Not Another RIAT Thread...

At the risk of boring everyone with yet another thread about RIAT, here are a selection of my pictures from the week. All were taken at Totterdown Hill campsite. Enjoy. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48417649721_4af414b11b_h.jpg Swiss Hornet 1 by Dan Hamilton , on Flickr https://live.staticflic...

Re: RIAT 2050 wish list

Due to global warming and the melting of the polar ice caps, RIAT 2050 will be a seaside show. George Bacon will still be constantly reminding us to check out the Techno Zone, even though it's a bit wet now.

Re: RIAT 2018 discussion

I've just watched a video on YouTube of the 2008 fly past and counted 90, which would seem appropriate. I know times have changed even since then with regard to the number of aircraft that the RAF are able to muster, but it makes the prospect of only 50 aircraft for a much more significant anniversa...

I saw Darkest Hour last night. What a brilliant performance by Gary Oldman as Churchill, helped along by some of the best makeup/prosthetics I've seen in a film. On the subject of aviational inaccuracies though, did the RAF have C-47s early enough in the war for Churchill to take a jaunt over to Fra...
