Well unless DBH pull their finger out pretty quick this is shaping up to be the worst RIAT since the last one. Not happy - sort it out DBH!!!
With just the slightest bit of finesse, I might have made a little less mess.

Being serious (momentarily...), I've seen two sets of dates for 2016. I believe that 8-10 July is the more recent info, can anyone confirm...? :question:

Ta! :smile:

In stature, grace and hue,
In shadowy silent distance grew the iceberg too....

The current rate of bookings troubles me, and makes me question the wisdom of attending.
At this rate this event will be known as the 'Royal International Appreciation of Tarmac'.

I'll be writing to my MP.

Will they allow drones in next year ??
I was extremely disappointed that I couldn't bring in a couple of quadcopters to get some nice close-up pix of the aircraft as they were displaying.
