Re: RIAT 2018 discussion

Yawn Seriously? Or are you ing at "yet another F-16 display..."? Good update for sure, SoloTurk is always fun. Is that a debut for a Slovakian Spartan? Edt: based on the above comment from Tommy it must be I guess!! Soloturk had self confirmed so no real update there. The Wedgetail has co...

Re: BAe's Anson to get a RAF repaint

There is also a picture on their Faceache page that shows the horizontal stabilizer has been sprayed silver which would definitely suggest a transport command paint scheme which will look nice!!!

Just doesn't say whether it's WL419 or WA638

Either one would be nice if I'm honest although the dayglow one is very tasty

If said act in question were from Sweden I could understand the scepticism but these 3 are pretty reliable from previous years.

That will be those static ones that have confirmed they are flying then? Grant...

That's 3 Hornet displays & 2 F-16 displays so far.

Where did you get this number from? As far as I make it so far as 2x F-18 (Swiss, Finnish) and 5x F-16 (Belgium, Denmark, Turkey, Greece and Poland). Not complaining though as fast jets are my thing!!!

I suspect he has gone to the great mole-hill in the sky... :sad:

No you are quite right actually. Wonder whether it was just someone who worked in DBH who is no longer there?

Wheres he burrowed to?

Its that time of year again where in years previous we have seen a nice riddle from our good mole friend. Has anyone got any knowledge as to what hole he is burrowed into and if he plans on coming out of hiding any time soon. One of the best bits in a build up to RIAT and like most of the good thing...

Going by the lack of LL pics posted, you'd think there was little going on, but I've heard of multiple F-15 passes through the loop, stuff happening in the lakes, that has never appeared on internet fo...

Re: September Air Show 2017

Thanks Mike. Hadn't realised R4118 had come and gone. Shame but a nice replacement with Biggin's example. It all seems to have gone quiet on the Biggin 109. I'm assuming there's no chance of a last minute addition? Post on here the other day said it was seen on a recent hangar tour without the engi...

Most likely Thursday as they will probably come Tuesday and need a 24hr rest period before flying. Just educated guesses!!!
