RIAT Airshow -RAF Fairford – Sunday 15th July 2018

RIAT Airshow – RAF Fairford – Sunday 15th July 2018.

Day two for us as I was serving on a Jury the week of RIAT, We parked in the Red car park and entered the queue, The gates opened at 7-30am and we started to picture the static aircraft starting with the Canadian C-130 Hercules, having spent the day at the western end of the airfield on Saturday the eastern  end gave me a different angle for my pictures.
I have posted what I took on the camera both on the static and in the flying display. This is not a full log of aircraft seen, it is a record of pictures I took on the day.
