Love it when they play Nessun Dorma at the end.

The Reds should use music as the general public don't want to hear shouting they don't understand.

I personally quite like the shouting as nearly all the displays have music through them along with some commentary.

Always remember Red 1 humming the American national anthem "pretty badly" as they came into land at Mildenhall 😂

I really think you may have misjudged public opinion there, don't they use Queen anymore?

We're back this week with our first big static update from a European Air Arm. The German Air Force have confirmed they will be providing six aircraft! The list comprises two Tornados, three Eurofighter EF2000s and an Airbus A400M.

It wasn't listed on their aircraft section under Germany.. Only on the update write-up. I assume a website error.

They are not allowed to do dynamic display. Only at ILA and some local open base days.

I know they aren't flying in the display ! Just seeing them arriving and departing is good enough for me.

Do you know the reason they are not allowed to do a dynamic display?

A great update this Friday
Flying Display Aircraft Confirmation - Happy Friday!
We have just received the letter to confirm that ‘Team Daedalus’ from the Hellenic Air Force will be taking part in the flying display for the first time at RIAT 2019.

The team flies the T-6A Texan II, a training aircraft and was first established in 2005. We look forward to welcoming Team Daedalus to the Air Tattoo in July!
