These pictuers have been selected to show how international the event is, not because they are the best shots, or the most interesting aircraft.
There is no doubt that in the UK we are very lucky in the variety of shows that can be seen. The attendees came from a variety of countries and it will take time to collect them all
Any comments welcome

i know one person that's going.......

and i'm off to culdrose on wednesday, thay have some international participation, but abviously not as much as the RIAT :lol:

i'll post more about culdrose in the threadi started about last year's show.........
 
The Internation Air Tattoo is an Annual Event held at Fairford Gloster and its on this weekend. For many years it was headed by King Hussein of Jordan and you always get a good participation from Jordon. This has always helped the Intrnational flavour.
There are prizes for the best display and you can be sure of something for everyone. However there is always a relaxed feel about the place best summed up by the Italian C222.
Each year also has a theme and this years its PR and one of the more interesting displays was a remote drone. This was launched and the images displayed on some large screens. You couldn't see the thing to take pictures as its only 4 ft long and at about 500yds it was a smudge in the sky through bins. The pictures were scary in the details and shows what they can do these days.

I am afraid that I was only there on Saturday and I missed the start due to traffic and the end. I do have shots of the Typhoon but not any incident. Can I ask what happened?
 
Typhoon ZJ809 was going through the demo during practice and was descending in a half loop.
He had high alpha and a very high sink rate, bottoming out anywhere between 10 to 25 feet AGL.
(depending which account you believe... I'm inclined to go with 20-25 myself)

I'm trying to recall where I saw this photo, but the fellow who snapped it said, "I thought I was photographing an accident."

I'm hoping there's some video out there somewhere as well...


Fade to Black...
 
Nows thats a photo. Cannot say that I blame the photographer for thinking that he was filming an accident in the making.
