Doesn't seem as if Fairford received any priority screening. Good luck anyway.

I'm afraid no priority. Only for large civil airshows like Paris.

Cheers

And how about EAA Airventure? it is a mega-airshow if not one of the largest by volume. And a related question: how do you know what at an airshow is priority, or is it for you to decide? For example, I might shoot say a very rare aircraft and then a typical Cessna 172 both at the same event. If an air show qualifies as priority does that mean all planes that participate in it?

As much as I crack on France, I think the Paris Airshow is the ONLY show that should get priority screening. It's a monstrous event that nothing comes close to in civil aviaiton.

.... like Farnborough perhaps?  Wink

Seems the priority that was alluded to for RIAT2005 has not materialised either! Oh well!

I think the following air shows should at least be considered or given priority screening:

1. Paris
2. Farnborough
3. NBAA (New Orleans 2005)
4. Dubai
5. Moscow (if still held)

All others are nice, but really nothing new and exciting. Paint schemes from military air shows can probably be requested on a as per basis...

That'd be my two cents...

You guys are missing the point. Who says priority airshows have to be only about **new** planes???? The 5 listed above are manufacturers showcases for new planes. There have been many historic moments in the 101 years of aviation. The A380 will be around for 20 or 30 more years. Some other planes won't. And I guarantee you that some of the advances made on some of the experimental planes of today will find their way onto commercial airliners in the future.

About 70 years ago someone once said it was ridiculous to even think of putting 3 engines on an aircraft when they saw a Ford Tri-motor. Think about that next time you go for a ride on a DC10 or MD-11.

Quoting Bruce (Reply 8):

I don't think you understand what the point of a priority upload is. It's for new and extra special things. Not old planes that have been around for a while that did a special trick or have a smal new feature.
