Re: RIAT 2020 Cancelled

If only we could. Drive in, park up and have your car as a base. Certainly better for social distancing than queuing to get in for an hour

Re: Early bird parking

It appears there is nothing on the RIAT site re 'early bird' parking. Perhaps why last year (East end) the usual 'early bird' area was not open hence everyone parked in the lane adjoining it with the resultant problem as originally mentioned which will no doubt be repeated this year unfortunately. H...

Early bird parking

I always get to the East end 'early bird' park area around 0530 Saturday. It used to be that once gates open '(0600') they would let you in first and hold traffic on road coming from Lechlade. Last year they let in the Lechlade traffic and you had to feed in when you could. Certainly unfair to those...

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2018 Discussion Thread

Been to more RIAT's than I can remember and always get to the East end line after photographing static around 0930. I have never had a problem getting a crowd line space but in the last few years I have and been forced to stand behind the 'chair line'. Fair enough as you can't expect people to stand...

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2018 Discussion Thread

Definitely further away and higher in my opinion.....a result of the Shoreham incident and CAA rules ? it's at the stage now when not just enthusiasts but the 'general public' need binoculars ! I always find European shows better personally.
