Comment - RIAT is such a huge event that extends several days around the show days so when we just attend for one day it is very difficult to do it justice! This year we went on the Saturday and were greeted YET AGAIN but mostly dull grey skies, which is just so frustrating but seemingly it for RIAT for me every time! The sun did make more of an appearance than usual which did uplift some of the images but overall, a bit disappointing on that front. Highlight had to be the Romanian Air Force MiG-21 LanceR C.  Seeing this classic cold war shape for the first time as the pilot plugged the burner and tore up the RIAT skies was a real classic moment.

Many more classic moments followed including the British Airways BOAC schemed Boeing 747 making two formation passes (in sunlight!!) with the Red Arrows which was simply stunning. No less than two Spanish Navy EAV-8B Harrier IIs were in the flying program providing a welcome ‘Harrier fix,’ especially for UK enthusiasts who have still not accepted the heinous crime that saw the Harrier Force axed while still in its prime. Another unique formation saw the Red Arrows make two passes leading the Patrouille de France which was great to see.

Fast jet heavy metal was well catered for with F/A-18C Hornets from Switzerland and Finland breaking up the normal supply of F-16 Vipers. Another piece of Russian hardware stole the excitement levels as the Ukrainian Air Force’s massive Su27P Flanker again graced the Gloucestershire skies and it is a real treat to see this machine in the flesh.
