Big civilian update today....Gloster Meteor T.7 the stand out one for me and if the AT-6B Wolverine that is the picture on the confirmed aircraft list turns up that would be cool, The rest I'm not to fussed about but I am sure they will please a few who just like aircraft but not for my liking.

Still a while to go but still got the Italian's, French, Romanian and Finnish to be added that have self confirmed and surely the Yanks will send something as they usually do......Still hoping for the Polish Mig-29, SU-22 Fitters and maybe their F-16 too seeing as there is only 1 in the display so far.

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

Not sure if the RAF Tucano is mentioned here that will do a flying display. If so i looked over it and you can delete this post.

On the Solo Turk calendar there are no overseas events shown, but all of July is blank at the moment, no dates what so ever.

The solo Turks schedule is made up of all Turkish airshows so I'd assume that it is staying in Turkey, perhaps its not doing any displays in july? It will be very sad if it doesn't go to RIAT. just read back through the thread and it seems that a lot of people have said it wont be going.

I'll be happy with any F-16 display. Turkish or not.
