Re: Interesting Internet

German Typhoon has a fairly hefty season of commitments this year:

Nice to see a Luftwaffe asset back on the circuit ‘full time’.

Re: AIRPOWER22 - Zeltweg, Austria

Great show yesterday.

Lack of Austrian helis is puzzling though…?

Re: International Sanicole Airshow 2022

Hmmm big shame to lose Requin Mike, one of the highlights.

Still looks like a good show though, with Turkish Stars, Saudi Hawks, Thunder Tigers etc

Re: AIRPOWER22 - Zeltweg, Austria

A Spotlight post on the Croatian MiG is on the Airpower Facebook page.

If it comes off it must be one of the biggest coups for quite some time.

Re: AIRPOWER22 - Zeltweg, Austria

Bloody hell! Glad I opted for this show now, cannot wait. As I missed out on the spotters packages, is there anywhere good to watch arrivals / rehearsals outside the base on the Thursday? JJC You have one last chance for spotters packages on the 8th of August. https://www.airpower.gv.at/last-chance...

Re: AIRPOWER22 - Zeltweg, Austria

Has anyone done the show and got the train in?

Accommodation options in the local area look very limited so close to the show.

Also, is it a full show on the Friday and Sat and are both open to the public?

Cheers

Re: RIAT 2022 Discussion Thread

Now i will get shot down for this (very apt on an aviation forum i guess), but i'm feeling a tad Me-eh! Lots of props turning and dissapearing in the expance of a Fairford Sky, and i think the show is a little lightweight, compared to previous years. Now, before anyone says it, yes i am aware that ...

RJF were splendid this year. Definitely more dynamic than I recall. They have always been good but this year I thought their display exceptional. I don’t think the running order should be the same both days, felt incredibly sorry for the Swiss PC-7 team - who always put on an absolutely superb displ...

Re: RIAT 2022 Discussion Thread

Yeah they are, but in my opinion there will be one more. Friday was supposed to have the NATO E3 flypast + reds and P8 flypast. Saturday had the unannounced voyager and reds flypast + Beluga. Sunday so far only had the black eagles and the reds. I hope the rumours about the B2 flypast are true beca...

Great day all round for me, after COVID, just wonderful to be back.

Any comments on the F-35 and F-15 that come in straight over the crowd?
Heard they flew over whilst on the way to Farnborough. No idea if it’s true though.

Slow start but picked up quickly! Was a great day all in all! Some validations included, whats not to like. I’m surprised no ones mentioned Zeus, I was walking into red from yellow and its one of the few times I felt my hairs raise out of concern at a show. Nervously laughed it off, but that was do...

You know it was a really good RIAT day when the only thing I can think of that was at worst a mild meh was the Koreans didn’t appear to have any tat!
The cost of tat in general shocked me. No way is a patch worth £20, yet people were buying them in multiples 😂

Good day all round. That last 30 mins of arrivals was some of the best airshowing I’ve experienced. Magic stuff. Austrian typhoons were superb, as was the Finnish Hawk. Was going to mention Zeus - most improved display award goes to…. Even if he did get reprimanded for clearly overflying they crowd ...

Re: RIAT 2022 Discussion Thread

Sk.60 cancellation is a big loss. Was really looking forwards to them.

Seems like an odd type to pull out so last-minute.

Roll on tomorrow! I’ll be at West for the first time.

EDIT: also no Lancaster on Friday?!

Just noticed the Black Eagles are down for Shuttleworth this weekend (what a coup for them!) Does anyone know if they are actually operating out of Fairford?
