RIAT 2017 Arrivals

Post by shaggy22 »

First of my RIAT threads for this year will cover the arrivals into the show mostly on the Wednesday & Thursday. There were some practices on these days but I'll save those for the show thread. I'll start with Wednesday arrivals, as you can probably make out it was pretty grotty to start with, the U-2 that departed at the start of the day was visible for all of 15 seconds before disappearing into the gloom. Another one arrived later in the day in pretty much perfect weather though

Great variety of aircraft you have there Dan! There are some really nice special schemes as well. We'll have to get you over here to Oshkosh one of these years!

Someone needs to go give that IS AT CV22 crew a tough time for flying around with USMC spare parts on the tail.
