I've just tweeted this thread in the UKAR Twitter feed, awesome angle on such a superb display.

Well done.

Unbelievable! Well done to Kev Rumens for silencing the detractors for at least one day. Can't wait to see the YouTube videos.

That looks like one hell of a take off...

Great shot as well, very jealous of you guys down at RIAT.

My jaw literally dropped, he pulled it off the ground like an F-16 then pretty much half rolled at the end of the display. Best I've ever seen.

I have to say initially I was very very impressed-I may have been less so if I'd been in the field at Rhymes though :biggrin:

I was concerned that at one point he hadn't gained a lot of height....

He's a far better pilot than me though.

If i was in the cockpit, I would have one handloosely gripping the bang-bang handle, swear it was not going to get enough height /power, got a little telling off later, so its been stated elsewhere, would explain Saturdays more sedate departure.

I'm confident that's going to be one of the shots that will perfectly illustrate what an incredible display she put on at her last RIAT was.

I doff my cap sir, well captured moment.
