Royal International Air Tattoo 2013 [90 pics!]

Recommended Posts

Last week I've been at the RIAT with Spillone104 and 2 other spotters. It was a really wonderful airshow, lots of planes 

 

both on flying and static display etc.

Here are the photos.

Great set of pictures! Makes me wish the Downloads section of up so I could get the aircraft I don't have to play with.

Sadly no F-4s this year.  I attended both days, and despite being less varied than recent years due to various cutbacks, it was still a great weekend.
