Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2019 Discussion Thread

As I said elsewhere. BA has a history at RIAT. Both Concorde and the A380 have flown there. If nothing else, it will be a lasting memory of an aircraft that will soon be gone from our skies. I get people want the fast jets, but its just a flypast. Not like it will be taking up a 30 minute segment of...

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2019 Discussion Thread

According to a post by 'Vador' on his social media, the current plan is to have the D-Day striped F16s joining him at RIAT. That's about 3 weeks old that news. The news on the other F16s, yes that was made about 3 weeks ago. Not about which F16s would be there. The D-Day striped F16 news is pretty ...

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2019 Discussion Thread

I didn't get to RIAT last summer, but the C27 display seemed very tame on the DVD. I saw it in 2017 at RIAT and it was incredible! Hopefully a return to the 2017 style display.

Cracking update today!

What's Duxford like for stalls? I am hoping to (and my bank account isn't) to get quite a few models.

Re: Duxford Air Festival 25th - 26th May 2019

Couple of quick questions regarding the show. 1. Does the standard ticket including admission to IWM or do you have to pay extra ?. 2. Where is the display line and display centre located. I have tried looking for a map online and can not find one. thanks Kevin There is a showground map on this lin...

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2019 Discussion Thread

i never get those who complain all the time. We only have seaside shows in NI so to have a show like RIAT just across the water with the worlds military hardware each year is something fantastic for me. You just won't see anything like it anywhere else here. I still love my seaside shows, but even t...

Great boost to the static line. AT-6B Wolverine, Gloster Meteor T.7 & the M-346 ae the highlights for me.

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2019 Discussion Thread

Nice update. 7 Jets, can't go wrong with that!

Not seen them before, but will see them at Duxford for the first time in May. So will see them 4 times by the end of the summer.

Nice boost to the static, though not overly bothered by them. Merlin is the only one that stands out for me today.
