Well I missed the opportunity to see an f22. When it was over here in the UK I was in my partying stage of life and airshows weren't on the top of my
lists of things to do. Trying to attend RAF fairford this year get you guys some pics of the f35
Looks like the July 4th flyover won't happen now. Three of the four heading over are at Pax River, but the RAF bird is still on the ground at Eglin,
no word why. They'll need 36 hours to ready it before crossing once it arrives at the River.
Most of the inspections are done. There was a chance of the UK F-35 departing Eglin today for Pax River. They have until tomorrow to leave and still
perform at the shows. There are five that will depart Pax River, I assume that two are flying spares.
Both of these are on my bucket list, along with Paris. I'm hoping they'll make it over, and our UK members will get some good pics of them. But
they're saying that the engine problem that started the grounding may be worse than they thought. They were about done with inspections today, and
the ones heading over may leave tomorrow. If they don't, they won't make the shows.

Seagull I'm attending the show on Sunday, I'll have 3 cameras. I'll post the snaps after the weekend has been with or without the f35. I'll make a
thread but it may be in the non conspiracy forums of ats though. Keep your eyes pealed
F35 related question, if it's a no show for the plane this weekend would this cause any problems with nations regarding the sale of the aircraft

Lol if the f35 DOES show then there will be pics so no one can say it didn't happen. The way things are going I might have to photoshop an f35 into
my air show pics lol. I've still been trying to sort out an old VHS video cassette that we have from back in 1993 when we witnessed two MiG 29s
crashed (both pilots ejected). Once that is on a format which I can use for a computer Ill post that somewhere too.
I was 8 years old in 1993 .. So seeing two planes collide was awesome and terrifying at the same time
