I saw them at Biggin Hill few years back and thought it was a brilliant display. My first time at Yeovilton last year I sure will be returning!

Reserved a hotel this evening on the back of the superb Czech participation...thoroughly enjoyed my visit in 2018 and this year is shaping up to be another excellent edition of the show.

If the Gravity Industries 'Jet Man' can join the assault as i saw last year (which i personally thought was a waste of time) then lets all hope the Czechs could join this year?

It would be awesome for sure :yahoo:

Hind, Hip, Wessex and possible a commando Sea King that would be a great finale!

The thought of a Hip, Hind, Wessex and Sea King in a flying display is mouthwatering.

Well I understand not using historic types in the finale since it's about showcasing the Commando Force's modern capabilities, but using relevant REDFOR types would offer a potentially groundbreaking spectacle.

The thought of potentially using the Hip to deliver opposition forces would be incredible, but I can see how safety and training requirements to use it could preclude that. But having both operate as opposition air being "chased off" by Commando anti-air equipment (complete with flares and smoke dispensers etc) would bring a whole new dimension to the assault finale.

God....get on it Yeovilton!

I've never been to RNAS Yoevilton, but I'm thinking about it this year for a change. One more interesting item on the flying list might swing it.

I saw the Mi-171/Mi-35 role demo at SIAF last year, very good in my opinion as they both have a lot of presence together, the Hind solo display was basically the same as we've seen at RIAT with copious orange smoke but at the end of the day it's a Hind and sounds awesome so what's not to like...

Would the Alca pair and Gripen be allowed to use flares in their displays at Yoevilton?

Lack of "I believe that" or "I would imagine so" or "it's highly likely that" is the problem with that, and many other posts on forums.
As soon as other people see that in written format it comes across as authoritative and correct, whereas it's just opinion/belief.

You're strengthening my point: The official text says they "should include spectacular flare launches" whereas the post on here gives the definitive "will indeed".
There is a difference between hoping to do something and confirming your intent to do so.

Apologies, that’ll teach me to read things properly next time. I imagine both displays most probably will include pyrotechnics though.

Yeovilton Air Day 2020 & COVID-19

Postby alans895 on Sat 07 Mar 2020, 2:10 am

I asked:

Hello,

Can you please inform me of the policy regarding refunds in the event that the Air Day is canceled due to fears of the spread of the Corona Virus?



Sincerely,



Alan Crane
(Australia)


Reply:

Hi Alan,



Thank you for your email. At present we are continuing planning as normal for Air Day in the expectation that it will go ahead as planned. Should the Coronavirus cause the event to be cancelled for any reason, then as per our Terms and Conditions we are not obliged to offer any refunds; however, we are still in talks with insurers regarding this issue.



Kind regards,

Emma


Now, before anyone takes offence to me asking the question, bear in mind in my home Country (Australia) which has the added security of a "Big Pond" around us, Australia has already stopped Chinese, South Koreans & Iranians from travelling to Australia for the foreseeable future. Italians are on an extensive test before entry basis at this stage.

Admirable precautions against allowing the polluted world of disease ridden miscreants into your Country....but it don't stop you 'locals' travelling halfway round the World picking-up all kinds of nasties & taking 'em back like cheap souvenirs? COVID 19 is the least of your worries in Somerset! :whistle:

Fleet Air Arm Museum is closed.

RIAT just cancelled.

Can't be long before the same happens to Air Day.

Couldn't agree more about Yeovilton 2020 being cancelled, but probably NOT today. The introduction of 'POETS' day began in Somerset & RNAS Yeovilton has embraced it to the extreme. It's now gone 3pm on a Friday & the last person leaving switched-off the lights @ midday. :whistle:
