Normally I'm not in to wishlist territory but this year I have been lucky with what I wished/hoped for.
Canadian chopper and well everything from Norway. So a 3rd attempt.

Wishing for
CONUS F-16s to add to the static.
Colourful ones I mean aggressors
and/or
white-red 'EDs' (fit double theme).
Well any CONUS unit is okay.

I have a feeling all the red/whites have long gone sadly.

Also Turkish Aerospace Hürjet will be flying at Farnborough. Not on my wishlist so much, but I wonder if anyone else would appreciate seeing it?
Me for one. It'd be another new type to tick off. Also at Farnborough will be a flying KC-390. IMO a nice looking heavy which would provide a bit of contrast for the RIAT flying display. Can I have that too please?

TBH, I'm getting greedy now. I'd buy a ticket for the F-15 alone. To get all the other fast jets, heavies and display teams just makes the ticket a steal for any aviation enthusiast.

Anyone know if there's a carrier close around the time of RIAT?
USS Wasp (LHD) and USS New York (LPD) will be taking part in the BALTOPS exercise soon - if they were to be nearby in July, an [select as embarked] AV-8B/CH-53E/AH-1Z/UH-1Y :heart_eyes: would be very welcome.

Well there's currently a few USMC AV-8s at RAF Mildenhall, so it's not impossible, although I doubt that they would be willing to stay for a minimum of 4 days stuck at an airshow.

Don't know if it's true or not, but seen reports that when Zelensky was at the D-Day80 event last week the F-16s escorting his aircraft were in Ukrainian markings.
If true, wonder what the chances are of some of them popping up at RIAT?
What the heck.....go the whole hog and 'Big Z' can turn up too! :grinning:

And then everyone will complain that it was too hot, and that the heat haze & cloudless sky spoilt their photos!

If this wishlist also counts for the weather then please:

25 degrees
no or very gentle wind
high veil clouds
no rain

Zeus isn't at RIAT this year, otherwise he could have arranged that. I'm sure. :sweat_smile:

With Nato Tiger Meet just having passed, I noticed that Turkey were still flying this airframe (never knew it existed and realised it attended last years NTM):

Although Turkey are already confirmed, this would be quite the addition to the already superb line!

Its OK but its another one of those over complicated tiger liveries which are too clever for their own good.

Kept meaning to get round to my 3x RIAT wishes .

1 - That my Health Anxiety doesnt stop me from going for any reason :-(

2 - The 2x times Ive took my family its been 32 degrees (2022) and pouring of rain (Friday 2019). So just nice weather please on the Saturday. .

3 - To see a B52 take off, or B2 do at least a flypast.

1 - Hope you make it and are in good shape physically/mentally! & have a great time
2 - Lets hope it is in the middle of those two lol I've got my mum and dad coming to one day, whenever my mum is about the weather has normally been terrible!! So I'm sorry in advance
3 - Agree, the B-52 went tech on the Saturday so I missed it! Then had something crop up at home so couldn't do the Sunday in the end so missed that takeoff!

I was weirdly going to put something like this earlier.

For the Tornado anniversary it would be nice to get the Saudi tornado on static! Chuck in the Italians and we would have every current operator?
