Very nice set indeed, it's like a little Britain with the various airshow acts often seen in the UK!

What a great set; you had some beautiful light to shoot in.

Those Bahrainian aircraft are immaculate; the Hawk even looks like someone's been at it with the tyre black! What's the Indian AEW aircraft? A Saab of some sort?

Embraer EMB 145 AEW&C, also known as the R-99A. Stunning looking piece of kit with all the extras the Indians have on it! :drool:

Why do some of the Russian knights have white wings painted on the tail and some not??

Also - great shots! Would like to see the UAE Vipers at RIAT.

Brazilian ones are called E-99 now, the R-99 designation is just left for the surveillance ones, like the one at last year's RIAT.

Just wondering how the Breitling planes got there? Great subject matter by the way.

Great shots, especially the last one as people are saying. Need to be a bit careful though, bit dangerous regarding your eyesight perhaps?

They were put into shipping containers and boated over. There is a fair few photos of this procedure on their Facebook page.

Thanks for these shots Peter, it certainly looks like a great mix of lesser seen operators of various familiar aircraft.
