Request time and some fun. RIAT 2021

Post by HeyfordDave111 »

Ok, i hope this gains traction for a number of reasons...

1) It can be fun and stretch the brain box a little.
2) it can be informative
3) It can give Peter Reoch (a member of this parish) and others, an idea of what we would like to see at RIAT 2021

The rules......
1) Only 1 aircraft type per person please, From any country, not just the current government approved ones).
2) You can also choose only 1 scheme. (it can be a special (unseen before or already carried) or it can be everyday colours).
3) You can request flying display or static (F or S) not both.
4) It must be something that currently flies or is being restored to flight and will fly within 15 months.
5) No multiple choices or entries

Yes i know we have the wish lists, but they can be a bit heavy going, so thats why 1 aircraft only. If you want a specific aircraft in specific colours please feel free to post an accompanying single photograph with your choice.

Cheers
Dave

I’d gladly take a Su-22 from Poland - or anywhere for that matter.
Actually any Easter bloc /Soviet era hardware is fine by me.

Presumably it wouldn't make any kind of appearance on the Saturday though...

A proper thread idea. :up:

I'd have said an Irish Cessna FR172 but they've gone :sad:

So I would say a Greek T-2 Buckeye, but I fear they may have kicked the buckeyte by then. :sad: :sad:

Therefore let's have a NASA WB-57 (an ER-2 if they're unavailable). :biggrin:

Since the Black Eagles and Al Fursan are taken, I'll nominate Equadrilha da Fumaça. Or the new Qatari team.
its time to kick the tyres and light the fires

How about a tanker theme for next year's show to go alongside RIATS birthday theme?
