Re: RIAT Friday - couple of clarifications, please

My first time at RIAT on the Saturday, enjoyed it immensely. Couldn't believe how lucky we were with the weather. I'm not familiar with the orientation of the airfield so am not sure which the 'North' side is. Is this over where the hangars are and all the display teams aircrafts were parked up. Wer...

Re: RIAT - The Navy's Here..!

Thanks for the kind comments. I do enjoy photographing the static items. By their very nature they don't move so I have a game chance of getting a decent snap..! I did take some flying shots but they as usual are OK, nothing to write home about. With so much going on it gets to be a bit of a trade o...

RIAT Saturday - Il Frecce Tricolori

One of the highlights for me on Saturday was the display by Il Freece Tricolori. A very lively and slick display accompanied by an excellent soundtrack which included the splendid Italian national anthem and Pavarotti. Certainly 'Nessun Dorma' whilst they performed... :) https://farm2.staticflickr.c...

Re: Additions and changes - Saturday

First time for me at RIAT on Saturday - what an experience..! Just a quick question. On the far side of the airfield and at down at the end to the right of the flightline, there were an awful lot of aircraft parked up. Is this where all displaying aircraft are kept during the show including the spar...

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2018 Discussion Thread

Quick question. I was carting so much stuff around on Saturday I omitted to buy a programme and checklist. Are they still available from anywhere..?

Cosford departures

Just a few shots of the BBMF Spitfire and the P47 preparing for departure from Cosford at the end of the show. Interesting few minutes flipping between settings to snap these and the Typhoon display which was still ongoing whilst the aircraft were taxying.... https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1790/4212...

Re: LOG RAF Cosford Airshow 09/10 June 2018

Thanks for the Meteor info. I knew I wasn't imagining it.. :thumbs:

I had a look at a few of my snaps and although I didn't photograph it, it does appear in the background of a couple of other shots.

Re: LOG RAF Cosford Airshow 09/10 June 2018

Thanks for the SE5a etc info.

I didn't mean the Meteor was next to the Baliol. It was next to the Sea Baliol just inside the entrance to the hangar with the Argosy etc.

Re: LOG RAF Cosford Airshow 09/10 June 2018

Just a couple more requests. On the grass by one of the hangars. An SE5a and Unid WW1 monoplane. Also parked up next to the Sea Baliol was a Meteor which I don't seem to have noted the serial of.

I heard that too. It was suggested th...
