Just home from work and saw this thread.

A great idea Andy, perfectly executed, and much appreciated :clap: especially in the grotty weather. I won't be the only one hoping for some sun on Saturday (if not before).

Thank you very much indeed :smile:

Hi Agg,

Do you, or any other members, know if the B2 is arriving today, or is it tomorrow ?.
If you know an ETA, that would be great, I could nip off from work to see it come in, that's all.
Never seen one

Thanks in advance

No one knows, as the US and RIAT aren't disclosing it. One of the key things behind the confirmation is presumably that RIAT doesn't disclose when it's arriving, for I would say protests or terrorists shooting at it. When it turns up it will turn up, so get there anytime you can and hope it comes in then.

If someone posts that it's coming in on this day and the time, the US could withdraw it. So stay quiet, get along when you can, and hope you get lucky. That implies to all who read this and were thinking about posting a similar comment. :cool:

Ok TomTwin, fully understand what you're saying there, didn't realise the climate is as sensitive as it is, ........then again maybe I should've.
Thanks for the advice, I'm still a newbie of sorts, so still understanding the protocal on these forums.

Guys,

Riattold someone by email last night that if the arrival times are public the USAF are likely to cancel the B2. Please DO NOT discuss it on the forums.

Anyway, first update of the day.

As someone who will not be visiting RIAT this thread has been a joy to follow with some excellent quality photographs. For me the colour schemes on the Emirati and Korean aerobatic teams stand out by the proverbial country mile. Red Sparrows need to start looking at a different scheme. They are so far behind these days compared with many other teams.

Have to disagree, the Asian teams look good as much as anything else because they're different. I think the likes of the Arrows and Patrouille de France look good because they're a more traditional style.
