You got to love the 8 spinning propellers part of the email :lol: I mean there was more spinning last year with the BBMF trenchard formation.
In the good old days, one Shackleton could muster '8 spinning propellers' all on its own.... :roll:

Indeed. And if RIAT could muster either one for a Sunday flypast, I imagine that all would be forgiven! :P

From the "Latest updates" page on the RIAT 2019 website, you'd think that the people in DBH that are being paid to do a marketing job could at least get the year correct!

They are probably more interested in getting the prices right than the date :Oops:

Where did you hear this mate? Not good for Sunday people again, Still 1 Harrier is better than no Harriers.

The organisers need to organise the event better than this for next year. Friday people get half an Air Show and restricted access to the static.( Don't think a voucher to spend at the Air Tattoo store is the answer to compensate) and Sunday people appear to be getting seriously short changed. The flying attractions should be much more evenly distributed throughout the weekend.

Cheers

Just do away with Friday and just stick to arrivals and PDA (if necessary). Show days sat/sun only. It always worked that way.

Rain and thunderstorms predicted for Fri and Sat. Wonder if that will affect the flying displays or lead to any cancellations? Or if they'll say postpone the flying to a later time so start at 12 rather than 10

Interesting. Met Office suggests Saturday will be largely dry, with sunny intervals.

UKAR :roll: I will believe it when I see it Sunday. On RIAT's site, the duo are down to display Fri, Sat & Sun. Wouldn't be surprised if it's a windup. :@

They wouldn't cancel a week in advance. Weather changes daily, even hourly. You will see what happens on the day, as all crew/display pilots will make a call on the day, as to if they will display.

Met Office only showing 50-60% chance of rain, nothing on storms. Saturday sunny and cloudy. Just wait and see what it is like when you get there. :thumb:

I'm sure there was a reason they had to make friday a public day, something to do with insurance and/or viewing practices/validations as actual displays IIRC.
