To illustrate the excellent RIAT debrief article, http://www.airshows.co.uk/features/2011/riat-debrief/ here are some scans from prints of the Tu-95 'Bears' that appeared at Fairford for the 1993 and 1994 IAT. Canon T90, Canon EOS 650, Kodak Ektar 100 :shock:

Great shots Steve, especially the nose-on ground-running ones. I won't bother posting mine now :lol:

I really wish they would send them over again, I remember when it started up I was stood there in a trance just listening to it. I must have been 9 or 10!

Fantastic set! As Maise said stood staring at the Bear for ages as it got ready to taxi out!

And no complaints about the tinnitus when we got home that evening either!!
