It was saying dry and cloudy the other day for saturday with little wind.

Saw the Thunder for Sunday.

But as an air-show go'er for 37 years, the best weather forecast is to look out the window on the day (and not even that is certain)

As Jason said, literally 2 days ago it was sunny and partly cloudy :S

See what it is on the day :thumbs:

Needs to be taken with a big pinch of salt this far out, but Accuweather long range forecast is not looking good :O :'( it will likely change in the next update but as of now rain, thunder and up to 52km wind gusts :'( , Weather Outlook looking a lot more favourable
Never found Accuweather to be any good, in contradiction to their name.

Don’t worry about it until next Sunday nights Countryfile forecast.

I still find the Met Office to be more accurate than Meteo as used by BBC.

Being that they can't even get tomorrow's weather right, I don't think I'll worry too much yet! :D

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.

If people put this into google translate it says that the Danish special painted F-16 will be at Fairford for the 20th July.

https://www2.forsvaret.dk/nyheder/natio ... tigen.aspx

Let’s hope it is being based at Fairford. Can’t imagine it would fly all the way to and from Denmark for the flypast.

How awesome would it be to see the F-35 hover in between the 2 Harriers?

I do feel sorry for the Sunday only people but who knows if DBH do announce the 2 flypasts they said they were trying to organise then it might even itself out.....Glad I go for the full week that way you don't miss anything.

Sunday only here... It's reet, Riat will be wall to wall F35's soon enough. Saw the first display a couple of years back so although a little disappointing, no biggy really!!

A red and white F16 would look nice

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 ?

I don't think they have just moved those acts to Sunday to "please Sunday" people...

And I don't think they'd be ecstatic about those being moved to Sunday ;) :lol:

Not overly fussed by the first two, but adored the 2017 Spartan display and the 2017/18 T-346 displays. Feeling a little sad as Saturday ticket holder! :whistle:

Hopefully either they're freeing up space to bring in something ridiculously good on Saturday or there's been issues with a flypast on the Sunday and they're having to fill!

I wanted to see the T346A trainer. Same thing happened last year, they moved it to a sun, don't know why.

This year like you said hope they'll be something incredibly good as they have space now but doubt it as it's so near the show or its just to satisfy those Sunday complainers
