According to the RIAT Facebook page, the official camping pitches will go on sale mid Jan. There was a few issues with the site last year. Not as bad as some people made out. Will be booking again

Might be cheaper to fly back to NI.. then fly back out to Bristol RIAT weekend and stay for the weekend rather than adding on a full week.

Brilliant update!! Not seen one fly in nearly 20 years.

That's looking like the plan although going to fly into BHX or STN go to Shuttleworth on Sat evening then RIAT Sunday and Monday.

Been to Shuttleworth on last two July evening airshows and loved them.

Great update. Never seen the F-18 Hornet fly. The Spanish display on Saturday of 2017 was reduced to a taxi run due to rain.

Also very excited about the Harrier :D Great start.
