Given the rapid changes we are witnessing at the moment, perhaps a 747?
Why???

i'd love to see a B1 display or flypast, an A-10 role demo would also be great.
and for fun, get the BA special scheme 747s up for a formation flypast

Do you think we are likely to see a usaf demo team at next year's show and if so which one, i personally would like to see the a-10 demo team?

I think it could be quite likely. USAF Demo teams have been very good supporters of RIAT in recent years.

Is there a problem with the RIAT website today or is it my PC. I can access all my usual internet sites but not RIAT for some reason. Very odd

Nope, 2020 was meant to be, but due to Covid cancelling the majority of shows, Vader will be returning for 2021.

Word is the Black Eagles are planning a European tour for 2021. MAKS are advertising them and RIAT are supposedly in talks. With all the doom and gloom, perhaps this is a chink of light?

Some optimistic news for the 2021 Airshow season!
The world-famous South Korean aerobatic team the "Black Eagles" flying eight KAI T-50 Golden Eagle supersonic advanced trainers and light combat aircraft is considering a short European tour in July 2021! While not many details are known yet both the Royal International Air Tattoo and the MAKS-2021 International Aviation and Space Salon have already sent invitation letters to the Chief of Air Staff of the Republic of Korea Air Force and recently the General Director of Aviasalon JSC, Alexander Levin met with the ROKAF Attaché Colonel Kim Yong Wook to discuss the conditions for the participation of the team.
The Black Eagles are part of the 8th Fighter Wing of the Republic of Korea Air Force and are based at Wonju AB, in Gangwon province. Their last European visit in 2012 saw the team perform at the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford in 2012 where they won the King Hussein Memorial Sword, for the " 'Best Overall Flying Demonstration' and the 'As The Crow Flies Trophy'. They also displayed at the RAF Waddington International Air Show where they were awarded the Boeing Trophy for the best display.
While we can't predict the future and how the COVID situation will look next year we can only hope with our fingers and toes crossed that the team will make it to at least one of those events!

Hope i dont get any 'pelters' for this but i thought, seeing the Black Eagles display in clear skies of Fridays (i think it was) practice, i had never seen a better display.

Some displays are patriotic and tight, some are tighter, but not many are afterburning, fast, tight and dynamic........bring it on!

Shouldn't get any pelters really - the Black eagles were an incredible display team to watch

Definitely the best team i've ever seen.

They were an amalgamation of the precision and panache of a European team with all the thunder and speed of a US team. Just amazing.

I won't hold my breath - but if this happens i'll be more than happy.

The last time they were over was long before I started going to bigger airshows over in England.

I hope they come. It would be fantastic to see them.

Nothing new IMO. South Korea has been on the list of invited countries for as long as DBH made that list public (and maybe even longer).
A weather forecast is a forecast and just that
