....."They were hoping to get it uploaded on Friday"......

That maybe was a wrong choice of words on my behalf.

I am looking forward to the Tucano, and the Blades were fantastic at Duxford. I'm actually not to bothered by no Typhoon, it's gotten rather tame over the last few years and I didn't think it was overly great at Duxford. Kind of has been toned down since the fantastic display in 2015.

Rockwell Collins are again the main sponsor.

Yeah, it just exited out of a roll to the right. Seemed very unplanned. Usually its a vertical climb to finish the display.  Sunday's seemed more polished.

Wingwalkers have said they are coming to Ireland in a few weeks, I assume Newcastle. The Wingwalker ladies did say they were going to be in Ireland again soon after Bangor last weekend  when I spoke to them at Duxford ( and got a selfie with them :) )

The lineup is being revealed tomorrow. It is a pretty fun line up, mostly aerobatic displays and teams.

I am looking forward to the show, though it does contain quite a few of my favourites on the seaside circuit.

I can't see myself visiting any of the others either TBQH.  I mean, I know storage is cheap these days but there's only so many pics of the IAC CASA, the Canso and the Huey/Loach Combo I need in my life. 

Bray still looks to be the best option on the island for variety, but even it's tame this year and the cost of visiting it (with the Mrs. placating extras) would more than cover heading across the water for an exercise related base visit.

I priced Bray going down to Bray, and it was almost going to cost what it cost me to go to RIAT this year (until I added Pimms and Grandstand onto it)

Whilst it's a free show there's nothing of interest for me.  Is that the full line up. If so it's gonna be a short one

Not wishing to steal JasT1981`s thunder, but I don`t think there is anything more to announce other than what aircraft the IAC (if any) are sending.

Some sites are saying 4x PC-9s, some are saying a single PC-9, and some the Casa 235, and some don`t mention the IAC at all.

Big question is....when is the rain going to stop?

It's the AW139 and the CASA from the IAC.

There was mention of the Irish Aerobatic display team on the original press release which is now been removed. Quite a few, including myself thought it was the PC9s

4 more announcements to come that are not fully public yet. Wingwalkers, Global Stars, Irish Coast Guard S92 and Team Raven. Speculation is AerDynamics RV7 display team could be added and this was the Irish Aerobatic team mentioned.

Dakota will likely just fly in from England, display and head back to England.

Dakota is using Blackpool as a base tomorrow. So no stopping at Aldergrove. No word on Tucano

Absolutely brilliant day of flying. Wingwalkers were my favourite display. Global stars were popular with the family. As per usual everyone left after Red Arrows.

Without doubt the best airshow the NMD council have put on since merging with the old council of Down District who put on the shows pre-2015

To be honest, airshows in this country have become so boring, I just cannot bring myself to attend.

Prefer to nip up to Aldergrove these days if I want to see something up close. More action up there.

On the day of Newcastle, I got to see the Reds depart for the show. Got to see the new A320 NEO fly right over me, watched a Jet2 737 Classic, saw the Tucano depart for the show, and saw the reds fly right over me and do their usual vertical climb and shower over the airport, and then fly right over me one by one to land. All in the space of about an hour.

Can nip up any week and see the Virgin 747 coming in. Heck, it's done some nice flyovers of Belfast city some mornings. And thanks Virgin... You mostly now depart runway 25, turn to the south, and fly right over my house at a few thousand feet on your way to Orlando. So a nice view of it any Sat or Sun when the sky is clear enough.


Honestly, more action at home and our local airports.
