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?

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!
