The display is no different to what we've seen at Fairford and even then that's a very good showcase of the aircraft.

Really? Have you seen it? Or are you judging it by two photos that have been posted on Twitter? Because it hasn't been seen publicly yet and I don't remember a "full back stick take off" in the previous RIAT displays.

I'm pretty sure the FAF wouldn't copy the previous Airbus Military routine, they'd surely want to put their own mark on it?

Having visited the Paris Air Show in 2013 and hearing the glowing praise for the routine by Airbus, the FAF don't need to "put their own mark on it" and I believe they don't intend to. Even if they did, the routine wouldn't be a whole lot different - if at all.

It seems like you're the one judging it by two photos on Twitter.

Then why work up a routine if you can just get Airbus Military to do it? Even with simply two photos, there's already something different in the FAF routine. Of course there will be some similarities and there's only so much you can do with it. But just because the Airbus routine is widely praised, doesn't mean it'll be copied, exactly the opposite I would think - just like the European F-16, Typhoon and Hornet displays.

Look at the huge differences between the Alenia C-27J display and the RSV.

The demonstration practically stole the show at Le Bourget in 2013 and the FAF praising it is different to you praising it.

I was reliably informed that if there were to be a FAF demonstration it would be replicated in the early years on the Airbus demo. Therefore, I can't see how different it would be. The Airbus demo is very impressive anyway!

Some of that stuff hasn't been confirmed on the RIAT website - I know lots of people have said they're attending on their own websites btu i think the only real "confirmed list" is the one that RIAT put out. Also, I note you haven't put the Flying Bulls in there!
