Re: RIAT 2011 Participation Discussion

This thread sums up what is so wrong with the aviation enthusiast community at the moment. Complaints that RIAT doesn't attract the "good stuff". Ukrainian Su-27 and IL-76 added to static. Complaints that it's static only, not flying. Complaints money should have been spent elsewhere. You...
