RIAT 2018 show days

Post by shaggy22 »

For the first time RIAT this year was a 3 full day show of 8 or so hours, also on this day a special RAF tribute was organised, however the great British weather reared it's ugly head & just before the RAF 100 flypast was meant to be forming up a thunderstorm developed over the area, Fairford itself was spared the worst but the formation area was smack in the middle so it was cancelled sadly. This is from the Friday

Day 2 of 3 from RIAT & this time the weather was back to what it has been all summer here really, plenty of sunshine & big fluffy clouds. This includes a surprise visit & flypast from a USAF B-2 & the RAF BBMF Trenchard plus formation as well as a 617Sqn tribute of the Lancaster, Tornado GR4 & F-35B, all of which were just superb but for me the 617Sqn tribute really was special. It will most likely be the last time I'll see an RAF Tornado before they are shortly retired.

Final show day, even better weather this time around & with a couple of departures to Farnborough to boot. I've added a few of the static as well that I didn't get to see arrive like the MQ-9B, made the first ever transatlantic flight by a drone to make it to the show, an RAAF E-7, RAF RC-135W, USAF HC-130P/N, HH-60G, RCAF CH-146 & a few others I like.
