The problem with RIAT is that it's attended by an odd bunch. ;)

Dependant on work this summer (currently nill, but I am working on this) I would like to get to the Friday arrivals and practice. Based on last year, we parked at 'Fly by Night' camping (I think), paid the £5 parking fee, then walked the 250m to the end of the runway. Throughly good view, room for a chair and a brolly when the rain came. Would do it again.

I think the day ticket price is just out of my/our league this summer. Its just too hard to justify over a hundred quid for a day out - and taking Matthew would be 'difficult' at best. Smaller shows we can just about manage, the bigger ones will have to wait a few years.

I was ready to add my name for Sunday as the tickets were going to be ordered on Friday when I get paid, but I was made redundant again yesterday! :((

Maybe I'll see you all there next year instead....................

What is now made even worse by the fact they've gone and added the RAPTOR to the flying displays! Now I'm miffed to say the least! ~x(

RAPTOR SET FOR RAPTUROUS AIR TATTOO RETURN
It's a case of 'second time lucky' for one of the world's newest and most exciting jet fighters!

It's a case of 'second time lucky' for one of the world's newest and most exciting jet fighters when it makes a welcome return to the Cotswolds this summer – two years after its planned UK debut appearance was rained off.


Now the aircraft, from the US Air Combat Command, will be returning to the Air Tattoo on July 17&18 to demonstrate why it is capable of outperforming any existing fighter aircraft in air-to-air combat. The Raptor represents a new generation of fighter aircraft incorporating state-of-the-art stealth technology, sophisticated weaponry and vectored thrust giving it an unrivalled combination of secrecy, power and manoeuvrability.

Air Tattoo Deputy Director of Air Operations Robert Windsor said he was delighted to see the aircraft return to perform at the Air Tattoo.

He said: "The Raptor is one of the jewels in the crown of military aviation and its display in July will be among the highlights of the seven-and-a-half-hour flying display. I recall that the pilot and his ground crew were tremendously friendly and professional throughout their stay with us – despite their obvious disappointment. I am really pleased that they will finally be able to perform for our large and appreciative Air Tattoo audience!"


Thanks chaps/chapettes, at least i'll have more time back on here now. I've been hiding in the background a little too much lately as works had me so busy.
