RIAT 2009

Well it's now only a month or so away from the best Airshow on the planet, the Royal International Air Tattoo.

Fairford takes centre stage to the world's largest military airshow, which will feature over 300 aircraft, with some outstanding flying displays.

Question is, which is the best, my personal favourites have to be the

B1 bomber, which at present isn't on the flying list, but hopefully will soon be added, and the Vulcan bomber which made its return to the skies in the past 18 months will hopefully be in attendance following several painstaking months of watching the project almost go to the wall.

RIAT is certainly the place to be with come mid July, with views of aircraft not normally found in this country, to be had. Many people will head for the
arrivals & departures days, whilst the bulk of the public will attend on the show days, being Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th July this year.

Last year's show was cancelled due to the adverse weather leading up to the event, a decision totally understood by most, but made all the more frustrating by the fact that the actual show days were blessed with sunshine. With a bit of luck the weather this year will prove kinder all round!!

Anyway, what are you hoping to see at RIAT 2009?
