I will certainly be there, alive or half dead.

Planning to go on ALL MAKS days for 2021 air show!

I know it's early...just looking to talk about something positive. :)

Re: RIAT 2020

I will once again stress to all of you doomsayers that there’s not a single person in this thread that hasn’t already come to terms with the fact that it is, at the VERY least, a reasonable thought that it won’t happen. What I’m saying has nothing to do with whether or not it will happen, and everyt...

Re: RIAT 2020

I do see your point of view too, I’m just soaking up so much catastrophic information here at work from the govt department I work for that I’m feeling overwhelmed. Maybe I’ve got it wrong, but my views are very much rooted in the current planning assumptions. I guess I’m also angry with RIAT as th...

Re: RIAT 2020

I can see that you’re not going to see sense easily! If you don't think that acknowledging that there's a problem, but that there's no real information to support that the airshow WILL be cancelled is a reasonable response, then I don't think it's me that's having trouble seeing sense. I live in a ...

Can the fear mongering be taken to the COVID-19 thread? We can all look up cancellation policies as necessary, it doesn’t need to be in this thread. Fear mongering!

MAKS 2021

Well, too much doom and gloom going on on here right now. I was cruising the website of MAKS and found that it is currently listing a count down of 487 days from now, which would be July 19th, 2021. Would be a logical date as it would once again be the week following Air Tattoo 2021. I have seen a f...

Every year when we go to daylight savings time I forget that the updates are now an hour later in our time and have a moment of concern when the update hasn't come out yet at 0500 our time.

Testing response times most likely? They do it to all their neighbouring air spaces, we intercept them north of Canadian air space fairly often, and the US does it off Alaska fairly regularly.

Re: RIAT 2020

Any jet in the flying display from France will be most welcome! I wonder if Couteau Delta are back on the scene? As for the B1, a simple take off still stands out as one of my favourite airshow moments. As a 10 year old kid having never seen one before, I thought it would sound like a passenger air...

Anybody know if we can expect to see something from France this year? A Rafale pair would be lovely. France could send over the Rafale solo or the new tactical demo which consists of two Rafales which has replaced Couteau Delta. Are you talking about the pair of Rafale M? Because that didn’t replac...

I know that it doesn't mean they will fly the couple miles over, but the Czechs just confirmed some great participation at Yeovilton. Two flying helicopters (MI-24, MI-35), Gripen, and 2 X L-159 all flying, and a C-295 for static.

Not sure why this conversation about politics is in a thread about an airshow.
