I'd love to see a CH-53 once more. It's been quite a while now, but I'm not holding out much hope as according to the '2018 ‘Report on the Operational Readiness of the Bundeswehr Primary Weapons Systems’, only 16 out of 72 are operational. Likely can't spare one for a week.

Some of the Civilian operators have the most interesting aircraft out there.

Imagine a static area with:

MB Meteor
HHA Hunter
Draken Mirage F1
Top Aces A4
Top Aces Westwind
Top Aces Alpha Jet

Never gonna happen, but nice to think about!

I'm hoping for less arguing when the main thread starts to get into the swing of things.

Actually, I will wish for something more realistic, so Iranian F-14 display :biggrin:

A Mig-105 would be welcome too, if possible, if not how about a Buran? :lol:

As big a long shot as an Iranian F-14 turning up......

.... Friday 17th July is the UK premier of Top Gun 2. Just saying....

Gotta chuck German CH-53 and Norwegian Orion on the wishlist. Not long left for either.

Don't rule it out. Cruise will be in London that evening for the premiere so a Friday visit to RIAT is a possibility. Maybe Iceman too?

While we're still in the wishlist, how about a Boeing flown superbug, marked in a black/blue special scheme, to open up the display programme on Friday?

To be honest I was just thinking big screen for some apres flying entertainment. Now that would score some brownie points! :worship:
