I'd love to be wrong though.
Did the A400 return after?

Yep, came in with the F-16s on Wednesday, departed and returned for static later that week- hoping the 135 may do the same thing!

Anyone else seen the F-35B display video on Facebook posted by the official RIAT page? Without wanting sounding like all of the F-35 haters, it doesn't look particularly exciting, the take off has the afterburners put on after it's already in the air and way away from the crowd... kinda wanted to see more of a high performance, not to mention loud take off. Hopefully the rest of it or the other display is more interesting, I've heard it's quite noisy at full chat, and was looking forward to experiencing that first hand!

It was a loud takeoff, stood by the fence it was surprisingly loud. Surprisingly quiet on one pass, the back to loud, with some very strange noises during landing.

Was very dissapointed by the F35. The display was incredibly sedate and the aircraft itself is in all honesty unimpressive and rather pointless. We should've just bought aircraft carriers with catapults. The Rafale looked ace

Were not buying the F-35 because of its pretty manouvers at airshows.

Superb day at P&V East today, way better now that you park on the base instead of having to queue alongside the busy road. Apparently there aren't any Parking Permit ticket things for the show days this year, my Dad printed off all that he was sent and they weren't included, seems a bit weird.
