Rapturous welcome ready for F22 at RIAT

Some big news broke last week on the official RIAT website, as it was confirmed that the F22 Raptor would be winging its way over to this year's Royal International Air Tattoo in July.

This follows it's brief appearance at the cancelled 2008 event where the rain ensured the public didn't get to see too much of the sleak looking fighter.

So, this year, is a case of take two, and hopefully the weather will play ball and allow us all to see the F22 in action, in what we hope will be blue skies in the Cotswolds.

This is certain to boost ticket sales further, and is the first US act to be confirmed for the event, now all we need is many more to follow, and this will be one of the most eagerly awaited RIAT's of all time, what with the Vulcan being saved at the last minute, let's hope that the likes of the B1, B2, and B52 will all be present at the air show, with maybe the C5 Galaxy thrown in for good measure, it would be great to see a list of heavyweights thrown in there!

The Red Arrows will certainly be at RIAT this year, with the confirmation now on their website, along with the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, also confirmed on their site too.

Just under 4 months to go now until the event of the year, and the excitement is certainly building.

Next update soon.
