Re: RIAT 2019 security

Happened to me on Sunday. After the body wand scan I was told to put bag on table, and have it opened. Got to the table and the guy just said 'on you go mate' There was one absolute jobsworth in yellow though Saturday morning. A guy behind me took a photo of the Yellow entry arch. A security guard ...

Thanks.

I bet you are, as you said there is always possibilities for getting around the show, even renting a scooter for the day, but if you cant drive then you are a bit snookered

Re: FRIAT packages 2019

Thanks WM and JM, really appreciated (this is why we could do with a like function on here). Historically I've normally entered through green, and last year red which explains my sketchy memory of it. As I'm on the campsite near the red entrance and not rushing to find a space on the rope being in ...

Re: FRIAT packages 2019

Daft question and apologies if already answered elsewhere - do FRIAT passholders have a priority queue? I seem to remember seeing them in the past but can't remember seeing one last year. TIA only at the blue entrance gate, all other routes are just normal entrance gates with no fast track If you a...

Great thanks - I'm assuming it's easy enough to get to the East end on the day? I usually come in on showdays and just get siffoned of to the best car park and walk from there. Is arrivals day any different? depends where you are coming from but for east you want to find your way onto the red route...

Interesting. A special flypast with the Reds and a ‘bigger plane’, which AA is unwilling to talk about or go into more detail on... Reds and B-2? Seems plausible...

Re: RIAT 2019

To be fair, Friday go-ers (myself included) have always been aware that it's a reduced day vs Saturday and Sunday. I like the Fridays as you get time to see and shoot some of the static under less pressure and with less people around, without fear of missing out on flying. I agree that Fridays are ...

To be fair we've dropped (as Mach 2's) down to row K this year (and IIRC our renewal form was numbered in the 300's) which is a big drop as we were row E last year, but if last years main stand layout is anything to go by we've actually got the requested aisle seat so I guess it's where they could ...

that is a big drop, the allocation is normally done on a first come first serve basis so f you picked up a renewal form later on in the weekend it would be a higher number on the rear so in theory lower down the stand
