Amazing Yeovilton set Paul, that would be one of the best for anyone.

I was there, but due to being a young man with a social calender at the time, I could only make the Saturday photocall. Can't remember ever being wetter as an enthusiast, trying to juggle a shoulder bag, camera and umbrella. Nightmare.....

What a contrast with your experience and photos. Hindsight is the most annoying thing in the world, so should have ditched the friends and joined the likes of you !!

Smashing set though, wonderful to see.

Nothing special, but following a long walk in 2016 around the fence at Fairford to photograph a B-52, arrived just as the local constabulary were coming the other way...

Exactly 12 months earlier saw some more B-52s. No police this time, but also no sun.

Then finally all the way back to 2008 with some long-gone airlines that were very much regulars at Manchester!

Makes me feel old is that only the cf188 and the Greek f4s are still in service.

Cheers for the comments guys
Back to Upper Heyford, this time 1987, it did rain, but the sun came back out, producing some kind reflections. If Chris is keeping an eye on this thread, he may even spot a bonus in one shot displaying in the background. Highlight was my first EC-130H and quite a few scarce choppers on display.

1990 was the first of two huge shows at Boscombe Down in between IAT years. Size wise they were IATs, the first was labelled a TVS Airshow, replacing the biennial show at Hurn held through the 1980s. Thesecond craftily called ATI 92 (Air Tournament International). Even the official country list included the participants on the list of countries that attended IAT, notice the United Arab Emirates were not a new country in 2012.
Weather for the 1990 show was mixed at best, awful at worst, raining almost all of Friday and Monday. The main theme was the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Britain with a huge "pit area" full of Spitfires and Hurricanes. These are a few arrivals from the Thursday, the camera stayed in the bag most of the next day.

Does anyone recall if the Belgian Mirage 4-ship actually flew during the weekend?

1990, Sunday at TVS Boscombe Down show, at least the sun came out for a bit. Good to see some rare MoD stuff, the last of the three Buccaneers wearing yellow and green scheme getting a public airing, Llanbedr Meteor etc, some great RAF 75th anniversary squadron colours and rarities such as Portuguese T-38s, USAF T-39 and Eglin F-15s on show. Scanned from some ropey old negatives.

2005 Cazaux show in France, a really good show, home base to French andd Belgian Alpha Jets, wonderful Singapore A-4s, the French Air Force Pumas and the CEV test facility with a variety of types. The show attracted a quality international gathering, a host of Mirage 2000 and F1 variants from various front line units and saw the Air Force farewell to three venerable old timers the classic Mirage III, gutsy Jaguar and mighty Mirage IV. These are from the Saturday Spotters Day.
