I assume you mean 'Thursday Arrivals' as Friday was a full show day.
Right...Whoops. Agreed 2018 will most likely never be repeated...but from the standpoint of someone from North America, even a weaker RIAT is probably the best Airshow they'll have ever seen.

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) 2020

I'm slowly starting to plan my dream trip, going to RIAT in 2021. I would like to know your experiences to organize this kind of trip. I took a lot of information from the RIAT official website, but I would like to know if you know websites or blogs of people who tell their stories about RIAT and h...

Re: The Great Pacific Airshow 2020

Hearing the Brazilian Smoke Squadron Team might be attending this one.

They've already been listed as performers at the Miramar show which takes place shortly after this one...Maybe a small US tour in the works?

Re: What International Shows Should I Keep In Mind?

I'd check out the Danish Airshow 2020 at Karup AB. This show is every 2nd year and rotates between the DAF's 3 major bases. They always seem to have a killer lineup, 2018 had SU-27, Typhoon, F16, F18, CF-104. I'd call it a "mini RIAT". Being located where it is handy for attracting performers from a...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2019

Has anyone heard when the Thunderbirds are expected to arrive? I'm aware of a possible practice Friday AM, but I'm also wondering if this means that a Thursday practice is unlikely. This could impact whether or not we can expect Huntington (+ Terminal ) to be cleared on Thursday. Thanks! Thunderbir...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2019

Thanks for the advice. Anyone know what the performers use as the showline? Is it east/west runway (Runway 07/25)? Or the taxiway that runs parallel to that? Or something different? Buzz Correct, the taxiway that runs parellel to 07/25 is the 1500 foot showline. There's also a 1000 and 500 foot sho...
