What Rhymes with RIAT?

Post by Kenny »

Great! If you're a Geordie. Ok, it's not funny, but RIAT departures was great for me! I am proper skint, so had to choose an option for attending RIAT. Eastern or Western P&V or Rhymes? I went for the final option and it paid off greatly. If it was sunny, it'd be awful there, but the clouds made it ok

Now, I've seen some corkers on here, to which I'll reply in due course, so mine are no where near those leagues. But I had fun and really enjoyed the only day I could make

Good shots Kenny, especially the B-2 and KC-10. Would be nice to seem them at 1024px.

Thanks Radleigh and Dan. It really is a great place if it's not sunny.

Not sure why they're odd sizes though. I'll resize

Best photo I've seen of the B-2 departing by a long way. The rest are very nice too.

it was just a silhouette from the western P&V.

A nice varied selection Kenny, I think I might have to try Rhymes next year after looking at these. :smile:

I like the head on shot of the Gripen with the Meteor and DHL 767 behind. :clap:

Stunning set Alan, but i'm really confused.. I was at Rhymes for the Sunday and at East P & V on Monday. These look to be taking off in the wrong direction for the Rhymes i was at...

Ignore me, yet another Holtyism... They were using the opposite runway for departures. :facepalm:
