Top of my RIAT wish list would be the Collings Foundation's F4-D Phantom 65-0749 :thumb:. Highly unlikely I know, but I'd love to see that!

It would be a welcome return to the UK, because that very jet was based in the UK during the 1970's with the 81st TFW at Bentwaters.

And there's plenty more where that came from!

Appears the BBMF are planning something to celebrate their 60th anniversary at Cosford, Fairford & Scampton.

Could be interesting! :thumb:

Don't believe they did, certainly don't remember their Do-228.

Agreed, i think the appearance of that one aircraft could sell RIAT out very quickly
