RIAT 2018 - The Show Days

Post by James Cutting » Fri Oct 05, 2018 12:33 pm

Afternoon all! It is never too late for RIAT shots! :Oops: It's taken me a while, just like it did last year. But here we are again, 2018 was an absolutely cracking year in my opinion! Great weather, great aircraft and some fantastic shots :thumb: This thread will be purely for the show days, as my static thread went down very well, I will then post departure shots later. Friday was initially dark and gloomy with some rain, but Saturday and Sunday were much better. Hopefully, there aren't too many shots, so enjoy! :D (P.S - I have aimed to create a variety, and I know I haven't covered some brilliant acts - simply to keep the post size down, click on any photo to be directed to my RIAT Album, and have a further look)

I appreciate there is a lot of shots but if you looked through them - thank you. Constructive criticism is more than welcome - the light was actually tough and I hope I have edited them well. Cheers :thumb:

Hi James :P

Now you see them now you don't :P
Great set James, that Osprey looks vaguely familiar. :Wow:
Well taken and processed, like these and worth waiting for.
Have a good weekend mate.

Glad you liked them, definitely some of my favourites :thumbs:

Cheers, you too!
