As every year, after RIAT we said "that's the last RIAT for us".  And then panic-booked RIAT again...

So RIAT week sandwiched between the Loop.

Other than that, the big Duxford D-Day fly-out in early June has over 40 Dakotas booked so that might be worth a daytrip.

Will probably skip the local beach-shows again and do the wee fly-ins instead.

Mach Loop is on my bucket list.

I've probably said before, but since I started going over to England for RIAT, Cosford etc, I don't get excited as much by Newcastle & Portrush. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy them greatly. But nothing a seaside show can do, can come close to the big shows.

RIAT Announced Spanish Harrier today :D

Up until today I was going to

Yeovilton & Flying Legends
Newcastle depending on lineup
Airwaves depending on lineup

Now I'm looking to add RIAT and Shuttleworth Evening airshow into that after the Spanish Harrier was confirmed for RIAT. This could be my only chance to see one display
