I very much doubt you'll see many other additions next week... :wink:
I think there might be some more additions, but they might not have too much time updating the website next Thursday as at that moment arrivals are already taking place. Mind there were quite a number of aircraft at the static last year, that were never mentioned on the website.

If the F35 will be cancelled, I guess there will be some additions to compensate in the last update next week.

No F-35's will be at RIAT as all have been grounded due to technical issues, a F-35 caught fire recently.

The F-35B is cleared to fly, but the A and C models are not, which is precluding the RAF example from joining the the 3 USMC/VMFA-121 examples at Patuxent River for their transatlantic crossing.

The facts: Reuters reports the entire US-fleet is grounded. Preparations for Fairford and Farnborough are ongoing, but it seems very unlikely.

And of course, it is already a huge blow to Lockheed Martin's reputation.

Reportedly the Royal Navy had hoped to demonstrate the F-35 during the naming oh the HMS Queen Elisabeth today.

If the F-35B is going to fly at the Royal International Air Tattoo on July 11, then the four planes now at Naval Air Station Patuxent River probably need to take off no later than Tuesday morning. That would be cutting things very close, since the standard plan calls for the planes to have two days of maintenance and testing before flying again after their first trans-Atlantic crossing.

All Air Tattoo standard admission tickets must be bought in advance and are not available to purchase at the gate.
