Re: RIAT 2024 - discuss most things thread

I have to say the real highlight for me this year was the static display. I haven't seen the airfield look so full for many years, and the huge numbers of large aircraft really helped give it that feel of a classic RIAT. The Viper line up was superb, even despite the cancellations, and I think it w...

Re: RIAT 2024 - discuss most things thread

Does anyone know why the Finnish Hawks had one aircraft in the grey scheme, but the rest in (the much better IMHO) red and white? Is it just that they haven't got round to repainting it? The red/white is reminiscent of the old RAF training scheme. I seem to remember last time , when they displayed ...

Re: RIAT Friday and Saturday

Great set Derek. I do like the Hornet and the Typhoon take-off shots.

I went only on Saturday. The rubbish weather did its best to spoil the day but I still came away having enjoyed the day.

Re: Caper's RIAT 24 - pic heavy apologies

Great set Paul. It seems you had Fairford’s quota of sunshine though. Yesterday was dark, gloomy and cloudy with a few spots of rain from time to time - until about 4.30 when the rain was quite heavy. You’ve got to feel for the Danes. They bring over a replacement Viper on the day, and end up with t...

Re: RIAT 2024 - discuss most things thread

Awful spitfire display, couldn't hear it properly with the f18, what a massive disappointment the only plane I came for. Definitely the only and last air show I attend. Get a grip. In the name of all that’s holy, why did you go to Fairford for a Spitfire display? Have you not heard of Duxford or Ol...

I guess there’s no Arrivals photo feed this year - or have I missed it?
No there isn’t. Due to the high quality of the Planes TV streams it was deemed not necessary.
Thanks - but isn't that only available on subscription?

Re: Noise reduction options for Aviation photography

Another vote for LR; the AI noise reduction is excellent. I was also reluctant to commit initially, but now I feel that I'm getting value for money on my Adobe subscription (and I rarely use anything other than LR).
