Same for the Sri Lanka Air Force AN-32B, and the F/S/V/SP isn't there :shock: :dunno:


and the MS760 Paris


I'm pretty sure they're part of the cancellations. Those that have been italicised and have no representation of what they're doing over the weekend (F/S/V) I reckon are cancelled. So thats:

Romanian MiG 21s :sad:
Romanian C-27J
Sri Lankan AN-32B :sad:
MS760
Tucano T1 x2

Oh dear looks like this update was a big flop.

I was wondering if there was time for another one before the show - perhaps it is best to hope there isn't!

But the NZ B757 and RAF Merlin are still listed as F but no italics... :question: I think it's best to stay positive!

It is very confusing though as the 2x Tucano T1s have only just been added but no F/S appears next to them??

Bit of a disappointing up date really, cancellations of a couple of tasty aircraft (if confirmed) for a start and still no mention of the Vulcan :sad: Thought they were up and running fore this year? This update aside its still a cracking show :smile:

I'd make that at least two of the major stars cancelled - MiG-21 and An-32. Shame.

Strange that the Tucano display team have cancelled?

Probably nothing, if I'm honest. The problem is RIAT unfortunately don't replace star items with other potential star items. Surely the money for the Romanians and Sri Lanka participation can be put forward to draw another star item!? But it won't happen.

Where's the Czech participation? Italian? Canadian?
