I'd love to see some of these Russian types at RIAT, especially the bombers. Sadly can't see it happening in the present political climate. Maybe one day though.

They will all come to Fairford to view the spring which is the acknowledged start of the great (world renowned) River Thames. - and just happen to bring their aeroplanes to the conveniently situated local airport. (And there's always Brize for the overspill)

Yeah! The types you're more likely to see over here are stealthy & secretive.
All of them will have changed their names,
developed an over-zealous passion for UK tourism facts
& will be bringing tax-free Eau-de-toilette by the pallet....allegedly?
