- RAF Leuchars Airshow
Last year I’d have said the same about the Red Arrows as their display at RIAT was more or less the same as the last one I saw nearly 15 years ago.
And I would agree that the South Koreans are nutters. They do the same stunts and passes etc – just faster and with there eyes closed it seems lol.
However this year the Red Arrows seem to have upped their display and it was one of the best at RIAT.
Topped only by a backflipping hellichopper.Posted 4 years agofasthaggisMember
Maybe I’m tight, and having a poor time of things recently, but £80 for a family ticket! !
It seems a lot till you make it a full day with suitable a picnic Dave,just poppin in for a couple of hours isn’t good enough ,or you could take the picnic and crew to the lovely Tentsmuir and watch a lot of it from the beach for free 😉
quite a few flyboys showing off today 🙂Posted 4 years agocrazy-legsSubscriber
Went to Leuchars many years ago with the ex, great day out. Vulcan was there then, it did an amazing display. The Chinook was grounded though which was a shame.
Only thing I’d say is DON’T take the car! They reckoned on queues of 3hrs plus to leave the car park last time. We just walked the 5 mins to the station. 🙂 Also, as you’d expect, food & drink there cost a small fortune.Posted 4 years agoesselgruntfuttockMember

Went to Leuchars waay back in the 70’s when 111sqdn Phantoms were there & remember the commentator saying ‘if you look to your right you’ll see the two German F104’s coming in low & fast, theyr’e about five miles out now, keep looking’ About two seconds later they came in at about 150ft at something like 500 knots FROM THE LEFT & straight along the top of the crowd line. Everyone crapped themselves. The same thing happened with a Jaguar at another show.
Gone are the days when you’d get 10 or more different fast jet types at most shows plus there was always a Vulcan &/or a Victor.
Did I ever mention the four Vulcan scramble at Finningley in 1977? That was something I’ll never forget.
