RIAT 2018

A disappointing show this year - nothing really very interesting and the fight by the new F35 was very uninspiring!

Duxford Air Festival 2018

A disappointing show at Duxford - not many interesting aircraft, long gaps between displays and all hampered by very hazy conditions. The Patrouille de France put on a very good display to close the show.

RIAT 2015

A great day at Fairford this year - varied and interesting aircraft and the weather was kind. And what a treat to see the Vulcan in formation with the Red Arrows. The French Display Team closed the show and made all the other teams, including the Reds, look like beginners!

What a fabulous sight...... Now that was close - distance not years!
