Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2019 Discussion Thread

I understand low level clouds as it affects visibility but do you think an 18 mph wind speed could stop the display from going ahead ?

Glad Im going tomorrow

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2019 Discussion Thread

It looks like it's rain Fri PM and heavy rain on Fri night which means the grass will be soaking wet on sat and it's light rain for the while day. May need some wellies !

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2019 Discussion Thread

Rain and thunderstorms predicted for Fri and Sat. Wonder if that will affect the flying displays or lead to any cancellations? Or if they'll say postpone the flying to a later time so start at 12 rather than 10

For those Sunday moaners about the lack of content, RIAT has now rescheduled some of the flying to be shown on Fri/Sunday only and NOT Sat to keep them happy. These are RAF Tucano T1 RAF Tutor T1 Italian CJ27 Spartan Italian T346 A Happy now ? Not overly fussed by the first two, but adored the 2017...

Mini role demo for the F35 Indeed @Ian_Gale. All being well, our F35B “role demo” @airtattoo will involve fast and slow passes, finishing with a decel to hover and pedal turn, before then returning to @RAF_Marham. Should be a great sight for all, and superb opportunity for photos. Great, where did ...

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2019 Discussion Thread

People would be mad not to get Saturday tickets. As in previous years, air arms around the world are likely to display on Sat where there are more people than Sunday. Also their primary functions are not airshows for entertainment, they have operational commitments too.

Unpopular Opinion: RIAT 2019 is shaping up better than 2018 - Certainly in the flying display aspects. :pop: Absolutely agree! The variety seems fantastic with not many repeat airframes on the flying schedule. Sure, there's a few 'filler' acts but despite getting there for opening time, I always fi...

I struggle to find excitement in this update, but I'm already buzzing with the thought of harriers, su27 and a mig21 sharing the same air over fairford. That's the whole show for me, but I still think they've got an ace up their sleave...... They might hold the best stuff for last minute announceme...

And DBH are probably still finalising their details. I agree it is a meh update but good to see the RAF sending more for the static.

So it seems like we won't be getting a Mig-29 or SU-22 from Poland as I have heard that the Migs are still grounded and the SU-22s are now grounded too :'( Pity as they would have made an already looking great show even better...I think the days of the Migs are getting behind us now, just hope the ...

Surprised with 6 weeks to go Riat hasn't confirmed the French aerobatic team even thought they've self confirmed months ago

Seem to be a lot of static this year but not enough flying
