F-35B Flypast Confirmed :smile:

PARTICIPATION UPDATE
F-35B Lightning – Royal Air Force (Flying)

Lightning forecast! The cutting-edge F-35B Lightning will make its Royal Navy International Air Day debut on Saturday 13 July at RNAS Yeovilton. Making an airborne-only appearance, the state-of-the-art multirole stealth fighter will bring a glimpse of future UK airpower to Air Day with two flypasts - one slow and one fast. A full-sized F-35B model with cockpit access will also be on static display for a close-up look at the UK’s new fifth generation fighter.

F-35s currently equip the RAF’s legendary 617 Squadron – The Dambusters - at RAF Marham, where both RAF and RN pilots fly them. This autumn British F-35s will embark in HMS Queen Elizabeth for the very first time marking a new era of fixed wing naval aviation for the RN as they work up to becoming a fully-operational, global carrier strike capability by late 2020.

Guess they're just teasing us for better things in future years! I suppose we'll get a bit of a hover in the slow flyby....

Don't count on it... It didn't happen at Duxford in September!

PARTICIPATION UPDATE

Meteor T7 x 2 – Martin-Baker (Static)

Didn't they have two down last year and ended up with none?

PARTICIPATION UPDATE
Merlin HM2 – Royal Navy (Flying)
Wildcat HMA2 x 2 – Royal Navy (Flying)

The Fleet Air Arm’s cutting-edge Wildcat HMA2 and Merlin HM2 helicopters are teaming up for a dynamic combined Maritime Role Demo in the Royal Navy International Air Day’s flying display. The two rotary types will demonstrate frontline interoperability as their capabilities combine in the sky above RNAS Yeovilton. Equipping the resident 815 and 825 Naval Air Squadrons, the Wildcat HMA2 is a new-generation multi-mission maritime helicopter tasked with anti-ship and anti-surface warfare, ship protection, casualty evacuation and more. The Merlin HM2 serves with three squadrons at RNAS Culdrose in Cornwall. Its primary role is anti-submarine warfare. Additional examples of both helicopters will be on static display.

Great news and super participants :clap: :worship: , but I do wish things weren't overhyped. The Alize is not making its UK airshow debut or indeed even its Yeovilton debut. As a civilian operated type it is appearing for the first time. Its highly likely this aircraft has appeared at several UK shows in the past. :cuppa:

It's making its Association Alizé Marine-operated UK debut. If you isolated just that 'UK airshow debut' paragraph, I'd agree, but when the type and operator are listed right above, I think in context the statement's correct. :snack:

Tried looking on the site but couldn't find anything, what time does the flying display start? Thinking about doing a day trip from London!

Cool, nice to have a Navy bird. starting to get a little impatient for some headline acts though. Is it just the Belgian F16 and the Typhoon so far in fast Jets?
Highlights thus far are the Cocardes Marine and the Wessex, but a bit more still to come I’m sure!
