RIAT from FRIAT (mostly) Pic heavy

Post by shaggy22 »

These are from Wednesday & Thursday at RIAT this year. The ones taken on the Wednesday were taken from the western Park & View. I'll update this thread accordingly when I've edited them properly. As usual more on my flickr site if anyone is interested, enjoy

Good shots Dan.

I liked the 'special scheme' on the C-160. It must have taken ages to get that effect.

Cheers, the camera sensor is even more disgusting than it looks, especially when the shutter speed is low. I normally edit them out, must have missed them. I blame the heat :D

I think the "rustic" effect could catch on :D

These are from the friday arrivals & practices:

If you look very carefully under the engine there is an upside down tin hanging by a piece of string catching oil. Can't beat a good bodge job

What amazes me is to think that we have AI models (quality ones at that) of nearly every single aircraft in your pics Dan.

We're so spoiled these days!

Can't argue with that. Sunday's display was epic, best fast jet demo I've seen for a long time. I voted for it to win the "as the crow flies" trophy. I was clearly in a minority though

Last set I promise. These are from sunday, weather was exactly the same except it cleared up much earlier this time. Monday is departures day in which it was really hazy for most of the day.

Sunday:

This is the sole American aircraft that showed up overnight. Apart from the broken U2 in the hangar which we never saw.

Now wouldn't it be great if the BBMF was expanded to encompass the Vulcan and the Canberra, but that is not going to happen in these belt tightening times.

The Canberra is forming it's own display team apparently called the Mid Air Squadron (unfortunate name) with two Hunters. That will be good to see if it comes off :D
