To be fair it probably will because small minded people will see this an an opportunity to attack RIAT for 'only' having them on static (which in itself is a majour coup) instead of giving praise to the Cosford team for seeing the opportunity and getting in dilect with the USAF about the possibility of the flypasts when the bombers are RTB to Fairford. Stunning work by the Cosford team :thumbs:

They've been out early all week and RTB Fairford around 2.30-3.00 so if they do the flypast on route back to Fairford then they will maybe do the Cosford flypast around 2.00-2.30..

That could be completely off though as its merely guess work :thumbs:

B-1 between 2 and 3 local. Not sure on the B-52.
