Re: FRIAT Stand Location 2025

Once again we are paying for a premium product the fact that the grandstand is being set back with the public in between does not enhance the quality of the product . Watching and applauding the crews film and visit the area is now gone.

Re: RIAT 2024 - discuss most things thread

Seems like a few people here don't have a concept of the passage of time! Just because something is known in this moment doesn't mean it has been known forever... That’s it- start on the Ukar members who find your tone and attitude, particularly as a Ukar official, towards professionals voluntarily...

The whole Polish Air Force is currently mourning the accident so attending any airshow by any asset would be distasteful.
I get that but an slightly surprised there would be no representation in marking NATO 75th

Re: FRIAT 2024

Ok it is a pedantic point but the above two posts mention things being a 'perk' - a perk is something extra to what you would normally have. We have paid for FRIAT with its associated benefits - they are not perks or extras or freebies they have been paid for!

Re: FRIAT Stand Location 2025

It's really cynical timing, just like the package changes just after the E-4 announcement. Who's betting there's something tomorrow to try & distract from it? 🤔 With this, the awful sounding security guff, & the Blue Entrance perk removed I actually go into the event now not expecting to en...

Re: FRIAT Stand Location 2025

I agree there is PR drivel and a better explanation of what will happen is needed but there is never a good time for this sort of news. After the show in a few months time when maybe some have renewed and it will create more negative feeling than ever. At least it is out in the open and if you don't...

There's plenty of folks on this forum who go in the Viewing Village grandstand - does it really make that much difference being a little further back?
Not that much - what people pay FRIAT for is departures day in the enclosure - if that goes so does FRIAT

Re: FRIAT Stand Location 2025

I think its people not in FRIAT that may have to worry? From the first read, everyone has a seat in the stand and a designated place on the crowdline they can move freely between? How much space do 2000 people take up on the crowdline? Or am I misreading that? Or is it just a standard line length a...

Nah, that's reserved now for the Centre Enclosure - a premium product for you and your guests so don't forget: 'Be at the Centre' in 2025.

Re: Sywell Air Show 2024 Movie

Commercial movie length average has increased a lot in the last year - go with the trend - don't pander to the goldfish (but it does not have to be 143mins!). You say you are trying to tell a story so tell it - maybe you are trying to please everyone which will never work.

Re: Sywell Air Show 2024 Movie

I find some of the cuts too fast. It does not have to be 2:17 for me - it can be up to five minutes. You just start enjoying a bit and bang it's gone. Different if it is for a trailer but it is meant to be a mini movie. Other gripe would be fast cuts when the action is left to right into the next wh...
