Really enjoyed the F-35s myself to be fair.

Gripen was fantastic on its PDA yesterday too.

Please if anyone hears an Air To Air Frequency at RIAT 2016

Please can they let me know, the frequency and the aircraft type using that frequency, as this will allow me to update the A2A (Air to Air), Frequency list in the RIAT 2016 Air Show Information section. :pop:

This year there appears to be no central list of A2A being used at Fairford RIAT 2016, unlike previous years !!!! :ninja:

There is one more participant that had not been announced. I can't say anymore (sorry, really am) but it is a type that has been seen only mock up form before in the UK.
Unless things have changed since I was told some earlier this year, and it is not going ahead, it is due to arrive Saturday and depart Sunday.
It might not be everyone's cup of tea (it's not really mine) but I am sure a lot of you will like it none the less.

Well Northrop Grumman keep giving clues through suggested sites on my Facebook Page. I do wonder if they may have made an announcement

Now that 2016 is over, can we start thinking of RIAT 2017. The theme is the 70th anniversary of the USAF - this should mean a good list of USAF participants.

One of the best items might be the Thunderbirds - have looked at there schedule for next year and there is a blank space for the 15-16/7. Lets hope

Hoping to make a mini holiday out of it in 2017 and head over for a few days. The Thunderbirds would be awesome
Here's hoping indeed. :thumb:
