RIAT Airshow -RAF Fairford Sat 14th July 2018.

RIAT part 1 – Fairford Sat 14th July 2018.
After many years of wet  RIAT’s this years event was blessed on both Sat & Sun with hot and clear blue skies. I did half the static display on Saturday using the green car park and the other half of the static on the Sunday using the red car park. I have posted what I recorded from the Camera on each day.
This is not a full log of movements.
