Ukrainian Su-27P Flanker at RIAT 2017

Post by Ben Montgomery » Mon Jul 24, 2017 6:45 pm

Just a few from me, of my absolute highlight from this year's Royal International Air Tattoo. That the weather seemed to break for around 30 seconds either side of the takeoff means this immediately gets added to that collection of "moments" that keeps me going back to RIAT.

Superb photographs. I was so glad that the shower cleared just before the Su-27 took off.

Great shots of a potentially written-off opportunity. Immeasurable thanks to the RAF Chinook crew, who seemingly 'dragged-out' their display prior to this in atrocious rain & light.....to allow this to happen? Respect! :thumb:
