It may not set the world on fire but BA will be providing an LCY based A318 for static display on Sat/early Sunday. It will be open for viewings and to have a chat with the crew on Saturday ( and possibly Sunday morning but not confirmed )

Thanks.


The P-8 will be flying most afternoons, including the weekend :smile:


Where did you get this information?!


Was about to ask the same. It would make sense seeing that Boeing are still looking for sales but I haven't actually heard it confirmed


Clearly my sources are protected..... :ninja: but it's nevertheless true. She will be flying with a full weapon load too (shapes only of course) another thing not seen at RIAT :wink: See you there

If your talking about the weekend, yes. I've been able to do so for previous shows. :smile:

I can confirm that the two Classic Air Force jet participants will be G-HELV (Camoflague) T.55 Vampire and G-BWMF 'WA591' Meteor T.7. This may have already been posted elsewhere but I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere the specific Vampire and Meteor. Although, on the www.classicairforce.com movements page (where the displays for both of those are listed), I cant see any mention of an Avro Anson display so I presume it is the Blue Shuttleworth Anson.

Also, does anyone know when the British Airways A318 is due to arrive?

Cheers

Thought so, anyone thinking the static map lineup was a dead cert had no grasp on global politics. That and the A350-1000 is still in production!

Yeh, hope to see the Saab 35 Draken. It looks like something out of Star Wars.

I find it ironic that FIA is supposed to be a cutting edge trade show and yet the enthusiasts want to see the Viggen, Me262 and the AV8.

Some of us older enthusiasts still would like Farnborough of old where the latest models were displayed. It was very different to other UK air shows but now it just mimics the rest although admitedly this year they have captured a few gems.

The week days are a cutting edge trade show. The weekend is not.
