Oh don't get my hopes up. Could this finally be the year we're not 'treated' to the experience of the Falcans and their Briggs and Stratton power Extras.
Personally I enjoy watching highly skilled pilots from an air force which, in partnership with the UK and other countries represented at RIAT, is fighting a war in the Middle East. The team uses an aircraft frequently used over the years at world aerobatic championships. It is also pleasing to show respect to the team and the accompanying ground staff at the marquee which is usually on the airfield where you are welcomed and shown a little of the country and the history of the support that Jordan and its Royal family have given RIAT for very many years. I for one am grateful for that and look forward to seeing them this year (hopefully) and in the future.
