Wow, just wow...

Sunday Flypast announced from the latest RIAT email:

The 50-year anniversary of Airbus will be celebrated on Sunday 21 July at the Air Tattoo with a special flypast from their A400M tactical transporter accompanied by the Blades Aerobatic team!

The European aerospace giant, which employs 13,500 people across sites in the UK, begins a year of celebrating five decades of aircraft design and manufacture.

This unique and never-before seen formation of an Airbus A400M and four Extra 300 aircraft (eight spinning propellers in total!) will feature in the full-length flying display on Sunday 21 July; alongside highlights like the Mig-21 LanceR, Su-27 Flanker and the final UK performance this summer from the Red Arrows!

An Air Tattoo spokesperson said, "This is a great opportunity to see the a new and unique formation for tens of thousands of people at the Air Tattoo. Both the Blades and Airbus pilots are used to precision flying and are really looking forward to bringing something new to the show!"

Whilst it does say flypast, it does conjure images of the A400M keeping formation during the Blades' own display....... :yahoo:

Wow, I wonder what they tried for before being left with that option. Unique or not, nobody has ever thought to themselves “you know what I’d really love to see at the Air Tattoo? The Blades and Airbuses Atlas”.

To me, it's not so much what it is, it's how it's announced.

That's pretty puerile isn't it. It almost seems patronising. Maybe it's just me. :dunno:

What connection have The Blades got to Airbus?

Smacks of desperation for something, anything on Sunday.

Let’s celebrate 50 years of Airbus with a flypast where 4 out of 5 of the participants aren’t Airbus aircraft...

Do have to admit the "(eight spinning propellers in total!)" bit really is not great on RIAT's marketing front.

it does feel like a failure to get something else. especially given the A400M and Blades will likely have flown or will fly at another point during the day.

imagine having an entire plethora of aircraft to choose from to do a flypast, and you get this as the final result.


I'll toilet break that one i'm afraid, what a let down IMO.

I'm sure there are probably reasons, but why not Frecce Tricolori with the RSV elements flypast.

Groan. A400M and the Blades, having no connection to one another that I'm aware of, are going to fly past in formation, just for the sake of. What a waste of time. :down:

I was very much hoping that Airbus were going to do something meaningful for the show to mark their fiftieth. This was the last thing that sprung to mind.
its time to kick the tyres and light the fires
