The surprise participant at RIAT yesterday. As in a previous year, she did a round-trip from Whiteman AFB, Missouri without landing.

Overall, a great show despite the adverse weather at times.

Thanks for looking.

Great pictures. Last time I remember them just doing a flat flyby ( last time I saw a B-2 there anyway ), great to see some lovely topsides.

Thanks Tbolt. I think you're right about the flat fly by. I can't remember which year, though.

I remember that. It was either 2004 or 2005.

Not what I was thinking of as I wasn't there those years!

Ah, OK! There was a flat flyby during one of those two years as well, then.

I'm afraid so. I was checking more recent photos as I didn't realise it was that long ago.

Taken with my first digital camera, the Fuji 6900Z. I think I was looking around something else at the time so only got this shot of it.
