Happy News Harrier Display Dates 2009!!!

Post by HarrierListUK »

Hi All,

Now this is out in the open see the Waddington Airshow Forum, and although totally unconfirmed but highly probable (90%). The following are the dates for the 2009 Harrier display. There are one or two exceptions to the rule so far. The display at Cosford and Culdrose will start with a Tac Demo but, apart form that its all systems go!

The Harrier involved should be ZG506/77 which was the 7th Harrier to roll out of the JUMP at Cottesmore on the 15/03/2006. The tail should be all blue with a wild cats head.

Which is the same as carried on the Harriers of 20(R)Sqn today and was the patch worn by 233OCU back in 1969. There maybe some sort of logo on the airframe but that is still TBC.

Good news indeed, looks like it might be a bit of a quiet year so a good blast of Harrier noise will help a lot!

Fabulous news! Really made me very happy to hear that - Airshows have really missed the Harrier in the last two years IMO.

Fantastic news, but, I'm not sure Cosford is still on the schedule :sad:

Hopefully this might have changed but I'll let LSB confirm one way or the other.

Excellent to have it back. After two years away I was was worried we wouldn't see it back. I'm happy to know I was worrying for nothing. Thanks to all who've made it happen.

Awesome news :clap: :clap: :clap:

Being my absolute favourite aircraft, I've really missed the Harrier these last two seasons, so I'm hugely glad to have it back on the circuit :D

Now, if I was to be greedy, I'd love to see Dawlish added to that provisional list :whistle: :grin:

Happy News Harrier Display Dates 2009 - The Truth

Post by Light Blue Spy »

OK then . . . Here is the full story of the RAF Harrier Season 2009 – minus any conjecture, misinformation and wishful thinking. Plans have been fairly solid for a few weeks but a couple of fairly significant issues needed to squared away. I have held back posting on this subject because I wanted to publish the full picture. However, rumour is everywhere so will give the current position.

No 20(R) Sqn will be providing a Harrier role demonstration this season at a restricted number of venues. The definition of a “display” as opposed to a “role demonstration” is largely an internal one that no one needs to be concerned about. Do not expect bangs! The Harrier will be doing those things the Harrier does best.

The display commitment by No 20(R) Sqn has to be worked around other normal sqn business. This has influenced the choice of venues, which are as follows:

24-25 May 09 – Southend
27-28 Jun 09 – Biggin Hill
4-5 Jul 09 – Waddington
14 Jul 09 - Yeovilton
18-19 Jul 09 – RIAT
29 Jul 09 – Culdrose
12 Sep 09 - Leuchars

In addition to the normal caveats, we do anticipate a change or two. As ever, I will keep you posted – with the facts.
