It would be nice if the attending nations brought cheeses with them to sell alongside the tat. Particularly the French. But not the Americans.

And if was being really really pedantic a fiscal year is not the same as a financial year.

I am living in hope that last years tour to the USA and Canada by the reds will bare a fair bit of fruit from our friends across the pond in these following aircraft;
A-10 flying
E-6b
C-5
Kc-46
B-2 static
Ac-130
I have my fingers crossed any one of these aircraft lands at Fairford i will be very happy.

That'd be a pretty good swap - a bunch of Hawk T1s for the above little lot!

With Breitling seemingly calling time on their aviation investment/sponsorship, a few of the teams need fresh backing. Primula Jet Team has a nice ring to it. Mini Babybel branding on the Stearmans would look super smart.

I'd argue the fact the reds were returning the favour for all the support they've given us over the years!

I'd agree.

I think there is a good chance of a KC-46 though.

Personally I'd rather a KC-10, ideally both!

Would love to see the Dutch KC-10. It was due at Cosford in 2018 but cancelled.

B1 - its days are numbered with 17 being cut in the next budget and maintenance issues with the others

Italian AMX (star of the show imo in 2014) and Italian Tornado (but I have a feeling there no longer displaying the old girl).

Also, when was the last time a hawkeye was present?

Only appearance since the show moved to Fairford in 1985, a French Navy one. A US Navy aircraft was due in 1998, even made the arrivals sheet but never materialised.

Would be good to see. Still waiting to see their CASA up close though. Cancelled last summer.
