How about a guest of honour in Captain Tom Moore? providing all this has cleared up it would be a brilliant gesture given his achievements.

I can't think of much worse to be honest... And, don't think I'm picking on you, but I can't really understand the relevance of Tom Moore being a guest of honour either.

Well, actually, I would quite like to see the Voyager in formation with the Reds and if it is in a livery to represent the UK (yes, it is the UK's aircraft, not the PM's solely)

That aside, as for Tom Moore....Why not? I've already asked the question via a link I have to the show. Or would you prefer a Z-List celebrity instead?

I would think that DBH staff and those linked to the organisation of (R)IAT over the past 50 years could be part of a group of guests of honour, given next year's theme.

It doesn't interest me, and, with all due respect to the fellow for his remarkable charity work, nor does Captain Tom.

I do not see his relevance to the airshow or to the theme, and would much rather hear talks from ex display pilots, organisers, anyone involved with the history of RIAT.

If they want to give him a ticket that's up to DBH!

To be brutally honest, the thought of a Union Jack clad Voyager in formation with the Red Arrows, sounds like a vomit inducing display of underserved national pride. Perhaps Captain Tom can skydive in with a giant Union Jack parachute while BoJo waves his Tim Tams from the Voyager window, and we can all have a big gammony picnic!

:wink: :wink: :wink:

Not for me, give me the Blades with the A-400 again.

PS. No offence intended to anyone. I'd be interested in seeing a specially painted Voyager if the scheme is nice!

I'd say it was the 'United Kindgoms' A330, its just that the current prime minister will use it first.

Quite agree! Any scheme on a RAF Voyager is better than the boring overall grey they are in now. Also we need some patriotic pride to raise our morale out of the virus pandemic. Also delighted to see Tom Moore as guest of honour there....better than Carol Vorderman or the likes?

Except that Carol Vorderman has direct and obvious links with military aviation that Capt (of the British Army) Tom Moore does not.

I don't know about 'the likes' though, perhaps they're less appropriate... :dunno:

Apart from being the honorary group captain of the Air cadets, [she commits large amounts of her time to the cadets and the cause] a female ambassador for STEM and aviation projects - projects that encourage girls into these sectors, Carol is also a great contributor to aviation in general, she is exactly what our aviation passion needs right now. She is generous with her time and support for what we all love. I find a suggestion of anything to the contrary quite weird to be honest. Aviation needs the support of people like her.

Nope, not aimed at you. I just didn't get the need for that previous comment. We need to stand strongly together in this environment at the moment, and Carol is a great supporter of all the things we love. I shake my head in disbelief.

The one aircraft I would actually love to see at RIAT in 2021 is a C5 Galaxy. I have never seen one as well as the return of the Couteau Delta team.
