Just watching some arrivals on the RIAT site. Never seen a brake chute deployed whilst the aircraft is still airborne. That was cool flying by the SU22.

A few nice maneuvers by the Blackhawk too. :yahoo:

Just a small band of showers which is now clearing East so wont last long. Should be mostly dry for the rest of the day and looking bright with sunny spells for the afternoon :)

Cheers Andy,

I don't think I'll bother with paying for the streaming show today if it's streaming down at RIAT :grin:

Never seen one there or even heard of one there, and I've been to every show since '97

Just seen a photo of the three TTTE tails on Facebook, really like the design and full marks to DBH for a great commemoration :clap:

The tails are fantastic, the flypast is..... predictably underwhelming :tumbleweed:
