Why would someone on an RNLAF crew know this information?

I fear you're setting yourselves up for disappointment with some of these predictions/hopes!

I'm not hoping or predicting Anything I also think it's all wishful thinking on the original posters part.

Turkish Stars. USAF Flypast announcement, Thai A340 or Japanese 767 are my guesses.
I was thinking to myself that we may get a USAF Flypast announcement of some sort. A series of passes from an LN F15 and F35.

Agreed, its probably a shaggy dog story.
However didn`t the display teams get a confidential briefing from RIAT this week regarding "stuff" about the show.

The guy did correctly predict was the RNLAF will send 2x F-16 over. Only way to find out is to wait :D
With RIAT air ops confirming that NATO are unable to send their E-3A for static does that mean they will attend regardless? Like a nato commander?

Shame about the Meteor :-(
With just the slightest bit of finesse, I might have made a little less mess.

That’s a real shame about Turkey as they have just announced they are sending Phantoms to the NATO days show in Sept!

Big shame to lose the Meteor, that would have been a highlight for me.

Hopefully next year, likewise for the nations that are not attending.

Suggest you go back and re-read the post because you're just making things up now!

The post says that the documentation that went out lists wing-spans and limitations for certain types. That doesn't mean those types are coming to RIAT!
