RIAT 13-15 July 2018 OFF-TOPIC

Post by Stratofreighter »

...another visitor who is/was rumoured to come to RIAT, perhaps only on the Friday.

Yes, his possible visit is being mentioned in some mainstream-media.

Apart from his policies and politics;
if only for the additional draconic security measures:
I really hope he stays well away from Fairford during RIAT :evil:

The possibility of Trump attending the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford,
which runs from July 13 to 15,
is now being discussed as an alternative entertainment.

I can assure you, you won't be disappointed!

It's always a fantastic show, line up this year is the best we've had for a few years now.

Shame all the US air forces have now been confirmed. I was hoping there'll be a few more to see if there's anymore flying planes

Looking forward to it. The flying Mig-21 is a 1st for me, funnily enough:-)

E-6B will hopefully be my 2nd frame!!
