Participation List underway!

Well it's been a couple of months since the RIAT blog was last updated, and in the meantime the first news of participants has been breaking, so a chance to update on here...

The first confirmed act was a rare Cold War fighter from the Romanian Air Force, who have agreed to send over a couple of Mig 21 "Lancers" to the show which is a great coup for the RIAT Team. One of the aircraft will take part in the flying display, whilst the other will sit in the Static Park.

The "Lancer" looks set to leave military service in 2012, but is still used as NATO cover for Lithuania, Estonia, and Latvia.

The Swiss national display team, the Patrouille Suisse are set to grace the skies over Gloucestershire in July, aswell as the P3 Flyers, who are set to send 4 of their Pilatus P3's over to display.

It is hoped that the Boing 757-200 from the New Zealand Air Force will return for a second successive year following an impressive display last year at RIAT.

It would certainly be another great chance for the public to see what was a truly great display in 2009.

There will I'm sure be further additions in the not too distant future as the countdown continues to the greatest military airshow in the world!
