Last Summers RIAT was a bit special, that Vulcan takeoff on the Saturday, The Japanese in their Kawasaki P1’s (We should have opted for these!), the first visit of Ramex Delta amongst the highlights.
Saturday was by far the best day weather wise and I spent all day in the FRIAT grandstand, Sunday morning however was spent wondering the couple of miles of the static display.
Using the Fuji X20, i manged to get down low and get some interesting angles, as you can see above.
For me the star of the static was the MBB Bo105 that looked like it had been on MTV’s “Pimp my Ride”. It was great to get so close to the Hawgs and see how dented their noses get from air2air refuelling.
A really good weekend and I can’t wait the 150 odd days to this years show in July.
