P&V Thursday Ticket WANTED

Evening chaps

If anyone has a spare P&V ticket for Thursday, I’d happily take it off your hands.

Left it too late to jump!

Cheers

Re: International Sanicole Airshow 2022

Cheers chaps! All really useful info. I’ll purchase the food tokens in advance to save the faff on the day.

Decided on the Royal Military Museum in Brussels on Saturday morning, as that’s been on my list for ages.

Re: International Sanicole Airshow 2022

Could someone please explain the food vouchers?

Is it necessary to purchase these in order to buy food on site?

Many thanks

Did you book the spotters day and the airshow?
Just the evening show Saturday / Sunday show at the moment.

I didn’t know how accessible KB would be via public transport / especially needing to be back for the evening show starting at 5.

Re: RIAT 2022 Discussion Thread

Am I right in thinking there are usually some rehearsals and validations after most of the arrivals wrap up Thursday afternoon? It depends what you mean by arrivals wrapping up really? In 2019 for example the Romanians MiG21s and C-27J both arrived around the 6.00pm-6.20pm mark. MiG didn't fly a pr...

Re: Cosford 2022 - your thoughts

Getting out was a farce. Almost 2 hours without moving more than a car length, for an alternative route to be opened going out across the end of the runway - we were out in 20 mins. A shambles. Showground rather meh to be honest. Felt empty and lacking in cohesion. Why oh why was the C-130 parked al...

Re: RIAT 2022 Discussion Thread

With the Osprey demo we can't say the USAF won't provide a flying display this year. Was hoping for the Netherlands air force to send over the C-130, Chinook and Apache. Hopefully the army air corps send an apache for static. With the Saturday over-booked we might not get any more flying displays? ...

They look superb in the camo.

A shame one isn’t hanging around for the static / to support the team whilst they’re over here.

Does Totterdown accept day-visitors on the Thursday?

Travelling down in the morning and thought it might be a chance to see some practice displays later on, after the arrivals start to finish up.

Excellent variety on show this year. I doubt there’ll be time for anything but a quick loo break during the flying.

Re: Southport 2022

A Facebook post, now deleted, by a website that often takes random rumours and purports them as fact. It’s still showing on their Facebook page as of now for me. Re the link to the announcement on the Southport website, I can’t see any mention of this being a shorter display? Happy to be corrected....

Apologies - I had not seen any communication that the Southport display would be a truncated version of the full routine.

European Airshows reporting a ‘limited’ 7 min display at both Southport and Farnborough - likely just a solo?

Nice! Always good to see the RNZAF 757, especially flying.

Some excellent RAF additions.

Re: RIAT ‘22 wish list

Kiwi C-130H relocating / performing a flypast from Brize for the weekend?

I would’ve thought the Jubilee might have been a theme for the show this year - In retrospect, possibly a better punt than USAF 75?

Re: RIAT 2022 Discussion Thread

One of the most varied and interesting lineups in quite a while. A sizeable portion of the flying is totally new to me - which is certainly something I can’t say every year. Fast jets aren’t everything, as much as they are a staple and it wouldn’t be RIAT without a sizeable contingent of them. Varie...

Nice!

Went all the way to Bucharest to see one in 2019, never thought I’d get to see one over here.

A340 will certainly dominate the static.

Shaping up very nicely.
