Re: RIAT 2024 wishlist.

Looking back at the 2019 NATO flypast, we had LN F-15s, Belgian F-16, German A400, German Typhoons, UK Typhoons, French KC135R and a Geilenkirchen E-3A, so I am very curious as of what we could be seeing this edition.

Big if. If Cosford announce Couteau Delta later on, I can't wait for the RIAT meltdown of 'If it's at Cosford why not RIAT' posts.
Well...

Re: RIAT 2024 wishlist.

I'd wish more for those F-16s than the Mirages who are afaik out of service, the Morrocan F-16 paint schemes look terrific!

Also added to the ongoing list is Portugal, Morocco, Indian Air Force + Slovakia (out of my head at least)

Re: FRIAT 2024

Well for a lot more money year on year the package is decidedly getting poorer value for money. Less aircraft to photograph on Monday departures (sign of the times) Worse food Since Friday has become a public day no clear walk around the static on the day before No escorted static walk around on th...

Re: RIAT 2024 wishlist.

Does that mean that Lakenheath has a certified flying display? Would be interesting to see the eagle return to the airshow world in such a form as this

Re: RIAT 2024 - discuss most things thread

Starting this week's update with our loyal friends in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. A RIAT tradition, we will have the excellent Royal Jordanian Falcons performing in the flying display with their Extra 330LX aircraft. In addition, we'll be welcoming one of their Hercules for static display. Of n...

Re: RIAT 2024 - discuss most things thread

Quite disappointed about that to be honest. Although I am beyond happy with the Pat suisse, I love hornets and I was really hoping for them to be at RIAT this year. Is this schedule final? I suspect as due to the existing financial issues within the Swiss structures that yes, this is the final sche...

Re: RIAT 2024 wishlist.

With the Kaan now flying, Turkey ongoing and the 'Pushing the Boundaries' theme, it would be nice to see one in the flying display. Big wish, I know. Or preferably they could bring something altogether better like F-4s, F-5s, F-16s, T-38s, E-7, C-130, C-160, Gulfstream, CN235, KC-135, Citation, SF-...

Re: RIAT 2024 - discuss most things thread

Is one of the German Tonkas going to be the specially painted 50th Anniv jet? The mentioned Tornados are from TLG51 (Tiger) and WTD61 (Test). The 50 anniversary Tornado is with TLG 33. The only active WTD61 IDS I can find is the 98+59, not sure if you want to count this as special livery but I pers...

Always nice to see the CH-53G but would have been happier if they brought along the Tiger :-)
Tiger falls under the German Army, and as said multiple times on this forum they cannot cross the channel on their own, would be a large effort to get one over.

Re: RIAT 2024 wishlist.

To be fair, I'd be happy with literally anything from Bulgaria, tho I prefer a AS532AL, SU-25 or MIG29 over a C-27J

Re: RIAT 2024 - discuss most things thread

The update also highlighted a planned Friday Flypast for the E-3 before it joins the static lineup so hopefully this means we could get a special Nato 75th flypast Even more, it highlights more updates of said flypast will be given in the upcoming months! Also want to highlight that we have two fir...
