That's excellent news - but... on your website you list PAF as being at RIAT on Saturday only, here you say Sunday only? Hoping you're right here on the forum as I'm already sore from missing the Belgian F-16.

Edit - I see it is in fact Saturday only as they have a show in France on Sunday. I'm making an annoying habit of being at the same shows as PAF, but on the wrong day, which is very frustrating. Unless the Frecce Tricolori are doing Sunday only (sounds unlikely, but their schedule suggests they might) then the Sunday show's going to need something quite special to be added.

Finnish Gripen confirmed flying, which is a... rare catch. I guess that was a crossover between Swedish Gripen and Finnish F-18.

Also added too the static:
Slovenian PC-9
German Eurofighter
Another mystery Gripen

*Edit - Gripens are now confirmed to be Swedish

Breitling Jet Team now officially confirmed. The website lists them as a seven-ship so that's great.

NATO anniversary flypast featuring aircraft from the US, UK, Belgium, Germany and others confirmed for Friday and Saturday. Another kick in the teeth for Sunday-only visitors.
