Re: RIAT 2019

A couple of Friday and Sunday only performers, according to the aircraft list, including the Italian C27J Spartan, T346, RAF Tutor and Tucano. Is that a change or just that we didn't know which days they were displaying before? If the former, then some redress for those going Sunday only, but not g...

Re: RIAT 2019

Shame about the RV-7 (no, really) The background to why it was attending ties directly into the charitable aims of the airshow. It has been/is being built by Grp Cpt Mark Manwaring - the military airshow commentator at RIAT. He will be flying it around the world for the RAFBF in the “Flight of the ...

Is this also the most Avro 504's at one time? Three have been at Shuttleworth but not flown together. The Flying Legends Facebook page seems pretty adamant that the DH-9 will make it's debut at Flying Legends. (They even replied in capital letters that it's debut will be at Flying Legends) Unsure w...

Anyone who bought tickets for Sunday seems to be missing out on quite a lot this year but that's the luck if the draw it seems. What else are we missing out on, apart from the flypast and the Belgian F-16 (which I presume will be replaced by something else for the Sunday to keep the display length ...
