RIAT 2019 trip Day 2 – 20th July RIAT

An early start from the Hotel for our first full day at RAF Fairford , We drove into Red car park without any problems and parked up near to the entry into the show. A change from other years as we made our way down to the runway crowd line to set up for the display instead of doing the static as I always miss the pre show arrivals & departures.
