On another topic, is the NATO E3 with the special scheme still around, or has it gone back to grey?

Totally happy with the Superjet flying at RIAT - never seen it before, so great. :clap:

It's one ten minute display slot in an 8.5 hour flying display. How can anyone get upset and annoyed by that? :facepalm: :wall:


Another thing, Sukhoi have obviously accepted RIAT's invitation to attend - that could be the start of a promising relationship, which might lead to bigger and better things in the future. It would be unwise to knock it's appearance.

Glad to see another update, happy to see another two F-16's, and KC-10 and yes good to see the Superjet flying, maybe out of touch yes, but i didnt see any of you complaining when the A380 was pencilled in for 2008!

Hoping for one last update with any of J-22/C-5/B-1B then its a done deal for me(as if it wasnt already)

Now jus wait for the weather forecast....

Indeed! This could be a sign they are willing to send the SU-35 Super Flanker over soon. Moley had that on his list, whose to say it will make a welcome suprise to RIAT, either this year or next.....

Perhaps if you looked who owns 25% of Sukhoi's civil division and who is one of the RIAT Sponsors and you might be able to put 2 + 2 together to make 4 :tongue:

I really enjoyed the DHL 757 display in 05 (what a topside!) and the Oasis 747 display in 07 wasn't too shoddy either. It's not a normal environment for an airliner and as one-offs I think they work quite well at an airshow like RIAT - big and long enough to accomodate such a display. I've said it before but having big aircraft that you wouldn't really see doing this anywhere else brings a bit of "Wow!" and theatre back to airshows and that's what we need. Would rather have the variety of a Superjet than another Hornet or another F-16.

I am indeed! :smile: But we aren't doing it this year I am on a Gliding Scholarship, actually hoping to go solo tomorrow :smile: And my bro is revising for his A level exam on Tuesday. Our team is not as good as it could be so now is your chance!

Tell me who won the air rec this year please, I assume 1918 Ruthin will have a strong team this year. Good Luck!

As far as I know, yes, but with a grey rudder. :)

I'm personally very happy with the Sukhoi Superjet, I think it looks lovely!

Hopefully this year our Region won't use dodgy MS Flight Simulator screen shots for the competition and then I'll get through to the Corp Competition! :wat:

Ditto. It must feel very 'damned if you do, damned if you don't'...
