There is a 26 aircraft flypast planned for the D-Day commemorations in Portsmouth in the week leading up to Cosford - any chance this flypast could be repeated at the show?

Or will it go to RIAT as usual ?

Great line up so far - wondering if the polish or french air forces may send aircraft. Plus any other overseas aircraft bringing veterans for the d day events may be able to participate in the show too...

Any source for this flypast? And no, the chances of it being repeated at Cosford or RIAT are very slim.

Unless it's static, the French Air Force aren't participating.

My assumption was that it would be part of the National event that is taking place in Portsmouth on 5th June 2019 - but you are right no date been mentioned for the flypast itself ...

is the 75th anniversary of D-Day a theme at this years show?? which is the 'official' RAFs 75th D-Day air show ??

Hopefully the RAF Cosford airshow organisers will be able to get any foreign air force aircraft that may be bringing veterans to the event ???
any indication that the NZAF are attending the event?

In the air, there will be a special trio of aircraft performing a formation flying display together, including a Jet Provost T3 in the colours of the RAF Red Pelicans display team - a predecessor to the Red Arrows team of today.

Thanks to the participation of the RAF Museum, and a number of civilian aircraft operators, visitors will be able to see a chronologically arranged display of Jet Provost aircraft, from the initial T1 design, through the T3, T4 & Strikemaster armed variant. A Piston Provost - the aircraft on which the Jet Provost was based - will also form part of the display.

Written with such authority... which I assume you don’t have. What’s your source for the lack of French airborne participation?

Reasonable assumption based on the fact that the Rafale, Alpha Jet & Patrouille De France have released their calendar, with no mention of Cosford.

Perhaps should have referred to the French Air Force so for that, I apologise. Original post has now been edited to reflect.
