Re: 2020 US Navy Blue Angels Schedule

What are the odds of there being significant changes to the schedule, like we've seen with the ACC single-ship demo teams? Similarly (based on rumour only, there's no schedule yet) it sounds like the Red Arrows will be using the opportunity to drop in on several smaller shows which wouldn't normally...

Re: Airshow Action 2019 video series

The MiG-29s have 3-4 years before the Poles run out of parts and the Su-22s are due to be phased out in 2024. However, both fleets could be grounded at almost any time if any further incidents occur. I've been lucky to see the PoAF display each type, and I highly recommend both. Equally worth catchi...

Re: Iran Sets Up Aerobatic Team

It's astounding how crazy they are about copying other teams. @Adam found some great examples while researching! They've had mock Thunderbirds and Blue Angels in the past too. I just can't understand why they'd so directly rip off other teams, even the helmet design! What do they gain?? My thoughts...

Re: Corona virus, Covid-19 and airshows?

Paul - I want to help, I really do, and I do think this kind of market research into airshows generally is potentially very valuable. But I really, genuinely don't know how to answer for Question 5, which is arguably the key question, because I'm sure that most reasonable people will return to airsh...

Re: Corona virus, Covid-19 and airshows?

Flightline UK is conducting a survey to hear from the public about what they'd like to have back when aviation events get the green light as well as concerns surrounding COVID-19. https://www.air-shows.org.uk/2020/05/future-air-displays-public-appetite-survey/ I'm afraid I don't understand the poin...

Re: Belgian AF F-16 Solo Display Team New Paint Scheme For 2021-2023 Season

Don't get too excited yet, this is a concept design by an artist and nothing more. It's not even clear if it was made at the request of the Belgian Air Component, or made for fun, perhaps in the vague hope that it might catch on. The artist says it is "destined as a proposal to KB [Kleine Brogel, th...

Re: RAF Red Arrows to move to RAF Waddington

One question which you may know the answer to. The MOD have said the Red Arrows will continue to train using Scampton's airspace. How will this work if Scampton is redeveloped, as expected?

Re: Corona virus, Covid-19 and airshows?

This excellent article contains the best indication yet of what could be in store for UK airshows over the next few years, following a BADA panel discussion: https://www.airshows.co.uk/features/2020/uk-air-displays-looking-forward-to-recovery/ Key points: Emergency services are not currently in a po...
