Nice touch & go...

No F35s :-)
Plenty of space in display schedule and a triangular space on the ground. Come on RIAT you know you can do it :-)

Not going to happen with the show opening tomorrow..

Of course there would have been a chance if they had got on the phone last Friday when it was apparent DAVE was grounded...

Too much humble pie to be consumed I think.

I wonder how many of their staff will be asked "When is the F35 displaying? - Oh it's not coming - what have you replaced it with?"

Nice weekend off for me then...
I'll never give up on the dream!

I was there on Friday and they talked at length about the Apache & Chinook issues that prevented them displaying and how they were filling the gap with some interesting arrivals....... Never mentioned an F35 sized gap in the display.
I was about to draft a letter of complaint about the Pits day and cost when the Reds came on and were at their imperious best. Worth the fee on their own. (Just as well coz the rest of the display was average at best.)
I shifted my Saturday tickets on Tuesday evening via Ebay and there were so many people still looking for tickets I was stunned.

It was nice to see the Poseidon, but the exchange officer I spoke with was very hopeful of a Nimrod replacement.
The P8 uses the mainframe of the Boeing 737/800 but due to their assignments, and the fact that winglets cannot be de-iced, these wings are modified 787 wings.
I said "no more passwords" and look what happened!
