Re: RIAT 2013

Excited for those Italian Tiffies. If the Hungarians bring a static Gripen we could have quite the nice line up of deltas! The Swiss beech 1900 looks very nice too. Hawk T2 is nice too, haven't seen that version yet. Not what I think we were all expecting (with regards to Rafale and PdF), but a nice...

Re: RIAT 2013

I'd love to see an operational U-2. If it was coming in I'd definitely make the trip to see the arrivals.

I love the idea that the US crews will be happy to oblige RIAT with their aircraft for the sneaky weekend. Having been the last couple of years it does seem that the US military likes the show.

Just what I was going to say Dan. Maybe the confirmation only came in today!


Yep, that's fair enough and I could believe that it was very nice timing for them to announce it this way!

Not meaning to be negative but does anyone else think the awesome surprise addition of the Red Bull P38 and Corsair would have been a 'better' Moley clue?

Re: RIAT 2013

Absolutely agree, great surprise for this evening! Two iconic aircraft that I've never seen before, and they'll be flying no less, thank you DBH!

Now to see the moaners complaining about the Red Bull splashed across them and how it'll absolutely ruin the whole weekend. Or something.

Re: RIAT: Future Dates - Up To 2020

Wonder what they can do for the Air Cadets 75th that would be special. And that isn't just Tutors... It'd be nice if they took a bit of a broader look and attracted European trainers in order to celebrate the Air Cadets 75th. Portugese Alpha Jets, Austrian J105s, French Epsilons, Italian SF260s, Sw...

Stab in the dark here but: If it is not coming from the east end, it would come from the west end (famous for musicals). Is there a west end musical that can be linked into the other music clues?

Thinking of going this summer, annoyingly it looks like the grandstand enclosures area all sold out for the Saturday. I'd ideally like to go on the Saturday at the pat France are on, which I've never seen before.
