Weather Report

The weather over the weekend was highly variable. Mostly cloudy and dull in the morning and breaking up a bit in the afternoon. The clouds on Sunday morning were especially dark and produced a bit of rain mid-morning.

Highlights

The European debut of the F-35 was the highlight of the show, with both F-35A and F-35B variants in attendance and flying on all three days. Other highlights included the F-22 Raptor display, the long overdue attendance of the Polish F-16s and the final display season of the Ramex Delta team. Many aircraft featured special paint schemes, including the Greek F-16, Polish MiG-29, Ramex Delta lead Mirage 2000 and a number of aircraft in the static park, (Luftwaffe Typhoons, Belgian F-16, Pakistani C-130 etc).

This was the second show under the leadership of Andy Armstrong, since he took over from RIAT founder Tim Prince in 2014. Judging by his first two shows, the RIAT is in safe hands.

List of prize winners to be added.

Flying Programme

To be added.

The planned flying programme is shown above. Sunday weather limited the early part of programme. The Turkish F-16 and Patrouille Suisse were only able to taxi along the runway due to the cloud base being below their display minima.
