Does it actually say anywhere it will be 'tooled up'? If so, where?

Just received the following from DBH, I'm sure a few might moan like last year :pop:

Dear FRIAT Member

Please note that due to Validation requirements on Thursday 7 July the FRIAT Enclosure will need to close promptly at 5pm.

As requested, a bus will be available from the Blue Customer Entry Point that will transport members round to Park & View East at 4.30pm. This service is only available one way; there will not be any transport back to the Blue Entry Point at the end of the day.

If you wish to use the bus for Park & View please give your name to the FRIAT desk on the day. This will help us to gauge the number of buses required to transport members to Park & View at 4.30pm.

Many thanks and we look forward to seeing you all next week!

Pretty low I would have thought. Would it not have been announced at the same time if something smaller was tagging along?

not necessarily.
i have known aircraft to turn up at riat without it being posted on the website before . wishful thinking maybe but no harm in dreaming.

According to the Chinook Display Team page they're still on for RIAT, unless I missed something.

Yes but according to that, Bournemouth's 4 day airshow is 6 days this year! I don't doubt they will indeed be at RIAT though!
