Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2019 Discussion Thread

Over twice as many aircraft in static and 40 odd displays with a lot of fast jets so will be noisy at least.lol

I used to go every year but just cant be bothered anymore.Age is catching up with me.

Re: Trump Visit

Last year the helo,s arrived early and did practice runs so if using MDH would then need to reposition to Northolt.Not sure if the base has the security available due to the work going on to be able to cope.Maybe send Trump a tweet and ask him.lol

Most stuff goes into Farnborough or Luton now anyway.Think they got fed up with the reduced operating hours and buggerred off.Be interesting to see what happens when it reopens if operating hours will be increased and weekend operations again.Not holding my breath though
