Re: RAF Cosford Airshow 2020 - Sunday 14th June 2020

Hoping for a September / October 2020 so we still get one decent air show this year although I fear you’re correct.

Judging by ADSB Valley, Shawbury, Mildenhall, Brize Norton and Cranwell are all flying or have flown today.

Re: Question regarding pilots oxygen masks?

I may be wrong but in the case of the F-35 I think the helmets and therefore masks are bespoke to each pilot?

Parking info

I’m planning on coming down next Tuesday providing we’re not all on house-arrest. I’ve been looking at a few viewing guides and it appears the 27 end runway near Whelsford is the best location for spotting but looking at google maps it seems there is no parking at all around that area, all double ye...

Re: 50 New Apaches for British Army

New is not quite the right word as they are the original AH-64D's reworked to AH-64E standard. And to keep the number crunchers happy they will re-appear with "new" serials. Are they existing UK aircraft that are being reworked or are they 50 additional aircraft? If additional, are they ex US models?

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2020 Discussion Thread

I think its pretty much nailed on that RIAT will be cancelled given what's happening in other countries regarding large gathering etc. Personally i cannot envisage a situation where Germany Spain Italy etc send aircrews to the show. Even thought 90% is open air there are various choke point re queu...

Re: Rumours of Tom Cruise appearing at RIAT

It doesn’t like heat? Wuhan is hardly Antarctica... If we follow a similar process that a number of other countries are in cancelling / temporarily banning events or gatherings of more than 1,000 people then it is inevitable RIAT will be cancelled. Don’t get me wrong I’m still getting tickets and pl...

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2020 Discussion Thread

To be fair, the Wildcat display at Southport was a decent display. They used pyrotechnics in their display but not to the extent of the Apache display.

This week we received great news from the Royal Navy. They will be sending examples of all their aircraft types for static display at RIAT 2020!
Static F-35B then? :huh:
