Re: RIAT 2024 - discuss most things thread

Frecce Tricolori unlikely to be at RIAT again, they are going on a US / Canadian tour. Although no dates have been given it’s been said they’ll be in Los Angeles for a flyover of the sailing ship Amerigo Vespucci on a 2 year around the world tour. Looking at the schedule Amerigo Vespucciis is due i...

Damn! Think I read that P-8 was only built in 2020. Thankfully all survived

Re: RIAT 2024 wishlist.

I am hoping that we can some Farnborough crossover this year. They said before during one of the virtual airtattoos that the PAF 'want' to bring over the JF-17. Surely more chance with Farnborough happening. Or I could be talking out of my ar..

Re: RIAT 2024 - discuss most things thread

Christ, plenty of unnecessary doom and gloom on here recently... Well the thinking of reducing frequency is that you might get better participation when you do have a show. Rather than mediocrity every year, have something much better every second. I have to disagree, and I think that running the s...

Re: RIAT 2024 - discuss most things thread

I think the whole 'repetitive' argument is a bit harsh. We all know that it is the same aircraft every year that make up the bulk of the static and flying program ... but that is just a result of what modern air forces have become. The days of 4-5 different fighters in an air force have gone, replac...

Re: RIAT 2024 - discuss most things thread

RIAT 22 peed all over RIAT 2011 and 2013. Different strokes for different folks clearly. Agreed but those shows are low bars. I thought it was some sensational participation. Swedes, A-4, and an E-4B all in the air on the Friday. Not counting the trainers; flying displays from the Black Eagles, Aus...

Re: RIAT 2024 wishlist.

As posted by skylinerworld in aviation waffle..... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ar6f4Pw3UHs Would love to see an Eagle demo again, suppose the only viable options would be the above or the Saudi demo.

Re: RIAT 2024 wishlist.

This was being flown by a Boeing company crew, so we’ll just have to hope they bring one over for Farnborough next year - that would be the only realistic chance of a RIAT appearance. Yeah good point. We had a run of the superhornet displaying because of the same circumstances. So hopefully they ar...

I wouldn’t bank on any ACC attending especially as the last two years RIAT has been on their calendar and haven’t shown up!

Something to do with the Daks perhaps?
Yep good point, the mind boggles though. It's going to make a boring Thursday at work a bit more interesting!

Re: RIAT 2024 wishlist.

If the post on social media is referencing an update tommorow, then what are our thoughts that it could be? Personally it feels around the right time for the USAF to announce their schedule so I reckon USAF f16 demo Yeah the f16 demo is the most relevant with the themes etc, but the a10 demo team i...

Re: RIAT 2023 Discuss everything thread

A 10:30 am start is welcome imho... Bit more time for getting from Red to Green to Red again for statics! Yep 100%! I always smash the majority of static before the start of the flying then finish it off afterwards. Last year got caught out by suddenly hearing and then seeing the Italian typhoon bl...

Wednesday & Thursday looking decent, plus the wind blowing the 'right' way.
Less said about Friday & Saturday the better (hopefully time for an alteration)

Hoping Sunday stays as it is currently shown as that looks fine at the moment! 🤞🤞
Yep a lot more sun showing 🤞

Re: RIAT 2023 Discuss everything thread

That DBH instructs the jets to use afterburner to warm up the crowd, so they can sell more ice cream? Well that explains my urge for a 99 while at RIAT, despite the price. On another note I was wondering if there was a capercaillie 'gofundme' account? No idea where that's come from. 😂 don’t humour ...

Re: RIAT 2023 Discuss everything thread

Yep anything cancelling is a miss, I love having such a big static park at the show. But as cancellations go … none in the flying display is a bonus. And there could have been a lot more ‘star’ items that would be missed more than what has cancelled.

My wish for today if there's any communication from them, is that all the weather forecasts are talking "Kris Kris Tofferson!" and it's going to be wonderful sunshine throughout.
