If the Czechs are coming over for Yeovilton is there a chance they may stay on for the week and go to RIAT as well?

We’ll have to wait till tomorrow for this weeks announcement for RIAT, but fingers crossed! The Spaniards did it last year so you never know!

Copied from an update today:-
The Ultimate Fighters are bringing their magnificent four-warbird formation of Spitfire, Thunderbolt, Mustang and Buchón (licence built Me109) to RNAS Yeovilton on 11 July as part of the Royal Navy International Air Day’s VE Day 75 tribute. Equipped with these examples of leading WWII iconic combat aircraft, they fly through a thrilling and evocative blend of aerobatics, tail-chasing and dogfighting. Formed just last year, this highly acclaimed team is new to Air Day, but its Spitfire will make a homecoming of sorts, having been built by Westland (now Leonardo Helicopters) at nearby Yeovil in 1942.
Great update 2020 is looking even better, just hope its not canceled because of the latest health scare, which in my mind is being blown out of all proportion, more people die from flu each year.

Yeovilton IAD has always had a flair (the ability to do something well) for using flares (light using the combustion of a pyrotechnic composition) in its air-displays. Here endeth the lesson. ;)
