t...

Re: RIAT 2018 discussion

That is a very good update! It’s nice to see the RAF sending so many different types of aircraft for their birthday!
Very unfortunate that the French Pumas have cancelled, was looking forward to seeing them. Good thursday nonetheless! :clap:

Re: RIAT 2018 discussion

There has been no Dutch F-16 display on the circuit for several years now, and there are no plans for it to return, so that's a definite no. Not sure whether the Apache is displaying this year though, somebody will know. RNLAF haven't supported an Apache solo display for a number of years now so I ...

Maybe the same one as in 2016, Miss Helen - providing it's OK to fly (this year) after the minor September incident? Presuambly, there's only a select number that are signed off to be part of the HF anyway and that particular airframe would be the obvious choice, one would think. What about Big Bea...

Looking forward to seeing the Finnish NH-90’s with their beautiful colour scheme. Would be nice to see the finnish air force joining their army friends with an F/A-18D! Love the look of the two seater.... :heyhey:

No, I think the next update will be somewhere at the end of February, judging by last year’s announcements...

Re: RIAT 2017 (Discussion & Participation Thread)

Great to see some support from the RNLAF! I must admit that it is not the smartest of things not to confirm the SU-27, but what I think is that they'll announce it on sunday as a stand alone update. But who am I to know :whistle: Great update anyway

Huge bummer that PAF and RomAF have decided not to attend. Good static update from the RAF though. I agree that we need another 'big/exciting update'. So Tom, do you have something up your sleeve? Can you give us a little insight maybe? :heyhey:

Hahah unfortunately I'm not an insider, but fun fact is that there is an illustration of an F-35 and B-2 on the e-ticket... So it might be better we ask that question to someone else on this forum (Tom) cough* cough* ;)
