Dear UKAR Members,

It's that time of year again when we descend on RAF Fairford. This years show on paper promises to be one of the best we have seen for a number of years.

The UKAR team will be present from tomorrow onwards providing in depth live coverage on Twitter and Andy Evans will once again be posting Live Photos in this thread as aircraft arrive.

Don't have Twitter? Don't worry!
We have produced our own Twitter widget page where you can see all our tweets plus tweets from key individuals in the community, it can be found here: http://www.airshows.co.uk/twitter/

So sit back, relax, enjoy the build up to one of the greatest airshows on the planet!

Yours,

The UKAR Team

Hubba hubba. :rock: Thanks Andy. :up:

Do US heavy bombers ever have special tails like the fighters often do? I don't recall ever seeing a B-52 or B-1b with one??

The USAF ones are most likely up out of Lakenheath on local sorties - there are 18 I think currently boltholed there while the runway at Spangdahlem is repaired.
