Re: Cracking Cazaux 2005

Thanks for the great memories

That was a superb show! 15 years ago!!!
Also great show for numbercrunchers with hangars packed with alpha jets and A-4s.😁

Lost my sunglasses at the show.😎

Re: RIAT 2019

The static has just one (1) RAF fighter. A single 9 Sqn Typhoon. That must be an all time low. (Only one step from the lowest possible ) Indeed, this (IMO) is a very poor commitment from the RAF. Operational requirements or not, there are 2 (I think) Typhoon units deployed out of 8 (soon to be 9). ...

Re: RIAT 2019

Today the last big Thursday update....

Thought:
Back in the days. USAF deployment units showed up a lot of times at IAT/RIAT. At the moment at least two hang around Spangdahlem and one in Romania. Would be nice if something showed up from there. (Oh.. this is wishlist material).

Re: RIAT 2019

The Hellenic A-7 single-seater received special marks to signal their RIAT attendance (and a sort of “clean” repaint on the twin-stick), and their their F-4s has special RIAT marks in 2016/17. I also *think* a Luftwaffe A310 received some special stencils on the door one year, but had to depart on ...

Hi

Could be anything but it says mostly something about her leadership, not that she did anything else wrong.

Re: London Flypast 10 July - up to 100 aircraft

What would be the best spot outside the M25, somewhere near Brentwood?
or is the gamble to big being on the right spot or are the aircraft to high?

Re: Finland - Ilmavoimat 100- Tikkakoski

Nice shots. I do like that Hawk. Is it a special scheme or always like that do you know? It's one of the ex Swiss ones upgraded with a glass cockpit. They got 18 and have kept those colours. Bit like our old Hawk scheme. Hi I noticed that they even kept the rescue triangles (what are they called?) ...

12 hours! The airshow has to start very early.
Last year around 19.00-19.30 hours it became dark! Or a partly sunset show! :rock:

Oh maybe, then. I don't know. It's all second hand, and capable of being lost in translation. At any rate, there was a different one there at least. (also, I'd love to see the display flown in the twin-stick. Looks-wise, two seat Flankers > single seaters.) Same single seat as per RIAT 2017 (58) wh...

They’ll send the same IL-76 as they did to Denmark i’m assuming, which does have a nice splash of colour to it! Is it the same one they sent to RIAT or a different one? Can't seem to find pictures of it. Tom It's different. It was 76413 with blue/yellow cheatline at Aalborg Don't know if they sent ...

Your right. :surrender:
That is what you get when checking pictures on a mobile Phone (and having some dreams).
On desktop it is cleary Jordanian.

There is no Swedish flag either (after their short lived announcement from 2 weeks ago).
