That has gone a good way to re-addressing the Saturday/Sunday balance to be fair to DBH. It's a shame not to see everything, but at least there's no one day standing out as the best now.

With just over a week to go until the start of the 2019 Air Tattoo we're back with another addition to our NATO flypasts! The French Air Force will be providing a KC-135R tanker to the already announced line up, which you can read about here.
The French Navy also confirms an Embraer Emb-121 Xingu on static display.

A400M and the Blades to perform a flypast on Sunday to mark Airbus' 50th anniversary (so 4/5 of the aircraft aren't Airbus made, but no matter...)

This smacks entirely of just staging a flypast for the sake of it, not because it's potent or worthwhile or impressive, but just to make Sunday look more equal to the other days on paper. One wonders how many other things they had to try before finally settling with that.

Credible rumours following the Yeovilton show today that the Spanish Navy Harrier pair will only be a singleton on Sunday. Another huge kick in the teeth if true.

Slovenian PC-9 (flying and static) and Let-401 (static) cancelled.

NATO E-3A (flypast) may go the same way as it had to turn back to base, allegedly due to technical problems, but they are expected to try again tomorrow.

One Spanish Navy Harrier (flying) had a small brake fire on landing. Fingers crossed it doesn't impede on the display.

Three Belgian F-16s will open the Saturday show with a flypast.
