Booked a couple of tickets (my wife IS coming to this event - she likes fast, noisy jets!) for Saturday 18th - so, is anyone else planning to come along?

K-3 II, K-3 and a K-70 from SRS (having now relegated the K-30 with the Hacked K-50 f/w to being a backup body) , & some Sigma and Pentax lenses (and a lot of old 35mm gear!)

Yup I will be there Saturday and Sunday (weather permitting) but I don't go into the actual show.
No equipment list here but thanks for taking an interest. My Flickr

I looked at the flying displays on all the days, and found that the Friday programme is far less comprehensive than the other days (e.g. the Vulcan is not flying) and so I chose Saturday because we are going on holiday in the middle of the following week, and so Sunday would not be a good idea.

No XH558 on Friday????? I was planning on travelling to North Wales after the display on Friday, so now I am wondering....

I'm there from Friday morning to Monday afternoon. Camping nearby.

I'm secretly hoping (well not so secret now!) that the USAF will send their F22 raptor display. They don't have another published commitment that weekend and the RIAT website says they are still negotiating with USAF...

The Fighter Control website RIAT forum should also be a good place to keep up-to-date - but nothing new on the F22 situation yet
