On Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th July I went to the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford. I didn’t know what to expect as I had never been to RIAT before. All I knew at the time was that the airshow is the largest in the world, so no wonder that it cost £68 for a weekend ticket. When we got within 3 miles of the car parks we hit queues but the local police soon got the traffic flowing at a steady pace. I was very surprised as we got directed across the runway to get to the on base car park! Despite the rain on the Saturday we were sat down near the end of the runway and enjoyed a full day of flying displays. On the Sunday the weather was far greater and we had already decided to walk around for the day and look at the static displays. When we got to the far end of the base we were in the Vulcan village and I bought a book to get it signed by the crew but unfortunately Martin Withers left just before I could get into the queue. I really wanted his signature as he was the pilot that flew the black buck mission. Overall the airshow was absolutely amazing and well worth the money required. I would definitely recommend RIAT to anyone who loves aircraft. I will post some pictures on here when I have had the chance to edit them.
