The Star-Spangled RIAT

Post by JonoUK » Thu Aug 10, 2017 7:43 pm

Hi All,

So RIAT has once again come and gone, after months of hype it feels like it would be an impossible task to live up to expectations but RIAT 2017 was by far the best one I have attended so far, granted I have only been going in recent years. The show was supported very well other than by the weather, but this is often the case in that part of the world, It did return some great stormy skies though. There were so many highlights where on any given year a lot of the acts would have been the star of the show. Here's what I managed to capture from the event.

Superb set of pictures, I really like the Mustang, and the close up of the A400. But really with such a great set it is a hard job to choose.

Really superb work. Shot 31 stands out for me - something about the Mirage 2000.
