RIAT 2018 Friday to Monday (final update 22/07)

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

Some of my favourite images from a very changeable day at Fairford that resulted in the RAF100 flypast being cancelled due to thunderstorms in the area.

Some fantastic and dynamic shots there, very nice to see all the types and countries that are there. I particularly like your pics of the F-35, the Swiss Hornet with retracting undercarriage, the Frecce Tricolori and the Ukrainian Flanker. Great stuff, hope the weather holds for the next few days. Thanks for sharing.

An nice set, mate . Clearly you were in the FRIAT stand? The Frecce shot in the smoke swirl stands out to me. :). Back on  Monday ......

Thanks for the kind words and "likes", chaps. The weather was much better today, with some interesting displays and a single high pass of a B-2 Spirit.

More great pics.

Seems every time I don't turn up a B-2 does! Looks like there were some nice formation fly pasts today, hopefully there will be some tomorrow as well.

Great set of photos.

So just have to enjoy through people’s photos.

Thanks for posting.

Thanks again everyone. I'm already back on the airfield and have decided not to go into the FRIAT grandstand to avoid getting "samey" images. It is already very warm!

Great photos.........One of my favorites was the Norwegian Historic Aviation Society Vampire Pair - I thought it a very nice touch that they have applied RAF markings to commemorate our Centenary Year.....Last saw them at the Sola-Stavanger Air Show eight years ago when they had just acquired the two-seater and they gave a great show at that event.

 

Thanks for sharing

Thanks Mark. I agree that it was a nice touch to put the Vampires in RAF markings for this year. Beautiful day at Fairford with some great displays. The Red Arrows are displaying at the moment, so I'm resting my legs!

Great pictures mate!

 

I was there yesterday myself, my iPhone pictures aren't quite up to your standard! Love the shots of the F-35 and Su-27.

 

Cheers

Well thank you for all of that.😀

Some nice stuff and you have some good 'reach' with your lens there, something I don't have. 😪

 

I was there Friday and was also able to cool down in the rain. :D Saturday I was at a farm for a family get together and party outside just up the road from Fairford and the above three sets of aircraft flew low and slow over us. Thank you for posting so I can confirm it wasn't my imagination. 😁 

 

Erm.. I may post some of mine in a separate thread later if you're interested. It's been a while since I did.

Thanks Ridgerunner. Now that I'm home, I've just been looking at today's departure shots. I think I enjoyed today more than the show days!!

These are a great set of pictures, mine are nowhere near as good, and I look forward to seeing the ones from the departure day.

It was a good show but I can't help feeling that it has a limited life span as there will only be F-35's, Typhoon's and drones in a few years time. Unavoidable but not something to look forward to.
