Fantastic display today will upload my pictures elsewhere and let you guys know.

Thought I would were a special watch today as I expected Bremont to be in attendance.

Thinking about selling it though.

Did see the Bremont logo on a Blenheim. Will upload it when I find the pictures.

I'm there tomorrow. I am, however, going to be with that *other* large Swiss watch brand beginning with B!

Shame I missed you today! Hope you enjoyed the show - the Vulcan taking off was 'unique'!

Yes the other B had a large tent.

Static park excellent. Airshow sporadic. Vulcan was exceptional. Two wing overs - which resulted in him being upside down. A400m did something similar. Spitfire and Typhoon really good together. Impressed with solo Typhoon too.

Have a great day. Oh get in early, very busy.

Today was the 15th RIAT I've been too - probably the busiest I've seen it!
Martin, who was flying today, was a lot more gentle than Kev (who was flying '558 yesterday). Still got her inverted on one occasion, though!

Yep, I agree - sold out.

Last time I took part was in 1996 and its so different. Flight display quiet in comparison and the static park good but nothing like it was.

Still a good day out though.

Totally agree re. the static - gone are the days of multiple B52/B1 on static. Shame.
Saying that, thought, the Japanese P1 was nice to see flying and static!

I went on the Friday, and although the display was a lot shorter the crowds were much better as was the traffic. I'll certainly go again on a Friday next year if most of the 'good' stuff is displaying.

Only time wearing a B is acceptable, especially as it gains you free bottle of Peroni . I didnt go this year even though I was around Swindon on Fri and Sun. I was hugely disappointed last year. Not been the same since our American friends stopped attending in force.
Great weather though and pleased to read you all enjoyed.

Well, a Peroni was 2 tokens! They wouldn't even let you keep the lanyard...

This is it - they've allowed you to keep them every other year, just not this year. Profit margins must be shrinking...

Great photos, Jerry! That 120 degree wingover from the A400 is certainly a spectacle! I'm sad the C27J wasn't flying this year - that is always flown like a FJ!
