In case anyone was interested, RAF Fairford was also the emergency landing site for the space shuttle.

Yeah, it's not too long. They get their own route in on Saturday and Sunday so avoid the traffic queues.

Got my Sunday tickets, still waiting on Friday and Saturday.

Weirdly, there is no download option in my account section of RIAT website this year.

Yes I have just seen an email for FRIAT tickets too, I thought FRIAT members got sent a pack with everything they need in it?

It would have been nice for them to inform us about what was happening regarding tickets this year, What's the point in having a members area on the website if nothing gets uploaded with details of what's going to happen with tickets and other information?

In the past, you usually get your vouchers sent out with your FRIAT pass. Then, you exchange it at a stall on entrance to get your programme.

Wonder if it is changing this year?

I'm still waiting to receive the password to access that - though seems I'm not missing out.

Starting this week with more F-16s for our 'Viper Line' static display as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the type at RIAT 2024! We're very excited to be welcoming a pair of F-16s from Portugal to RIAT; the first time since 2006 we've seen their jets at the show. In addition to the Vipers, the Portuguese Air Force is also sending their new Embraer KC-390 transport aircraft to RIAT for the first time, for static display. Obrigado!

The Lithuanian Air Force will send a pair of aircraft to RIAT to join our NATO 75th Anniversary celebrations, both on static display. We're very excited to see their Mi-8 Hip helicopter coming across to RIAT for the first time in many years. In addition, they'll also send their C-27J Spartan.

Two interesting civilian aircraft added to the static display this week; a Finnish Vinka and Yugoslavian Kraguj. Both aircraft are now operated by private owners who'll be flying them to Fairford in July. The Vinka will be on static display as our memorial tribute to Perttu Karivalo, former member of the RIAT Flying Display Team and European Airshow Council Board member, who passed away in October.

The final addition to the static display this week, another C-17 Globemaster! This jet is coming from the multinational Heavy Airlift Wing, part of Strategic Airlift Capability based at Pápa Air Base in Hungary. The crew plan to have the aircraft open and available for tours throughout the weekend.

Also this week, we've continued our discussions with the Royal Navy, and Joint Helicopter Command, and are awaiting their formal confirmations of participation at RIAT. In addition, members of our team have this week attended a briefing to the Defence Attaché community in London on plans for RIAT 2024, and a number of fruitful conversations had to try and seek final confirmations of their nations' participating aircraft.

Portuguese Vipers, KC-390, a Lithuanian Hip - Nice! The static is starting to look fantastic, and some heavies too, nice one! :D :thumb:+

Counting 13 F-16's on Static for the Viper Line...Could be near to 20 if the Polish send one alongside the flying display (TBC) and hopefully something from Aviano/Spang, who've been known to send a couple before. Oh, and Morocco if that surfaces :cool:

Good solid update today cannot remember the last time I saw Portuguese Vipers so looking forward to seeing them and the KC-390 is brilliant.

Its starting to look like a very good static and flying display from what's been announced so far and still several updates to go :)

Hoping to get my tickets by tomorrow. The UK is 8 hours ahead of Los Angeles. And what happens if you do not get your tickets by Friday?
