Man, this show!

What other show will you see a U2, Phantoms, an Alize and a F15QA in the air on the same day!

Credit where it's due to Peter and the team.
Yep it is madness how good Riat is.

So lucky it is relatively on our door step!

Do we know when the A4 is arriving?
Is that the folded sheet of lies or the Top Aces Skyhawk?

Re: RIAT 2024 - discuss most things thread

Now very very excited for next week! 4 Phantoms is amazing in this day and age. As the Koreans have or are retiring the Phantom this means we have some of the last operators? I think someone like Iran may have some but not sure

There's a pick'n'mix stall? This makes up for the bad FRIAT news today :joy:
Even better news, FRIAT have a dedicated line although it has been moved back and a bit further West.
We're only allowed to choose from the sours though.

Here in London at the moment it's rained for about 5 days straight. Has flattened my excitement for the show a little.
I’m trying to think the opposite, get all of this out of the way now … all good for next week. I’m top of Kent/south London and its been awful lol

Re: RIAT 2024 - discuss most things thread

Looking forward to see the last display of the Saudi Hawks with the old 'livery' at Riat. Hopefully coming a couple of times in a row means we get them over again soon after changing jets. The new style on the new hawks for them looks unreal.

Re: RIAT 2024 - discuss most things thread

Side note.. finished the podcast. Just a great listen, makes me very optimistic and excited for the future of RIAT. Even from confirming the Indian jags was being discussed to the chat of looking at rare items to come with themes in the future. Very very good listen. Of course doesn’t mean anything ...
