The PA-23 Aztec and Cessna 550 Citation of Marshall Aerospace are also due to be attending as day visitors, alongside a Cessna 680 of Cartier Europe (mentioned a few months back but never added to the Participation list.)

Re: FRIAT Forum (Satuday 21st Feb) questions

- I notice there is no FRIAT Thursday evening walkabout advertised anymore... if this is not taking place, is there any chance the enclosure will remain open until later on the Thursday, similar to last year? - What is the typical process of booking, say, a military aircraft for the show? - Has this...

There was also a leased civillian version present at RIAT (2009?) as a support aircraft on the Departure Day I believe.

Re: Log 26/1/12

If the Hawk's tailcodes were 'CA' then that would likely make it XX284, operated by the Red Arrows out of Scampton but still in 100 Sqn marks.

Re: RAF Scampton Families day 22/8/2011

I find it highly unlikely that the event will now be taking place, given the sad death of Flt Lt Jon Egging this afternoon, and considering that the Hawk T1 aircraft has since been grounded. For the families involved, I doubt a day of entertainment is at the front of their minds.
